If I remember right it's on a longbed or supercab frame. The cab is stock, just the bed is shortened.


Also - just in case someone comes across this thread and not the other - here's a link to another thread where LongTravelHighboy hosted a bunch of prerunner (both dentside and bumpside) pics I sent him.

thats pretty slick. Did he section the front of the bed? Cool take on modernizing the look of that old crew. Looks like the 150 Screws of 97+

Yeah I'm pretty sure he did that. If you're interested ask Cheet-o (crazyredneckanyhow) or check his thread in the off road forum. He was doing one like this on a supercab frame.

I dig the shorter wheel base and look, but not the smaller bed or work involved - haha

That white crew cab is my new inspirational piece! My wheelbase will be around 176" when I'm done though.

Lot of work to do!

176"??? Is that a type-o?

I'm looking at putting a crew cab on a std. cab, long bed frame as the 155" wheel base of the crew cab SHORT bed is already way too long for a desert truck. I know you're not in the desert, but 176" is a land yacht!

176 is not a typo, yes it will be hell to park but I enjoy a long wheelbase for towing and I haul a lot so a short box is unrealistic for me.

When I either buy or build the lift I'm going to the forward double swinger steering and will be modifying things for as tight a turning radius as I can get.

My main reason I'll be going with Autofab or building something similar is for suspension and steering geometry and with different valving than a prerunner I want a better ride.

Got it. I know you've got a bit more room to stretch up there, but a short bed crew barely fits in an entire parking lot down here in hippy land anymore. I'd steal parking from 4 prius' is mine ever made it out of the yard & to the supermarket.
