Can you convert a truck into an SUV by cutting the back of the cab and putting on a shell?
There's going to be more to it than that, truck frames are intended to have some flex between the cab and the bed, so you would have to add some more reinforcement there. And legally if you modify the frame you ought not sell the vehicle, just because doing so voids the factory warranty, so in the event of a collision you take full responsibility of the durability of the frame to withstand impact. Just something to be aware of. With that said I'm planning on doing the same, making the GMC equivalent of the Ford Excursion out of a one ton dually. Installing the interior creature comforts and running climate control, lighting, speakers, and whatever else you want back there will be the real money pit for you. And something else to keep in mind, the bed of the truck is not flat, making mounting things back there a bit more awkward, and the frame of the truck does not exactly lend itself to fold flat SUV seats. If you;re going for a full blown SUV conversion you'll have a bit of work ahead of you, or you can pay someone like Centurion to do it for you. Another option would be dropping a different engine in an SUV, like Duraburb does. There is a company that does the same with Ford vehicles, in southern Florida. Look around some more and decide what route you want to go.
Could you, yes. Is it legal, no. Will the van run better, no.
funny thing I actually have one myself!the answer is yes you can but it takes alot of work though.it took me about 5 hours to put seats in m baby!i love it!
If the extended cab is a short bed, yes. Same generation vehicle.
Seat belts are required for the driver and all passengers age 6 and older.Riding in the cargo area of a pickup truck is not permitted for persons under age 15 unless an adult is present or when secured by passenger restraint; some other exceptions apply.
Some cars can and have been made into convertibles. Consult a reputable body shop to see if your car can be so converted.
You can, but you will have to install a Y pipe collector behind the headers.
Vin numbers are also stamped into the frame at various points.
Yes you can,all you have to do is go in any water(next to shore is alot easier)when get in the water try to pick any thin but a boat. For example try to get a car. When you open it up press the button that you would use to put it down. After this run on to shore and don't press anything but the b...
Will the engine an transmission from my 1995 Chevy silverado extended cab truck fit into a 1995 GMC extended cab truck both 4 wheel drives?
Yes. Same engine, trans, and transfer case in the same style truck.If they're the same engine and transmission, yes. If they're different engines and transmissions, some modification may be required, e.g., you're replacing a 305 with a 4L60E transmission with a 454 and 4L80E transmission, or you'...
Yes, but if it's going into a car with an electronically controlled transmission, the ECM will need to be reflashed with parameters to operate the automatic transmission.
It's POSSIBLE, but RARELY sensible. There are usually quite a lot of small parts that aren't interchangeable and make the swap a lot harder than you think. The sensible option is usually to sell the car you don't want and buy the one you want instead.Yes, in most cases.Yes, but whether it's a sim...
It's All About Platform.For many car experts, the difference between the two is simple: A crossover is based on a car's platform, while an SUV uses the chassis of a truck.The result is that crossovers use "unibody" architecture, meaning the body and frame are one piece, while SUVs use a "body on ...
With the right box...they also sell slim subs...they don't hit as hard but fit alot easier...but with the right box you should be able to fit a 12
No. According to the CHP, you'll have to put the car seat in the front seat if the car seat cannot fit properly in the back of the extended cab.
For one, it is illegal. Also, your check engine light will be on constantly, as there are sensors contained within the catalytic converter. In some states, this will cause you to fail inspection, and leave you unable to renew your registration.Agreed, and just removing the cat will play havoc wit...
AH......It is of course possibleIt is likely illegal (but not where I live)And it may require tricking the rear or second 02 sensor into thinking it is still there.
There's 2 things your question could mean.1. Can I put a brand new transmission that is identical to the one I already have in my car?2. Can I put a transmission from a newer vehicle(that is different from your vehicle's) in my car?Answer 1. If the transmission you want to put in is the same tran...
Push it back. to Recline it pull the strap by the door.
No. The lights are switched independently of the transmission.
It takes different components to connect an engine to either a manual or auto transmission.If you want to take the time to do it it can be done but it will take a lot of labor and parts.Short answer: YES but it is not practical.
There should be a picture of it attached to the holder.
yes they were made with the same engine
This kind of rack attaches directly to your vehicle's hatch, so it doesn't require crossbars or a hitch.All you need to carry bikes is the rack itself.Trunk-mounted bike racks attach to your SUV's hatch or doors by means of hooks, straps, and buckles.If your SUV has a spoiler, you can still use a...
