So, we are going to go over everything the good the bad and true life
personal experience.  If you ever see a dual wheel drive coming down
the road it looks tough. That is because it is, don't go out and buy a
dual wheel truck and complain about the ride. But do you need one?
Lets go over what you get. First your truck has a manufacturer weight
capacity that you should not go over. All single or dual do not have the same weight capacity. Like you could have a dually or a dually HD that would have a different weight capacity. If you look at Dodge they used Dana rears for a long time. The Cummins 2500 came with a Dana 80 hybrid and the 3500 came with a Dana 80.


The difference is a Dana 80 hybrid (single Wheel) has the same rear differential as the dually but the axles and hubs are the Dana 70.  And
the spring have less weight capacity as the dual wheel. Two tires or four? If you read the tires (as example) a 10 ply tire will say tire capacity for single is 2680 pounds, and for dual wheel it is 2470 pounds. Does this mean dual carries less? No you add the tires together so the single wheel can carry 5360 pounds and the dual can carry 9880 pounds on the tires.

So what is the other advantages and disadvantages, the obvious parking
getting around town is easier with a single rear wheel.  I don't know about different trucks but the Dana 70/80 (single wheel) and the Dana
80 (dually) have the same size breaks. That is with pickups and drum
breaks, the cab and chassis has bigger breaks and I am not sure about
disk breaks but I would think it would be the same as drum breaks.

I have a Dodge 2500 Cummins 6 speed I use for work. I always have about 2000 pounds on it (I know it is a 3/4 ton truck). I tow about 30% of the time all different weights. Did it work ok? Yes, but I had a hard time keeping tires on it and I had to take it easy when I towed. So I put A dually rear on it along with airbags all I can say is I did not know what I was missing.  It is much more stable all the time. When I am not towing it hugs the road much better. When I do tow there is no comparing it, the dually is much better. It stay firm on corners I have no sway and just easer to drive. I have to buy 4 tires for the back but they last much longer.
So in the end you have to decide what will work best for you. There are a lot of advantages to having a dually along with some disadvantages. But if you are thinking about carrying a lot of weight or towing even sometimes it could be a big advantages to have a dually.  Take a look at the repair and upgrade videos or blog /information we have.
