Thanks for the compliment.

They were 16.5’s and in worse shape than those pics show. Besides the 35’s rubbed and I didn’t want 33’s. The two tone thing is something I might revisit.

No worries, I figured you’d see it. I don’t remember what they measured. I know it was close because I only had to space them out an extra inch, if that. The 2005 seats are different. The guy selling the Honda ones was also selling Toyota ones but the gray didn’t match my interior. You could look for those. I know people have used F150 seats that look very nice, or Chevrolet seats from different years as well. Good luck!

Thank you, that’s what I was going for.
Something almost stock. Slight lift means I won’t get tired of driving it and stock interior means it won’t look dated as the years go by. Through the years I’ve watched people spend a bunch of money on tweed (or other things ‘in style’ at the moment) only for it to be redone in something that is ‘in style’ a few years later.

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Awesome very clean build. Are you driving the heck out of it? I've got a few questions and apologize if I missed the answers in the build. What size wheels and tires are those? What's your drivetrain? I see what looks like a 10 bolt front, 9.5" SF rear, maybe a 241 t case and some sort of gas motor? Are those the LMC truck sealed beam headlight replacement housings? I'd like to get some Hella's for my 91 but don't think they come in that size.

The Honda seats look like they were made to go in there, and you can still seat six. Very nice work on the install.

You were looking close! I think one pic had a 208 case in it though (I bought it with and 208 and realized I needed the 241 with VSS)

The drivetrain is pretty much out of a 1991 2500 suburban.

Yes the headlights are from LMC - seem to be nice and bright.

Motor is a 350 fairly stock-ish. Pulls the pickup around just fine.

I will be daily driving it. Everyone tells me after seeing it finished that I won't use it. It won't be seeing any mud bogs but it will get used. I've kinda always been one of those that can use something but not trash it - most people call me anal... lol

The tires/wheels:

18" Hulk Mazzi
285/70R18 (34") -

35's had a chance of getting into front fender and 33's looked too small
(yes I told you -- anal!)

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

This was my 1986 I had in High School. This picture was taken in 1994. I saved and worked my butt of in High School to have it. Thinking about this pickup is what got me wanting the crewcab.



All the 90's bolt-on's a kid could love! lol

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I noticed when loaded the kids in the back that its really dark. So I put some led's under the seat. Did the same thing in the front so it looks consistent.

Hard to get a good pic but this is what it looks like.

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

That looks great. Does it come on with your dome light on the door switch?

That is a sweet build, got any pics of what kind of LED's and how you mounted them. That is a great idea!
