I dont think there is anything to "Convert" so to speak.. Just get a set of wheels to fit it.. And yes, remove your spacer, and your fenders.. Unless of course you go to a super single

pull your front hub adaptors buy full set of rims and tires you will have a little longer rear lugs than others, and if you get rid of your rims and adaptors let me know i could use them

I've been planning this for awhile just trying to talk the wife into a set of wheels other than stock.That front spacer looks like a real joy to take off and suggestions?

when i have to take mine off to turn the rotors i i put it on stands and use a pry bar stuck between the lugs w/ the handel hitting the ground, and a 7/8in end wrench and a brass hammer, works for puttin them on as well

Default 1997 Ram 3500 rear single conversion

Does anyone know if the rear ends on the 2500 and the 3500 are the same width???

I want to do the single rear conversion as well, but the cost of a new bed and axle might change my mind.

Thanks

You could always go with a flatbed and sigle wheel. I wanted to do this back in 05 with my 3500 but didnt i cant remember the reason but im thinking it was because of the rear axle being to wide or maybe to narrow. Ill see if i can find my old posts.
