Re: Crewcab "the rolling resume build"

I bought this body a while back from a board member with the intent of building a crew cab. It sat at my father-in-laws house until I was back in Cali. I hadn't planned on starting any work on this build until my Suburban was done. But since the burb is sitting in CO, blocked in by construction, and since funding for the trip is building very slowly, it was time for me to get working on another project.

The suburban body was rugged. while I was marking for cutting I inspected every panel that was coming off to see if there was anything that I could sell, and there was NOTHING. This was the roughest body I have seen!

The truck I also got from a board member. This cab is another rough piece. Exterior rust was minimal, but the floor and kick panels were rotted.

The green doors are only on there for measurements!

4-6 lift depending on looks, long bed on a 77 chevy chassis. Not full show, but since this truck is going to be my rolling business card, I am aiming for flawless. I also plan on getting this truck built as fast as cash flow allows. My brother will be the proud owner. Right now we are looking at a 6BT for it. We have a line on a frame if the price is right.

There's no stopping on the crew cab, the body is coming off the dual turd. It will get single rear wheel axle and a slight lift.

Re: Crewcab "the rolling resume build"

Are the cab dimensions going to be about the same as the square body crew cab?

Almost... the bed will be in the square body location, the cab is getting stretched 3 inches in the rear doors, and the front axle will be 1.5 inches forward in the wheel well. The cab floor is getting put together now. It takes a long time to drill out all the spot weld holes with just a drill!

Re: Crewcab "the rolling resume build"

Well at this point it doesn't look like much, if not less. I have been extra meticulous on measurements. I also got the roof skin cut off. Now that I have the floor mapped out for what we want, I can build a frame inside to keep everything where I want it. I also stripped down the doors so I can start cutting them up. Once again, I may be going overboard on measurements.







These are out of order, but They should be in here anyway.
