Uh - oh...



...seems the older beds (pre '60) had two sizes: 89" and 97".

Time to get creative....

Because.

My wife wanted a stepside, yet didn't share this tidbit with me before we bought the truck. I like the fleetside a little better, but I haven't started with a few ideas I have yet.

So, what about extending the cab to fill in the gap and give a bit more room...

That's what I was thinking. Or just remount the spring mounts so the frame doesnt get chopped up too much.

I like the fleetside bed more...

You might as well paint it red now, and put Team Jacob or Team Edward stickers on it. Fag.

Next thing you know you'll move to the west coast and build a rock crawler in your portable shed.

Could also section and lengthen the bed, easier then the cab but harder then the frame. I don't like the shorter wheelbase trucks though.
