Do you have a link to these alleged conversions?
Also the centurion F350 was a crew cab OBS F350 with the back half (removable top section/cargo area) from a Bronco. There is one near me in Illinois and if I had the extra cash, I would snatch it up in a HEARTBEAT diesel or not, and then later on do a conversion.... :evil:
Such a BA ride....

Centurion did far more with Ford than just making 4 door Broncos...

Centurion, Roll-A-Long and Tuscany are (were) aftermarket conversion companies, they did fancy paint jobs, running boards, grab handles, wheel and tire packages, interior upgrades (wood trim, nicer seats).

My dad had a forrest green 93 Roll-A-Long dually. Chrome wheels and ultra-boards running boards, chrome exterior grab handles, billet grill and a few interior touches

Centurion also did 6 door trucks, 4 door extended cabs, and i've seen pictures of a 6 door extended cab, as well as all sorts of other stuff.

Yeah, like I said, my dad's truck was a 93 XLT with leather, which was not even an option back then.

They did a few of the specialty 6-door trucks and such, but mostly accessorized factory trucks.
