hey cranky,
how long is your tray roughly. I am quoting chopping down my GQ patrol into a king cab like yours instead of the normal dual cab style.

Anyone in SA know of places where they perform cut downs.

Hi

Does anyone know who can do a ute conversion to my 80 here in WA?
Ideally I want to do a style side and chassis extension so I can have a full dual cab and a 5' well back ute. I also want the original tailgate grafted onto the back of the cut down cab to give it an original look.

Thanks
Mike

you get any tips on places in WA that'd do the cutting? I wanna do something similar with a Jackaroo but open top instead of a ute.
