    I bought one that had been converted from single to a dually with a dump body other that the poor driveline (6.9 non-turbo diesel, couldnt get a head of a snail), performance it wasn't bad as far as stoping, etc. BUT the problem is most single rear wheel trucks are about 9,000 lb GVW, that truck scaled out empty at about 8,000 lb, whereas a dually would GVW would be 12-13,000 lb GVW, so it becomes a DOT issue.
    I was young and dumb when bought that truck, personally I wouldnt do it.

    well, the 91 has a trans driven speedometer, and the 93 has a VSS speedometer.
    if the 91 dually rear has an ABS tone ring in it, you should be able to drive the speedometer of the 93 off it.

    also, if the 93 is a pickup and the 91 was a cab chassis, you will not be able to swap the body and rear, because the pickup has a 36 inch wide frame, the cab chassis trucks have a 33 inch wide frame.
