I am looking at converting my 2003 ram from a SRW to a DRW. From reading all of the regarding this subject I have two choices.
1) Purchase a conversion kit from a company like Arrowcraft. Not sure of cost but will call tomorrow to find out.
2) Swap my SRW for a DRW rear axle assembly. Install hub extenders on the front and install a custom made flatbed. If I decide to stay with 3. 73 gears.
3) Same as two except swap in the front axle from the DRW donor with 4. 11 gears.
I read in one of the forum posts that the ABS programming is different for SRW and DRW. Is this true and if so can the ECM be reprogrammed?
I need to convert after weighing my truck/trailer combo. My truck weighed in at 8140, my trailer weighed in at 11360. When I am connected to my 3 Horse Trailer my truck weighs in at 11380.
I live in Colorado Springs if anyone within a reasonable distance is selling axles from a DRW.
