I would love a long bed c20. I didn't know they were quite that cheap down there.

Awesome project! A buddy of mine is redoing one right now too. I've been helping him with little bits here and there. He actually took a long bed and used the brothers trucks kit and cut it to be a shortbed.

I would be interested to see these long bed trucks you have down there for 1000 bucks. After seeing how easy it was for him to shorten his makes me want one of my own again.

It all depends on how much body work they need but I've seen long beds go from $1k up to $3k down here. I never really looked into shortening one, my concern would be cutting the bed and having it line up straight not so much the frame.

Brothers sells entirely new short bed kits. Not the cheapest way but all new metal. Hot rod garage just did an episode on this very topic. They had less money in the truck going this way than trying to find a true shortbed.

Can't wait to see more updates from your build!

Cut one down in the end it's still a long bed on the title you are only lying to yourself

Brothers and LMC make a lot of cheap Chinese stuff these days I'll only buy from classicparts.com, they only do Chevy and their sheet metal is USA made.
