My Suburban Crew Cab Conversion

Just wanted to share my 89 GMC suburban to crew cab conversion with 3 extra inches behind the rear door. Still a work in progress. Long term plan is the build a flat bed out of the remainder rear floor add a lift and bigger tires.

Re: My Suburban Crew Cab Conversion

No sorry. Got as far as I could go with no money and loaned tools. I do plan on using the remainder bed?cargo floor to build the flat bed off of to save $$$. Thanks for the interest.

Re: My Suburban Crew Cab Conversion

I have planned out how to do this myself if I want a 4x4 crew.

But in my plans I would cut or drill out the rivets for the spring hangers, and cross members behind the rear axle. Then from my measurements I could slide the pieces 3-4 inches back for a nicer look when I fabricate a bed.

Re: My Suburban Crew Cab Conversion

That's a good idea and it would make for a cleaner look for sure. But Im trying to keep the cost as low as possible, Ive got $1400 in everything so far and would have to get a longer driveshaft? And its a 1990 not an 89, my bad.
