Hi Fellows, welcome to the chapter! Sounds like a sweet pair of trucks! Just curious why you want to switch from longbox to shortbox?

Welcome to the chapter.
Shortboxes do look nice but I'd miss the extra space. Are you thinking of a stepside? They are not that common in the 73-79 era and would stand out.
