    I'm guessin' Burb. If you still have access to the truck, measure the wheel base or crawl under the truck and see if there are any signs of frame mods.

    Errr, maybe bad advice .... that might be a good way to get your butt kicked!

    Cool ride. Someone here had something similar they were selling. Crew cab with short box. It was a modfied crew cab frame, the bed wasn't cut shorter like this one is.

    no the trucks not around anymore, I do remember that it had a good sized body lift (home made),it could have been required to make it fit.

    I found a pic of mtmikes rig, & its wheel base is shorter, the axle is almost in line with the back of the cab.

    So does all this info narrow it down to a Burb frame for sure?

    the frame was never cut or chopped, & the spring mounts were all in stock position.

    From what we can see in the pics, it's a burban frame. I've got a pic of a four door cab on a burb frame, with a shortened bed. I will email the pic if someone wants to post it.

    That looks like a LWB or a Suburban length

    Here's mine with a SWB frame running 52" front springs and reversed 56" rear springs (~123") and some non-final trimming into the cab corner...
