    not to change topic, but has anyone ever seen a chevy truck with a different tail end. I've seen 2 that were square on the back tailgate area, they were the 73-87 bodystyle. both had mexican plates, I'm assuming they were the mexican style?

    from 67-72 they made a 9' stepside bed, one ton only thing. they're pretty rare.

    speaking of which, i'd like to find a regular 67-72 long step for my truck. anybody in ohio know of one?

    There was one on craigslist for a while here. It'd have made a kickass tow rig if I had the time to restore it.

    almost like mine....


    My 82 K20's twin!!..if it were Maroon,like the van in the background!

    A lot of people think the 8' Stepsides are Fugly,but I like mine..an aluminum toolbox helps make it look "shorter"...I'll admit the bed is dinky compared to a fleetside,I don't know why anyone wants a 6' Stepside,other than looks--pretty useless for hauling very much at one time...I have to make 2 trips to haul as much firewood as I could in one trip with my 8' Fleetside truck..:crazy:

    A guy I went to highschool with an old rusted out one. Probaly 80 or so 3/4 ton fulltime 4x4. It looked good with that bed on it.

    Hmm, I really like the look of the 67-72 stepside better, but the price would be right at $300. Although I dont know if I wanna deal with the rust issues it looks like that one has.

    And I just bought my dad's old truck, I am running out of parking spots at the apartment complex, not to mention insurance...and I need another truck like I need a hole in the head.

    Thanks for the heads up tho, I will mull it over.
