Has anyone done this to their Chevy?

    I've seen a few Toyotas like this, and I always liked them. I spotted this one the other day at Schuck's and started wondering if it had been done to a Chevy. Anyone? Got a pic?

    I assume you're talking about bobbing the butt end? Lots of folks do.

    You assume correctly. I've never seen a Chevy like that, guess I'm looing in the wrong places.

    Laketex did that to his first K5. He might still have pic's up somewhere. IIRC he lopped 12" off the back.

    Well, there were a few at BB03... but apparently I only snapped a pic of the one. I'm sure it belongs to somebody here, but I'm bad with names, so I apologize my for my forgetfulness in advance:

    Ya know, Dan, that's a hell of a rig... I like how you're saving weight on the front end /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    It is actually sweet. Brave souls, you guys who cut out so much metal!

    oh and I've seen a few Burbs that've been bobbed like that -- easier to spot, when they have an overhang the size of Missouri -- and they're sweet.

    Might make an interesting combo... a bobbed Burb, might not be much longer than a stock Blazer but a longer wheelbase... hmmm... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    I bobbed mine 6 1/2 inches so the back half was the same length as a shortbed. I dont like them as much when they are bobbed more, but they work better. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
