Default Re: 1997 ford f-50 dually build "KaCey Muddmutt"


Had someone ask how the dually kit works so figured I would upload some picks. First I pith the inner tire on which I used a crown Vic rim for the offset. Then I put the 5 8" extension studs on to hold it in place.


Next the actual spacer slips over the studs to keep them from twisting or bending.


Now the outer tire is mounted but it's reversed for space between the tires.


And finally the center cap if put on to finish it off.

Not done but she is now on the road. Love the stance. Looks so much better for that size tire.

Picked up a spare ranger just in case someone's main driver has issues. Got it for a great deal. KBB lists it for $6400 and only spent $3400 on it. It's a 2005 Extended cab FX4 off-road.

Nearly all the parts have been pulled off the old truck and are waiting to be put into the new one. Work has been killing me with 10hour shifts so only the badge has made it on.

Mine came from an explorer and I just reworked the mounting bracket. I have seen some that are made for that year pop up but old ones don't turn up to often.

I had actually done this a while ago. The shock went through the tower so had to replace the passenger side.

Even though I had built the trailer a few years back I figured I should upload the build picks of that as well. This is simply just the back of a long bed ranger cut down and on blocks getting ready to have the hitch made.

V-ed in the front of the frame and put a hitch on it after stopping out all unneeded wires and metal. Also finished painting the cap and rewiring so I can plug the lights into my truck.

No still going to do it when I get around to it. Those are just older pictures I wanted to add since the trailer is part of the build.


This was taken while at a car show. Nothing fancy in it yet but my dog is enjoying the seat I put in there.
