Long bed to short bed conversion

What are your guys thoughts on this? I have a lot of money in my truck and don't want to sell it and found a shop that would do the conversion for 2600

Pros? Cons?

How much confidence do you have in the shop? Problem I would have with it, you are always going to have a morphedite truck that is a little off.

It's almost a hit or miss I would say. They could get it perfect or it could but a little bit off. But it would look better IMO. But it will make the truck value drop and hard to sell if you ever decided to. But it would also make it a bit lighter too. I think you have to change your fuel tank as well. I'm not positive on that though

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

Does the $2,600 include the new short bed? You need to find a body-builder, no not a guy that lifts weights. A shop that does dumb beds, flat beds, etc. The shop that does our trucks is around $1,000 +plus the cost of the bed and a new driveshaft, to shorten the frame, brake lines, fuel lines, etc.

I've thought about this for months just because its such a beast to drive around sometimes but the pros outweigh the cons and I think its better just to not even mess with it.

It's not that hard. My '05 was a cclb and was my DD, my 05 is an eclb and I haven't had any problems parking.
