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.
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.
It has air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power steering, etc. It's a really nice truck, and it runs great.
This whole truck was modified, inside and out. Everything may still look pretty original, except for a few things, but it's all new.
