Can you just put a dually bed on a cab and chassis truck?

    Will it fit right? Anyone have a cab and chassis? I am looking at a mid 80's one right now.

    I think the cab and chasis is a couple inches longer.
    That K30 guy will know.

    C&C trucks also come in various wheelbases that are different from regular pick ups and the shape of the frame behind the cab can be different (to accomodate flat beds, etc.).

    The FF rear on a c&c truck is way narrower. You'd have better luck fitting a regular bed, flares, and inside tubs on one.

    That's what I thought.


    If I do buy the truck, will probably just put a flat bed on it.
