Default 2013 1500 Quad Cab and 6'4" Mega Cab Dually Bed

Hello all. I am new to the forum, but I have read many of the posts and have learned a great deal about RAM's.

Ok, so I am planning on getting into a new RAM (moving over from Ford F150 FX4 Flareside : lifted 9").

Here is my thought for a 2013 1500 (backup plan is to wait for a 2013 PowerWagon). I like the wide stance/look of pre-runners. I do plan on getting prerunner fiberglass fenders. As for the bedsides, I'd like to know if the Dually bed would work (instead of aftermarket fiberglass bedsides).

I would like to run a custom set of 22x15 wheels on 38's or even 40's, which should fill up those wide bedsides.

Of course, I will be going with a 6" or 8" lift (if I can find one that has been tested on the 2013) in addition to a 1.5" body lift. I'd like to get as wide/tall tire as possible.

From what I have learned so far is that the Beds on 1500's and 2500/3500's are pretty much the same for recent years.

I know that the 2012 Mega Cab 3500 Dually has a 6'4" bed.

I also know that both the 2013 1500 Quad Cabs and the 2500 PowerWagons both have 6'4" beds.

My question is: How much work would it be to mount the 3500 Dually Bed on either the 1500 or the 2500?

Are the frame mounting points all the same?
Are they different on the 2013's?
I would most likely be using a takeoff Dually bed from a 2011 or 2012.

On my F150, I am currently running 37s on wide 20x14 wheels. I have a 6-inch suspension lift + 3" body lift.

Thanks for any/all help.
