I suppose you could buy a 2 or 3 year old 1 ton regular cab, cut about 18" out of the frame and drop on a short box. What do you suppose that would cost?Originally posted by jason2
How about building a 1 ton shortbox? My plow truck is a '75 Dodge 3/4 ton shortbox. Of course Dodge never built them like that, doesn't mean you can't have one. Mine has 3/4 springs, dana 44hd up front with a dana 60 out back. 440/4 speed/part time 203. Thing turns on a dime, fits anywhere. Tough as nails.
Of course it isn't as flashy as a new truck, but it's paid for. And if it gets a few scratches who cares.
