4 door shortbox 95, were they ever made??

as my family is getting ready to grow to the point of no longer fitting into my regular cab, shortbox trucks (with bucket seats) im pondering the question: did they ever make a 4 door shortbox 4x4 in the 1992-1996 Fseries (i'm assuming it would be an F250 or F350) i've never seen one, but it would certainly fill the void i may have for being able to have my 4x4 tow rig and shortbox and a place for a family to sit.

more importantly, im pondering if the wheelbase from an extended cab longbox would be correct to build such a truck on. I do know where there is a 1995 F350 4 door longbox with a smoked Deisel and trashed bed ... it would certainly be a good start to building the 4 door shortbox of my dreams, right??

Not in a '95 that I'm aware of, I think they only made a 4 door short box for two years in that body style in ither 96-97 or 97-98, not really too sure which. When I was in HS my dad had a '97 F-250 4door short bed 4x4 with the 7.3PSD.

I think 97 was the only year for the crew cab short box. There was no actual 1998 F-250HD/F-350 since they launched the 99 Super Duty early in 98.

The wife's grandparents used to own this one, and her uncle recently bought it from them.

If your thinking of putting a crew cab/short box on a supercab long bed frame, your gonna have to cut 3-4" off the front of the bed.

Any reason why you a want short box so bad?

its a simple explanation with a long story. see the truck in my Avatar??? its my FIRST truck ... and i still have it, or whats left of it. a fire ate my frame, chassis, engine and transmission, but the cab front clip, and box were outside, away from the garage. While i have thought of rebuiliding it back into the reg cab shortbox 351/5 speed that it once was, i realize that im not 16 anymore, and im going to have to do things like haul carseats and such. So im thinking of letting my first truck morph into this new truck by using whatever parts i still have ( shortbox, front clip, doors) and letting my original cab go (its getting a bit rough around the edges). so there you have it, i want to make my first truck grow up with me

Wow that sucks! I guess you were in the middle of restoring it when the fire happened?



And unless your luckey enough to find a Crew Cab short bed '97, wouldn't a super cab work out for ya?

yeah, the body was off, i was prepping it for a straight axle dana 60, a full floating 3/4 ton out back, and a 460/5 speed ... all riding on some 40" tires ...

i went out on a date, my pops called me, told me the garage lit up... all the old T birds, the stashed away big blocks, my hot rod Crown vic ... thousands of dollars in tools ... all lost...

btw i ended up marrying that girl who i went on the date with, she's the one who wont let me give up on the trucks...

as for the ext. cab, it would suffice, but i really like the ability to fit more than toddlers behind the drivers seat ... my pops picked up a 93 F350 dually 4 door after the fire and i was quite impressed with the room ...

Wow I can't even imagine what was going through your head, seeing all that burnt away....





The old Super cabs aren't to bad really, only downsize, is they have no back door, so the front seat has to move up, and back rest down to get in. But yes the crew cabs have a ton of room in the back!

If you want to stay f150,you could look on ebay and craigslist for a centurion conversion. they made f150's into 4 door trucks and can be had for fairly cheap sometimes.

The extended cab WON'T WORK with kids
Yeah it worked when you were little, but it's it like new trucks with the 3rd door.
A 4door is where it's at.
I'm about ready to put my 4door cab onto my extended cab frame.
The rear body won't fit but you can build a darn nice flatbed with boxes under it and you'll be more then happy.
The 4door is what you want. The extended cab is nice without kids, but a carseat back there would be tight and the seats just don't slide ahead enough to be an easy in/out for you.

If you don't mind building stuff, I'd build the truck you want.

Funny you mentioned that, because the on I posted the pic of is exactly that...Crew cab, short box, 460, auto, gray interior. Plus its main use was to pull a 5th wheel camper, so it has spent most of its life stored in a pole barn and has only about 60K miles on it. Unfortunately, it's not for sale.

Not sure which years they were made but mine is '96 4 door F250. I had a '96 F150 ext cab until he grandkids moved in. 4 doors makes life so much easier.
