    If you're talking about this truck - WEBSHOTS - it belongs (belonged?) to a guy in Louisiana named Teddy. I'm not sure if he has it anymore, I think he moved to the west coast.

    Fwiw, the truck was originally a normal LWB regular cab that he swapped on a 4 door cab and then shortened the bed to fit.

    So a Burb is slightly shorter WB than a longbed PU.

    i'll probably end up moving the axel back some to gain a little longer bed. i already have the 40 gallon tank to tuck up in there.

    Why would you want to convert from a burban to a truck? That should be against the law- here is some pics of my rig. Its not as clean and "purdy" looking as the ones in this thread but here goes.

    since those pics ive lost the fender flares, nerf bars, and added a few more body modifactions due to tight trials but i love it.
