I think that is an SRD which starts at $162k the other model is an ERD which is lifted has 41 inch tires and upgraded solar and lithium. It starts at $227k. That's in Canadian dollars. Unboundfreedom.com

That's a really great floorplan. The slideout and drop-down bunk bed make this truly functional for more than 2 people. Impressive.

Dually to Super Single is about $3k in wheels and another $2.5k in tires. We did it a few years ago with a F550.

This seems like a very good deal considering the 4 door superduty alone was probably around 70k.

If the box is built right this is a extremely great deal.

There are 10 lug steel wheels out that allow you to converted to super singles for cheaper. if you haven't driven a 4x4 dually you may want to give it a shot be you go changing things. The dually wheels probably come in handy 10 times more often than they create a burden. This thing isn't going down jeep trails or going rock crawling. There is a lot of weight back there this setup allows to blow out one or even two drive tires and limp to safety. If you plan to tow stick with the dually. In my area it isn't uncommon to see a lifted 4x4 dually.

Also someone should start posting about how those super singles wear out unevenly and how often they need to be replaced. Also traction isn't remotely comparable especially on worn tires.


It looks like the truck below is using military wheels.

Great points by Deshet. And yes, this looks like a screaming deal *if* the box is decent.

We upgraded to a super single setup mainly for snow traction, which is probably the biggest gain going from Dually to Super Single. I've also seen people put spacers between the two rear wheels to make it less likely that rocks and other debris gets caught up between the two rear wheels. I would think that spacers + more aggressive tires solve 90% of the 'problem' without going the single rear wheel route.

I keep coming back to this rig. I need an international overlander for six. Delete the emissions (just fbecause of lack of ULSD) add a lift and this seems to be a pretty good platform.
