    Thoughts on this. I had originally thought a truck limo would be cool and all with a bed... yeah like this more than I think I might a truck at this point. Also as it is there it would be 29' (give or take a few inches) long. So looks like I would have to plan for a 32' long garage as oposed to the 28' length I was going to build. :dunno: 4' more not that big a deal. :grin: Current plans include a C-70 type long flatbed frame for free/cheap locally. Also will be a 4x4. More thoughts and design ideas to follow as they come ;)

    I saw a crewcab dually limo in Salt Lake once. I think it had a 1980 grill. Wish I took pictures. Why not if you have the time and resources.:p:

    would be so sweet, but for practicality's sake, most likely just 30.5" (stock dually tire size is 215/85/16= 30.5" tall). And also would match all the other vehicles I will have when this is done. my 82 and 84 and also the dual wheel conversion suburban project I will look for as soon as I get home :D

    How about the other way?

    I have thought about going the other way and shortening a burb body to fit on a Blazer frame. The idea being to have a hardtop blazer with delivery style rear doors.
