Perhaps someone can school me on this. Why is it that we only see dually pick-up trucks on the civilian market while tandem axles seem more accepted in the military?
What are the advantages and disadvantages for each?
It seems to me that a tandem axle would be able to carry more because, well, it's got two axles... I guess the turning radius would be bad, but the the sheer width of a dually doesn't make it much more city-friendly.
Cost? The new Ram dually has an all metal dually-specific bed instead of the traditional grafted-on fenders, so makink a tandem-axle bed would probably be easily feasible and not to costly, no?
