Title: Wide-track Dana 80 Wanted
Post by: bridgepainter on January 21, 2020, 05:34:00 PM
Hey all,

Finally got ahold of a crew cab, saving me from having to butcher the frame myself.  My eventual goal is to put a dually long bed on it.  As it sits, though, with the narrow-track chassis cab axle, the wheels are going to sit significantly inside the dually flares (goofy) and might necessitate tubbing the bed (suboptimal).  I'd like to avoid having to do this.  I have heard that some of these things came with a wide-track rear axle, which I assume would be much closer to the standard width 14 bolt dually axle that came under the 3500s.

Does anyone out there have one of these that they'd be willing to part with?  I'm very interested in acquiring one if there's one out there to be had.  I'm located in Chicago, but am willing to travel a considerable distance to get ahold of one of these things.

Thanks for reading.
