    OK I found a truck in town here. 87 K20 for $950. The only way I could use this as a tow rig is if I had a crew cab. How far off are the dimensions if I were to slap on a crew cab and a short box. Thanks

    Well I have seen all the pics of this one

    but I was wanting an actual shortbox with the rear wheel centered. I don't really want all that overhang.

    Anybody....

    well thats standard overhang for like any bed as far as I can tell. You would have ot lengthen the frame to make it work.

    Could do a linked rear suspension, and move it back quite a bit. Would have a really sweet departure angle, wouldn't be legal in my state without big stupid flaps though. I really love that Yellow crew cab, someday I will do something so cool to my Burb. Actually as soon as the weather gets nice I am converting my burb to crew cab.

    There is no standard overhang. Shortbed is not only shorter in front of the wheels, it's shorter behind as well.
