hello guys and gals!

i dont know if this is the correct spot for this but...

lately i have been thinking some custom duallys but i dont know if any of the dually beds are even out there. :( so my question is to you guys is there a 1973-1987 or square body style dually beds?? if not is there any way that i could make one??

any help is grateful.

The only manufacturer produced dually bed for a 74-87 GM is the MPC Super Dually kit, which is actually a stepside with extra wide fenders. There are resin casters our there that make an 8' full-width dually bed but I don't see them too often.

Don't forget that in most cases the dually boxes were just a standard wide box with stepside fenders added. Not hard to make, at all.

Not really. The fenders are completely different in size and shape, only sharing some styling cues. One could make the duallie syle fenders using Stepside fenders, but they would need to be shortened, narrowed, and sectioned to make them correct.
