    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum; inexperienced; and sorely of need of good direction from you fine folks. A motorcycle accident 3 years ago has forced me to re-evaluate my choices on where to go and how to get there. I have always loved lots of HP (who doesn't), but because I'm somewhat disabled (my legs are not what they used to be), I've chosen to look at alternative ways of transportation (bikes are out and so are cars) to accommodate space for my legs that won't bend like they should. Can someone help me or direct me to where I can communicate with a custom shop or a website where custom 1-Ton Duallies are tricked out?

    Cheers, guys; I look fwd to your responses...

    Welcome to the GM Truck Club W.C.
    I can't help you, but I'm sure someone will be along that can. The one place I remember that does Duallys was on "Speed Channel" a while back & I can't remember their name. I have never Googled "custom GM duallys" but I'll bet it would have some results.

    edit*** One thing I've learned about 1 tons is that NOBODY makes spindle lifts for them, ha ha, or any other decent lift for that matter..
