    In an earlier post,someone asked about lengthening their K5 wheelbase. I was wondering if anybody knew the wheelbases for the K5, shortbox,longbox, and the Suburban???

    Longbed trucks are for 131-133" depending on the lift and year. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    A suburban wheelbase is shorter than a longbox truck? Yeow. OK, all I need is the shortbox measurement than. Anybody? BTW, thanks you guys.

    I think a Shortbox is around 110-112. Not for sure I am going from memory and it isn't too good. Too much whiskey.
