    will a 80's chevy short bed fit on a suburban frame? im cutting the top of the back of the suburban and the rear floor area has some rough spots. i know the mounts and axle location will be off. But other than that would it fit?


    thanks

    sure anything can be made to fit, your a redneck :D im not sure looking outside at the burb in the parking lot it looks like it would or maybe you might have to cut the pickup bed down some . but if you want it on bad enough you can rig something up so it will fit . :D

    ok still narrowing down the pro's and con's of either turning the suburban into a 4 door short bed or going with a 90's chevy or dodge extended cab short bed:rolleyes: tough decison haha

    Now are suburban frames and crew cab frames the same? except for length. Do they both bend up right behind the rear seats like a suburban frame? if they do im gonna find a short bed and toss it on there i think-if i go that route.


    thanks
