my k-20 was just in a wreck;


http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...to_threadtools

anyway, I was toying with the idea of getting the short step box and shortening my frame since the truck is now tweaked, and what the hey, not worth much to try and sell...........I do plan on keeping the truck forever anyway so I decided why not chop..............so I called a local truck shop that repairs frames to see what they thought.............they won't touch it or consider it..................

If you are ever in an accident and hurt someone or yourself or do property damage and your truck is modified in such a way that the insurance company can kick back on you.they will in a heart beat. Chopped frames will definitely get you in trouble in an accident. I have been jumping through the insurance hoops for the last week talking to agents, filling out papers,DMV accident papers ( there's another agency that can realy cause trouble............you MUST report any accident with over 1500 dollars damage, personal injury or if a vehicle was towed within 72 hours or you can lose driving privileges in Oregon. All of those reports ask forVIN numbers and everything must correspond and if they wanted they can all check your vehicle for safety issues.
So with all of that, as cool as a shortbox looks, I am staying long and staying legal.

Just as a note.................the property owner who's dead snag I fell with my truck turned in a report for damage to right of way before I even got home from the hospital 3 hours after the accident..............The insurance people said they had already called and submitted a claim.............I took pictures and I am checking and keeping an eye out to see if they do anything at all with it.................I am very interested in seeing if they just don't pocket the money.

Anyway I love those short steps and someday may own one, but it will be a factory truck and not a chop.

If any one needs a good 68 step for 300, let me know and I could hook you up.

Re: pictures of shortbox stepsides

Mitch, my drop is a 3.5/5 using 2.5" drop spindles and 1" springs for the front and 5" springs in the rear. I used all ECE stuff. My wheels are American Racing Hopsters in 15x8 all around with BFG 255/60/15 front 275/60/15 rear tires.
