    Well I must be going into my mid life crises. I want to buy a cab over engine truck and covert it to an everyday driver. I must be crazy. But I fig what the hey, there is no way to miss me going down the road in this thing. But I think theres so many possibilities. More then likely Id be taking some sort of p/u bed and fab it to the coe. What do you think am I nutz or what???

    Yep your crazy and I think your idea is awesome. :jester: I say build the thing and then post pics for all of us to admire. Only thing is finding a parking spot at the small corner drug store might be a little difficult.

    big pickup truck

    Go to International trucks home page and look at what they are going to be producing. A 4700 series truck with 4 doors and a pick up bed. This rig has a dual turbo 466 ci diesel engine. You can pick what tranny you want. Also look at Ford they make the 550 with a bed too. There is a company out there who makes fiberglass beds for these large trucks.

    Yup nothing like a pickup man!

    I was in a Freightliner lot the other day looking at there pickups. Not quite a cabover but close more like a van front end. 3/4 ton.

    I also have a ISUZU NPR and it would make a neet pickup but I would much reather have a custom flatbed on it. They also make a 4 door cabover. both in a 1 ton unit.
    And Ford is comming out with a 1 ton cabover in 2005 I beleave. I have a flyer on it someware.
    So your thoughts are not out of line, tell your wife you have a mind that thinks ahead of the rest.

    Rednecks think alike.....scary

    I was thinkin' the same thing. My Crossbreed has a GMC cab on a Dodge/Cummins chassis. I've been lookin' for an early Dodge cabover to put on it. I think it would make an awesome plow/wrecker package.

    Not a cab-over, but this would be cool to make a pickup out of (with a late-model drivetrain, of course):
