Dually s10

I was thinking of converting my S10 into a dually, do they make any kits for it ro does it all have to be fabricated?

Thanks

Re: Dually s10

They offered 1st gen S10's with dually looking fenders with a wide tire on the back for a year or two. You could use that rear fender.

'85 S10 4WD Ex-Cab Long bed, LLY/Allison/241/241, Locked 1 Tons with air-ride and 38's.

Re: Dually s10

maybee its me but i would save myself a huge headache and get the rear fender add ons that o1blazeondubs has and just hang a set of mickey thompson sportsman tires in the empty space, i think they used to call this a phantom duallie you would have a quarter of the mechanical headaches of rim joining and rearend fitment your facing plus all the drop and bag kits available would work.

i know its a full size but you get the idea

Re: Dually s10

The fenders I have were designed specifically for a first gen. They line up with a molded in tab that slips into the upper body line. I got them from a company called http://www.arrowcraft.com/. The guy I talked to when i ordered them said they were the last ones he had, and that they were probably going to be discontnued. They also had the wheel adapters.

Mine is a dually but instead of rocking a true dually wheel I run a 10 inch rim tucking a 295.. It's not much to look at and I often catch hell at shows but wheels are a little to expensive for me right now to take the flares off and rock some dubs.

Re: Dually s10

They do make a kits, I have a 1987 S10 Ext cab with a dually kit on it. The kit comes with wheel adapter and 6 rims, and rear fenders, there are a few styles of fenders that where made. there is a place in cali that still sells the kit, 2500.00 plus tax. The fenders they sell look like what chevy would have put on them if they made a dually S10 dually.

Re: Dually s10

Wow that's a spendy kit for only wheels, adapters, and fenders. The only problem is you still can't haul any more weight since you're still using the stock axles and housing! If anything just having the adapters would cause there to be more strain towards the outer sides of the housing. lol

So, where would one go about getting this kit? And do you know if they'll part it out.

I know that, oddly enough, JCwhitney sells the wheel adapter and the fenders.

The adapters are 70, but I can't remember how much the fenders were.

Re: Dually s10

I guess the question is what your goal is.

I must admit that I have a FORD, but managed to bump into the Chevy forum. Hopefully I won't be banished.

I happen to be one that will push the limits of my pickup, and so far it has done ok, although not very FAST.



What I discovered is that all tires aren't created equal.

I'm trying to remember my tire sizes.

205/70R14 - Wt Rating, approx 1521 - My snow tires, got very squirrely, couldn't handle the load.
215/70R14 - Wt Rating, approx 1554 - I think these were stock. Barely handled the load.
225/70R14 - Wt Rating, approx 1675 - I think these are what I put on the pickup. Did great carrying my CitiCar/ComutaCar.

So, 100 or 200 lbs / tire (multiplied by 2 for rear) makes a HUGE difference in the handling of the vehicle.

I'm not big on having tires sticking out the sides of the vehicles, but there could certainly be advantages of dual tires. I suppose it would take a lot of work to make a dually setup to fit entirely under the bed that was the same width as the stock tires.

I bumped into this on E-Bay today.

Datsun Dually Rear End - $200 + Shipping.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=180316637624

From what I'm seeing, it might be worth it for just the rims, but for your purposes, it might also give you a good differential, and all you would have to do is figure how to get everything attached.

I haven't seen 14" Dually Rims, but, I did see 14.5 Dually Rims and 15" Dually Rims for sale. The second listing (15") is from a Dodge Sprinter. I assume it is a commercial rear-end from a commercial vehicle. I'm not sure of the width of the rear-end, but you would probably want to have it cut down. You could use low-profile tires to match your stock tire diameter.

http://www.wrightparts.com/cgi-bin/w...ER_ID=20890155
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=350145055075
http://cleveland.craigslist.org/pts/979047969.html

I'm pretty sure you can cut down a rear-end as I think that was done to my brother's 327 Ford Capri many years ago.

BTW:
There is a similar question in a different forum listing a conversion "kit" for 2 Grand.

Re: Dually s10

Looks like there is quite a bit of info about Dually Rangers in the Ford forums.
http://therangerstation.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=7660
http://therangerstation.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=12908

It looks like either Datsun or Toyota rear-ends work well.

Lots of comments on the quality of the rear-ends, and adding a "Kit" to a stock rear-end.

Re: Dually s10

Howdy all,
It seems like there might be a little resurgence lately in interest in the phantom dually style trucks. I always thought they looked pretty cool, combining the ProStreet look with the big dually look. For some reason I've always thought it would be cool to own a phantom dually S10, and I finally have one. I've had my 92 for some time now, 4.3 Ex cab, ZQ8 sway bars and frame brace, hidden hitch, Red and Black two tone paint, tint, clear lenses, rear roll pan, etc. I plan to move the tailgate handle to the inside and smooth the rear tailgate next as far as cosmetics go, and polish up the wheels.

My son and I were out at a junk yard and found an old S10 body with a phantom dually s10 conversion. We couldn't believe it! We bought the truck, took off all the parts we wanted (wheels and tires, dually fenders, and a few spares) then sold it back for scrap. They're now on the truck, and I think it turned out pretty well, and apparently others like it as well, given the compliments I've received while getting gas, etc.

I have a few pix I could post (after downsizing them) if anyone is interested.

I bought an 8.8 4X4, Ford Exploder, disc brake, posi, rear end (whew) that I plan to drill to a chevy bolt pattern, and front spindles off of a Cadillac limo that have huge pop can sized single piston calipers and Iroc Camaro rotors to do a monster brake conversion some day. Also have plans in the works to drop in a 5.7L small block one of these days. I love the truck, and drive the heck out of it, hauling all manner of mini bikes, go karts, mulch, and other junk, pulled trailers, etc. It has been a truly great vehicle.

Now considering a phantom grille to go with my phantom dually fenders.
What do you think?

Also thinking about some wider wheels and tires. Not sure what the widest 15" street tire available is. Any ideas?

I'd like to keep the wheel/tire diameter about the same as it is to avoid rubbing issues (the stock fender openings are still intact). Otherwise, I'll need to trim the stock fender openings (inside the dually fenders) to make the openings larger so I can lower the rear over the tires. Still undecided on that, as once I do that, there is no turning back (lol).

Re: Dually s10

Find a Yota camper. They have a 4:10 dually axle. Can cut the tube down and axles also or get big wide fenders

Originally, the fenders had marker lights in the front (orange) and back (red), but I took them out and filled them in to make it look cleaner. Also installed the ZQ8 front and rear swaybars, and framebrace, really makes a big difference in handling. Still need to install the hop shock, and steering box, but in due time.
Anyway, here are a couple of pix. Lemme know what you think....

Re: Dually s10

I know someone will yell but if your not going dually to haul 4ton of stones better or tow a 40ft boat better.....

You can used one of them bolt on rim dually kit and is plenty strong enough.
No need to change anything, just add parts.

Also Im glad this thread popped up. I wondered how these things looked extra long.

Are those factory?

Any clue on price?

I don't need to fix the rust on my bed, I just need flares like that

Re: Dually s10

maybe if you used mid 90's chevy duals, they are longer and smoother, if it were lowered and on a minimum of 15x10 or wider wheels with slicks or MT sportsmans... at least someone is being different

93 Noma: TBI 4.3, auto, stock and static dropped.. stereo and wheels ahead.. maybe a turbo!!
