Well got the fenders off, lights off, cans off. And by gully the tailgate actually works. lol. The little things in life.. Bed seems to be in better shape than I thought. Abit of welding at the light, can area. Im keeping da duallys, so whatever it takes, I guess ill figure it out. Also need bed supports. And again another bridge to cross. Ideas are always welcomed.

You are likely going to have to extend the fenders or tub the bed depending on where the tires are in relation to the side of the bed.🛠

According to the tape measure. Looks like Im gonna have todo both unfortunately. Wasn't sure if there was a templet, or rule of thumb to follow. Im pretty good at winging it, but im sure my luck will run out. lol

Looking at the rear sill brackets and cross sill brackets and board widths I think that is pre-60 GMC 1-ton. Nice find

Regarding the brackets and version of bed, I think the same. Older (pre-60s) xmember and rear sill brackets.

Another thing that might affect this project, be sure the fenders match up to the position of the rear axle/wheels. Since the bed is 59 or older and the frame is newer, they might not line up even though the 9 ft bed is correct length. I know that for the 3/4 ton trucks they did not match, I don't know about the 1 ton but it should be checked.

Yea. im seeing some differences on lengths comparing em. One way or another this bed is marrying this chassis. Well, hopefully. lol. Im kinda wondering also what should be the minimum tire/bed clearance ? Any suggestions??

Nice score! nanner

Yeah the 9' beds like that weren't really designed to go on trucks with duals, so winging-it is a good option when you tub the bedsides and widen the fenders lol. As for the tire to bed clearance, I'd say whatever you think looks good/right.

Funny enough, I picked up a '60s Chevy 9' bed. Also green. Also turned into a trailer haha
