hmm i wonder why dually's must have not been very popular as nothing but work trucks back then

5th wheel travel trailers must have been uncommon in the '70s and before...I know in the '80s I saw a lot of duallie pickups towing them.    I've seen a couple '73-79 Ford duallies in 1:1, and they had add-on fender extensions like the Dodge duallies had back then.

What he said. Ford did not make a factory dually pickup until 1980.

...'Ford did not make a factory dually pickup- with a box- until 1980'... ;)

Here's a pic I took of a '72 wearing '87-'97 fenders...

Is there a link to that crewcab/modified box vendor for the non-facebook folk?

Not a pickup if it doesn't have a box. :P

I suppose I should clarify... Ford didn't make a dually pickup (with a box ;) ) in the modern era until 1980- you could order dual rear wheels on the heavier-duty Ford pickups in the '30's, but they were pretty rare and Ford didn't offer the option for very long.

They should- these kits and the Tuff Truck are based off the same tooling.

Every truck in that amt F350 series shares 80-90% of it's parts with every other one, the main exceptions being the chrome trees and various accessories. The exclusive tuff truk parts were only dually fenders, grill, spoiler, back window louver and some goofy 4-slot mags like the gmc and victoria kits had. I believe it was based on the '77.
