I assume that a Duramax conversion will be a fair bit more than a Brunswick Chev conversion.
Good luck finding a dual cab, those that have them usually keep them. Here is probably the place to look though since the dual cabs are a make your own thing.

I looked at doing a conversion thru my fab bloke and it worked out to be about $6k by the time you chop it, make a tray and then engineering it. So if you can find a cheap wagon, I reckon ya best to get it chopped yourself

Thanks MikeH/cr1pp5, i would expect the conversion to be a little expensive. found a couple of duel cabs for sale, just need to confirm if the conversion kits will allow you to use the tb42 petrol gear box? found a company near the gold coast but cant seam to get a reply from them yet.

Hey mate,

Talk to RGM maintenance in Townsville, The owner there has a 6.6 Duramax in his GU that he did himself.

They may even convert a wagon into a dually if your lucky.

Look in the classifieds on this forum
There was a few dual cabs for sale fairly well priced recently

As for costs
Most who shell out a gazzilion dollars on a custom rig dont sell on the cheap unless stuffed

There are plenty of threads regarding these topics even in the members section
