About “The Ugly Truck”

Well, this truck was kind of just a project from the start. My dad bought a 4 door long bed, and cut the frame to replace the long bed with a short stepside. He though this would be a neat idea since chevrolet never made a 4 door stepside. And for the longest time before we cut the frame there was a big gap between the bed and the cab, so my aunt called it the ugly truck, and that's how it got it's name. This isn't a pic of it after it was fully complete, but I will update and get a new pic as soon as it is done.

 

Specs for “Mean green”

Cummins 2500 4wd , horse power between between 540 and 600 horse have not put on a dino in a little while.

Specs for “The Ugly Truck”

It has a 454 under the hood that makes about 220 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque. I'm not too sure about the torque. But it pulls pretty good, it's not fast like a hot rod, but I like it because it's tall. Its got a 6" lift kit with 35x12.5 tires and 15" rims. In the future, I'm gonna do a little work on the engine, and lift it 2" more, and put 37x14.5 tires with 20" rims on it.
