I have seen online that accu-pro had made an extended cab 1994-1998 dodge ram truck cab I'm looking to recreate my personal truck and I need to make it a ext cab long bed, does anyone know where or if anyone makes them. I seen that someone built it by putting two cabs together but I don't have the skills to fabricate that. Can anyone help me out?

The 1/25 AMT SnapFast regular cab dually and regular cab longbed, and the Revell 1/25 Ram VTS regular cab shortbed are the only 1/25 kits of that Ram bodystyle, and the two AMT kits are unassembled promotional models, with fully molded in chassis/engine/exhaust/suspension details...not so great underneath.

 

Accu-Pro made the only aftermarket (model, not 1:1) extended cab and pickup bed I know of, but the bed was a short box.

 

You'll need to find one of the Accu-Pro resin cabs and combine it with the bed from this AMT kit, and maybe use the chassis from the Revell kit for added detail. If your truck is a 4x4, the suspension and drivetrain will need to be kitbashed/scratchbuilt:

ACCU-PRO ???  haven't they been gone for at least 20 years? Good luck findin another one of those. Your really much better off useing two of the plastic kits to build your 4dr.

Find the Accu-Pro cab on eBay or at a swap meet, and you're done. No work required other than clean up. Someone sold the shortbox and extended cab, as well as the AMT kit on eBay last month for $25.

You'll have to keep an eye on eBay, and wait until one appears. I will PM you the completed listing I mentioned above so you know what to look for.

 

Here are the AMT kit, and the Accu Pro cab and box:

This is pretty much what you'd need for your project, Stephen:

I've seen these pop up on ebay from time to time. I keep thinking I want one to replicate my actual truck. But I always find something I need / want worst so it gets bypassed
