can anyone confirm that the early 3500s were only dually, weather it be cab and chassis or normal dually? also were the 03 and newer trucks all aam axles or did they keep the 80? i would like to find a set of hubs at least i want to convert my cab and chassis truck to srw with stock h1 wheels so it needs to be wider

Yes, all 94-02 3500's were DRW from my experience.

I have not seen a Dana 80 later than 2002 in a Dodge RAM.

The DR series did not use Dana axles, just the AAM axles. And yes all of the D/W and BR series 1 tons were all dually.

I was under the impression that the D/W series was available as a SRW 1-ton. Not a very popular option, but available. At least, it was an option during the diesel years. I have a 1990 and a 1992 factory service manual and they both list an 8700lb GVWR for the W350 models, in addition to the 10,100lb and 11,000lb GVWR's for the pickup and cab and chassis dually D/W 350's. I've seen a W350 standard cab single rear wheel truck before, once. It was operated by the local bus line as a maintenance vehicle, so I'm pretty sure there was no DRW to SRW action happening.

You are right, I meant to put the years in there. From about '88-'93 there were no SRW 1 ton trucks.

Elwenil, I was mistaken about the D80's, but I know 100% that the 1st gen diesels were offered in 1-ton SRW configurations. I almost bought one recently, and know of plenty of folks on the cumminsforum with them.

The 93 and down were offered in SRW and DRW from my experience.

I can not see the Dana 80 housing being the same between the 94+ 3500 and the 2500's. They list drastically different lengths for the shafts. How the housings could be the same, but the shafts so different is beyond my comprehension.

Read the post above yours. From about '88 on through '93, there were no SRW 1 ton trucks built. From '72-'87 or so, yes, they did build them.

Sorry but in all my years of working at the dealership I have never seen a '88-'93 SRW one ton. If I can remember where I put the sales data books that list the options for those year I will post them up but until I see a pic of a VIN I can decode, I call BS.

I have a 1996 Ram 3500 DRW D80 and a 1999 Ram 2500 SRW D80 and a 2001.5 Ram 3500 DRW D80 disc in the shop. The SRW housing is definitely more narrow. The shafts on the DRW are longer. It looks odd because the mounting flange is placed farther inboard on the DRW axles. I can get pics if anyone needs them. The C&C axles are the most narrow of the 3. The hubs for all 3 look the same, not like the 14 bolts where they changed the mounting width in the hub.

Since this thread was brought back up, I saw a SRW '92 W350 Cummins the other day and I talked to the owner. He bought it from the original owner, who ordered it new that way. They exist whether you choose to believe it or not.

Crasnzuk recently sent me pics of one with VIN. According to the parts manual, it is a dually, but the door sticker was labeled as a SRW and it was obviously a SRW truck. The GVWR of the "W350" is identical to several W250s I have tracked down. Crashnzuk noticed that the W350 he took pics of had 8" frame rails which is different from the typical 6" W250. According to all the factory literature, they should not exist but they obviously do. They appear to be like the '92 Crew Cabs, which should also not exist according to factory sources.

Interesting. I know that the '92-'93 W250 Club cabs have a taller frame than the rest of the 3/4 tons as well, but I think it is a 7" section height, not 8". Mine has that frame. I wonder if it is the same as the ones we are talking about. If I get another chance to talk to that guy or anyone with a SRW 1 ton Cummins I will take a peek at the door sticker to compare with mine.

Old thread necro, searching for d80 info, but since we're all about tech and keepin it real, I owned an 89 w350 reg cab 6bt 727 4wd srw truck, it was a forest service or something truck originally. It was later used as a repo truck, which in az has to be a 1 ton truck to be legal, this was. I scrapped the truck 10 years ago and unsure of frame dimensions
