Are the fenders the same length on a stepside Longbox & Shortbox?
I'm hoping to convert my '55 Chevy Pickup Truck longbox stepside, to a shortbox. Im thinking that I can can slide the fenders back about three inches and cut the rest out of the front. Has anyone ever done this?

The process is a little more complicated than that,but the fenders are the same length.

The distance between the cab an the front of the rear wheel well opening is what determins a long box from a short box. I think the frame will have to be shortened to fill the void of sectioned piece removed. Good luck if you decide to take on project of that magnitude.
