well i have always loved this body. i love the powerstroke. alot of work has been done to the chassis on the 95 as a bonus it is a 4x4 and od trans 3.55 gears new brakes hardware rebuild rearend.... alot of $$ in it. the body is trash so i got a line on the crew it is 300 miles away so the tape measure. is a long distance affair.
i need a tow rig for my 35 ft camper in the sig line the chassis donor is there also.
can anywone help enlighten me on the issues i know wheel base is differnet by 6 inches the 95 is longer. so whacking, weldig and plating the frame will have to be done or maybe sliding rearend. also cutting the shafts. anyone know the bodymount differences.
also wiring but that will not be that bad
i want a/c i will creating the firewall to get clearance on the downpipe and a/c box. are cabs diffeent widths??
any help would be great
Just doing research.
Ext cab wb is 8 inches longer.
Overall length 240" oppose to crew of 116
Rear Cab to front bumper length 133 ext cab to 139 crew
Back of cab to rear wheel c.l. 58 ext to 40 on crew
Calculated. End of cab to c. line of front wheel needs to be 108 for crew 1/2 box gap and 40" for front of short box
So cab has to go forward 6 inches. Cut firewall and reform for psd
Laid out on my frame needs a 9 inch section removed or move rearend 9inches and hack off the end. Hmmm