I used 1/2" double stick tape that is used to apply body side molding. It worked perfect.
If you were to put a 12' sony explode in a box an on the back put a 15' kicker compition should you put a divider between them?
absolutely the magnets are too strong to be back to back
It would definitely not be possible to convert a gas engine into a diesel engine because the cylinder block and head would not be strong enough. A diesel engine needs a much higher compression ratio than a gas engine, which means the gas engine's cylinder block and cylinder head would probably ex...

Do you get a double cab with a super cab storage option behind the rear seats In other words 2 rows of seats front and back with an extension for storage inside the vehicle behind the rear seats?
The best option for both seating and storage in the Ford truck would be the supercrew option. The supercrew cab seats up to 6 passengers and has lots of space in the back.
Build a scissor lift and attach to the bed and frame via crossmember. 12 volt dc pump and 3"X10" hydraulic cylinder.
When passing another vehicle should you cut back into the right lane until you can see the vehicle that you just passes in you rear view mirror?
When passing another vehicle, do so until that car is fully visible in your rear-view mirror. Once it is, signal and move back into the lane.
How can you fix the back up sensor in your 2004 mercury mountaineer it stopped working a couple of days ago also the light on the dash goes on when you put the SUV in reverse?
First, have the vehicle in reverse with the key in the ACC position. Remove the bulbs and see if there's power going to them with a test light. If not, check the fuse first. The switch you're looking for will be on top of the transmission... you'll see two wires running into a weather pack termin...
Customers that purchase a long bed camper and have it installed on a short bed truck will need to leave the tailgate on their truck and in the down (lowered) position.For the 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks, most customers do not need any type of suspension upgrade to put a long bed camper on a short be...
It can be done, but it won't be a simple "plug and play" swap.
You should have some contacts under the hood for jump starting the car from a charger or another vehicle. Hook up jumper cables to another vehicle and use the power from that vehicle so you can open your trunk.
Converting a Gas Engine Car to an Electric Powered Car You can convert a gasoline-engine powered car to electric power for about half the price of a new electric vehicle.While virtually any auto can be converted to an electric drive, select one that had decent fuel economy as a gas-fueled car.
Infants must never ride in the front passenger seat when it is equipped with an air bag.All children should be properly restrained in car safety seats, booster seats, or lap/shoulder belts appropriate for their size and age.The switch should be off when transporting children in the front seat.
How much weight should be added to the bed of a pickup for better winter driving traction? I generally put about 400–800 pounds right at the back of the bed.Over the axle works too, but the leverage gained by putting the weight further back means you need less actual weight.
That would depend on the size of your pickup truck. They are rated for different weights. For example, if you have a 1/2 ton truck then you can carry 1/2 ton of weight. If you have a 1 ton truck you can carry 1 ton of weight.
Is there a website where you can go to and type in a type of car or truck and put colors on it and wheels and customize it?
Discount Tire, at (see related link) lets you see the wheels on your vehicle and in the basic colors.
Yes, of course you can!The real question to ask is will it stay there!It really depends on the way the convertible window is designed and also the adhesive strength of the decal you are applying. If the window is a material that folds, try to put the sticker on an area that doesn't appear to be f...
As long as the circumferance of the tires is very similar you won't have a problem. Make sure the tires are the same load rating also.
Depends on what year. Many, it's just a matter of removing screws and clips, then pulling it out. Some, you have to go into the dash.
No. The different generations don't have compatible dash assemblies.
In some places this is at the officers' discretion if he did not run your plates or check you for Wants & Warrants.Like if you parked just a smidge too close to a hydrant and he just gave you a verbal scolding.
Can you put a lien on a truck that you purchased for your boyfriend because he has not begin to pay the loan back?
Only if he has signed a document that recognizes that you you lend him the money, that he promises to pay you back and that he pledges the truck as collateral for the loan. If this is the case you can legitimately put a lien on the truck and repossess it if he does not pay you. Other than that he...
You can, but it is extremely complicated and not worth it. Your much better off just getting the deck with the dash mount and wiring harness so it makes hook-up easier and allows you to swith back to stock incase you decide to sell the vehicle later on.
You should never cut into the open space between a truck and the curb if the driver has signaled to turn because?
large trucks cannot turn without first swinging wide in the opposite direction.
