crew cab

73 j-4500 frame,with a 87 gw cab modified to a crewcab,with 13'' of the truck cab.
has a 132'' wheelbase,4.09 gear ratio currently running 33.5''x12.5x15 ''mt tires
the motor will be a 360 or a 401 with an eddelbrock preformer intake with a holly 670 truck advenger carb.(for the 401 i need to modify a flex plate).
















the cab measures 81 and a half inches from the cowl grill to the rear of the cab.


here i had to pull out the side of the cab to match the roof line a
half inch on each side.



the rear doors measure 25 and a quarter inches.should have been 24'' to fit the window.




this is what i did for the door guts

How much bondo did you use on the doors? I'm going to need to do some bondo work on mine, just trying to estimate how much to buy..quart or gallon.

BTW...Looks awesome!!!

Hey did I miss a full on side picture? If not post one when you have a minute. I am curious to see how much shorter your cab is than mine. Just as a comparison for proportions. Thanks, Blair

Looks like good work. Have you fitted the back seat yet? I was wondering how much room you will have back there compared to the waggy? I still have not decided on what rear seat to put in mine so I was curious which way you were headed. Blair

thanks blair.as for the back seat,thats next.i plan on using the wag rear seat,slightly modified.lol. i'm thinking the seat should be around12 to 14 inches and centered so my boys could have storage and cup or bottle holders next to them.so that should take up the rest of the room on the sides.if all goes well the boys should have the same leg room as in a wag,or a little more.

ok the cab is basicly made a few touch ups needed.
the first pic is what the seat covers are going to look like and at 12.00 a yard,the wife will have her hands full.
the other pics are of the front clip removed,frame sanded and painted.the core suport and valiance installed.
the shock mounts and engine brackets are also repainted.
so i'm only a quarter of the way done.
remove old cab and bed then the frame redone,then hack and wack the bed to 6'9''.
