Default change an 07 2500 to a dually?

I am wondering what parts are needed or even if it is possible to change my 07 2500 4x4 quad cab longbed into a dually, I want to use dually wheels on the front as well as the rear. I want it to be correct, not like a mexico farm truck or JC Whitney conversion.
I would like to build a flatbed and install a Carli 2.0 lift with long travel air bags. It will be my welding truck and I already own it so converting it would be better than buying a used one I dont know the history of, or cant afford
Thanks for your input

swap the axle for a dually. The best way to go. The dually adapters are ok but i have heard that the add stress to the hubs. I would suggest going to a junkyard and find a dually with front end damage and just pull the rear leafs and rear end. And on the front im not sure but you will probly need hub extensions.

Hers is a start. jsut found it on ebay looking for part for my truck

you got to have adapters in the front to run bud wheels. i have a 91 250 that i changed to a dually flat bed. i hear guys talk like some adapters are not good. mine are very heavy. i know good ones are out there.
