    I saw this on eBay. It's got a salvage title and the description says that it caught fire and they decided to convert the 2006 Ford 2WD Single Cab to a 4WD Crew Cab( Plow and spreader included).

    If this is true, how long was the bed prior to reconstruction? Or, do you think the lengthened the frame? I looked closer and it does appear as though the frame has been lengthened. Or, maybe they "put" two trucks together? Either way, seems kinda sketchy (plus the way it's listed - private listing).

    Some stuff I noticed is wrong.
    The radio is missing the volume knob.
    They are running an old rusting unimount (with no lights) off a ultra mount.
    The front of the dump bed looks dented/wrinkled.
    Under the dump body half of the frame looks like fresh paint and the other half looks old/dusty.

    his feedback on ebay is generally pretty good. Email the seller and ask for a more detailed description of what they did to the vehicle. If everything was done right he should't have a problem telling you what they did.

    That's around London Ky., there are a bunch of lots that sell wrecked trucks and cars for rebuilders. I bought my first truck in London Ky, a 91 Chevy Pick-up, had been under water. One of the best truck I ever had.

    I'm not personally interested in the truck. I just thought it was interesting (and kinda crazy) to "splice" a truck together like that. I know they extend frames for large dump trucks, so it's probably not an issue. But I'd rather not deal with something "morphed" like this one.
