1996 F350 Dually Lifted

There is a rusty truck on the road for several years. I saw it up close today, its a 1996 F-350 four door, crew cab, long box, 4×4, dually. I can’t find any information about this combination. Duals seem to be 2wd. Is this truck made by Ford? The thing is a beast, I was trying to see if it was for sale. thank you

Ford F350 4 Door 4×4

Dual 4x4s are all made by third party companies. The most common was Centurion, who made some other enhancements to some of the trucks

Oh right I’ve heard of them, they also make four door Broncos. The picture in your signature reminded me of this truck I saw in town a few years ago, sitting next to a business for weeks. Then I should have asked about it.

It can also be prepared at home. Taking the 4X4 crew cab, the pickup has a DRW axle at the rear with dual hubs at the front.

Plus transfer case, and driveshafts. I’m pretty sure the earlier F series trucks had narrower rear frames to accommodate the DRW. Do the OBS trucks have the same frame widths between SRW and DRW?

Ford hasn’t made 4wd dually in all the years that I remember correctly. All of them are done by third party or motivated owner. As long as it’s done right.

The biggest problem I can think of and this goes for my truck as well, is the parking brake sucks. The Fsuperduty had a driveshaft mounted parking brake but with the transfer case up to 4wd it had to use the factory parking brake.

Does it have a dual bed and front matching fender flares? I guess a homemade job can overlook the front flares

Get a dual pickup rear and dual D-60 front hubs As mentioned before making one is very easy.

F 350 Crew Cab Dually 4×4?

Wheel spacers/adapters help tell which way the truck started or less likely to buy a 2x dual and convert to a 4x.

Looking at the yellow behind the passenger fender, I’m going to say it was originally a 4X4 4 door SRW government owned truck that was later converted to a dually and painted black after retiring from government service.

I was thinking he was a box replacement. It is in better condition than the cab. The cab is a little rusty, I don’t see any blemishes on the box.

I’ve wanted to do this build for a few years now but between moving from TX to SC, fixing up a house, changing jobs, getting married and having a son it wasn’t a priority. This past Saturday I finally picked up the project truck! This is a 1985 F350 Diesel! It’s missing a bed, rear end, wheels and transmission, and the engine needs to be rebuilt/replaced but for how little rust it has in this area I couldn’t resist it for $500! (One of these with 350k miles of rust sells for at least 5-6 grand around here and Powerstrokes and Cummins trucks are usually 16-30+ grand.) My dreams for that would be to convert it to a 6 speed 4×4, raise it 6″ and put a 35″ Dick Sepek on the very country or Use 8 inches and run 38″ Michelin XMLs, and rebuild and mod the 6.9 or swap in a cummins. I also scored a nice rear bumper for 20 bucks! I’m waiting to hear some adds on craigslist for some axles and looking online for a shackle reversal kit. .Pics coming soon! I’d like to see some pics of the 1980-1997 Crew Cab Dualis 6″ lift and 35″ and 8″ lift and 38″!

Even with the ol’ red gas, it’s great hauling it up and down the mountain roads of SW NC!

The cab looks in great shape but looks like you still have your work cut out for you.

Ford F 350 Crew Cab

I think it’s over in the 73-79 truck area they have a crew cab only section they might want to stop by to see what’s going on.

I like to hit up all the other year truck posts to see what others are doing, even see what they do to use on my truck.

Ie: how about painting Ford letters on the tail gate like factory or custom gate latches for the flare sides or bed side wood extensions that look good and not just 2×4 bolts.

It is a 2wd frame. It needs to be modified to make it 4×4. A great way to get a little lift while you go is to put a front shackle reversal kit on the front. Here is the link.

That gives you 2 inches of lift, and the stock Dana 60 front axle and springs give you another 2 inches. So you need lift springs to go higher than that. I assume you’ve lifted a truck before? If you do all the suspension it will require driveshaft modifications. The above kit makes it easy to modify the frame to fit leaf springs to a 4×4 front axle.

They didn’t make a 4×4 dual pickup until 1999 when the Super Duty came out. I know you see them running around, but they were replaced by the cab and chassis truck, which were two styles of front ends made for early trucks. Don’t fall into the trap and buy a cab and chassis double 4×4 and expect to use the rearend as well. The cab and chassis were redesigned with a special frame and special width to accommodate standard utility beds. Is your truck pickup frame correct? If so, you need a dual pickup rearend for this.

If you need an engine, I’d lean towards the Cummins. The original 6.9 and 7.3 engines are great engines, but they are underpowered. They needed a turbo to get any power, and they didn’t come out with a turbo until late 1994, about half a year before the Powerstroke came out. You’ll see all 6.9 and 7.3 IDs running with turbos, which are mostly aftermarket. Works well, but they don’t have the power capacity that Cummins has.

If you’re sticking with the international engine, I’d ditch the 6 speed idea. It does nothing but give an extra gear in the middle of the 5 speed zf and it’s not an easy swap. And it requires a 6 speed transfer case. The 5 speed stuff is bolted onto any early Ford transfer case.

Need Help With The Age Old Question: 460 Or 7.3?

You may want to consider getting axles from an aftermarket Ford pickup. Although they have metric wheel models, they are easy to find and offer you rear disc brakes. Did some searching, the aftermarket front axles use coil springs, not sure if you can retro-fit it to your 2wd coils you have now.

Not a Ford but a GM 6.2 diesel to which I added a Gale Banks turbo kit. It had plenty of power then just had to watch the EGT gauge.

BTW when the motor had 100K I sold it with 230K still running great.

Does a more modern cummins make more power but does it remove the turbo and what does it look like?
