Bed corners interchangeability???

Postby Lurker » Sun Oct 08, 2017 11:14 am

Hey guys, I've finally got the ball rolling on my 67' crew cummins project. I'm going to convert the truck to a long bed but wanted to have the 67' length long bed with the pre 66' tail lights. Is this as easy as replacing the rear bed sections? Also does anyone make the whole rear corner or bed end whatever it is called. Thanks as always

Not easy and not simple. Everything is different and will require many mods. The bedsides are a different shape and the contours won't match. U will also need an early tailgate and chains.

Dang! I’m wondering now if I could just cut the face out and weld the older style in its place.

What is it u are desiring? Round lights? If so, the round lights are wider than the distance between the edge of the bed and side of the tailgate.

That's exactly what I was wanting. I just noticed myself looking at a few pics, no way will this work out. So, I guess I will be happy with the lights she came with. Thanks for the info

What about changing to a slightly smaller vintage light?