Would like to put a complete 4.0 jeep motor and trans out of 2004 grand Cherokee into an old Chevy truck?
It could be done, but, IMO, not worth it. You'd be better off going with a GM small block and a 700R4 transmission.
Do you mean a rumble seat? That is a seat that folds out of the rear chassis of a car.
the only major differences are SUV's are typically four door vehicles and they usually come with four wheel drive. its rare to see an SUV without four wheel. Trucks can get (from factory) stronger frames such as with F-350 or 3500. these frames aren't used on SUV's. the largest frame ive seen was...
A tonneau (US: /tʌˈnoʊ/ or UK: /ˈtɒnoʊ/) is an area of a car or truck open at the top.It can be either a passenger or cargo space.A tonneau cover in current automotive terminology is a hard or soft cover that spans the back of a pickup truck in order to protect the contents of the payload.
Can you reinstall the coil spring back on the the strut bye bolting the strut back in place on the car and jacking the car down then putting bolt back on the strut mount?
I suppose that is possible, however I would not recommend it due to how dangerous it could be. The proper way to remove and intall a coil spring is with a spring compressor, available at you local parts store. O'Reilly Auto Parts has one for $32.99.
It would require removing the gas engine and all of its related components. Also, the addition of the electrical parts must be done with care. Those parts; a DC motor of sufficient strength, the motor controller, the necessary number of batteries, etc. need to be compatible. Although many convers...
Under the vehicle, the manifold connects to a "head pipe", and the head pipe connects to a device that just looks like a mufler, but it's not. That's the catalytic converter.
It depends on your speed and the age of the child. If you are going faster than 40 MPH upon impact, there is a very low chance of survival. If you knock the child at 2 MPH or slower, they'll get nothing but a bump on the head.
Normally the car that hit the other car is going to be at fault. The vehicle behind you was obviously too close and was not following at a safe distance that would allow him to stop if you did. The police should have issued him a ticket.
When renting an enterprise truck are you able to move across the country and give the truck back to a different location from which you originally rented?
Yes, you may rent an enterprise truck and take it back to a different location. You only need to rent a truck for one way, but let them know when you are ordering a truck that this is what you want to do.
An average semi 'tractor' is about 30 feet long.
Usually hatchbacks are compact cars which are easy to handle and they require less space for parking.MPV is used to ferry a large number of people in comfort.SUVs have high driving position and they are said that they can be taken off the road.
You can put carburetor and fuel injector cleaner into the gas. Other use-full things will be to change plugs, fuel and air filter,check PCV valve, check for any broken or loose vacuum hoses.
When you put your truck in reverse its making a slipping noise and will not move when you put it into drive from park theres no problem?
Your transmission is done. Take it to a tranny shop.If you have a Manual tranny: Your blocker rings are worn out or you somehow successfully ground the teeth off of a straight gear.If it's an auto tranny: Could be hydraulic valve problems or clutch pack/band problems.
it is covered by your home insurance
Although it is incredibly dangerous, it is not illegal in every state to ride in the back cargo area of a pickup truck.The legality of passengers traveling in the back of a truck varies greatly from state to state.In some states, whether or not a law is broken depends on the passengers age.
Some states allow parents to place children in forward-facing car seats in the front of a pickup truck even if the air bag cannot be turned off, though it is not recommended, but it is illegal to place a child in a rear-facing car seat in the front of a pickup truck if the airbags cannot be turne...

The DMV website states that on AWD cars when chains are required you should put chains on the rear.For an all-wheel-drive vehicle the best option is to use chains on all four tires as long as the vehicle manufacturer does not prohibit this, but if only one pair is used they should go on the front.
The dealer may be able to help you out with that one, any dealer that sells your make. Their parts department should be able to look up some info based on the VIN.
If you remove the inner core of a catalytic converter in a truck will it improve sound and performance?
It may do that but it will surely fail all emission standards. If you fail that then you can't drive it anyway.
anything is possible with 3 things.. Money, time and Creativity... is it worth it... not typically, you could end up having the truck apart for a long time as well as having to blend fenders together and hoods and even a core support
Adding power steering is a very popular modification for older vehicles, most notably old trucks or muscle cars.Rack and pinion steering offers more direct steering feel, since the tie rods are much shorter, and it also relocates the steering gear to make room for an engine swap.
