Seems like the way to proceed is to take a shortbed kit (either the 454 SS or stepside kit) and the longbed extended cab snap kit and do some cut and pasting...

Or two cabs and frames plus the shortbed.

The extended cab body and interior already exists w/ the snap kit, I'd hunt down one of those rather than waste time and effort cutting up two cabs to make one.  Take the snap kit, shorten the frame, and use the bed from the short bed kit.

Yeah, but those snap kits tend to be a little more expensive/rare than say the USA-1s.

There is a snap kit with the right cab and I do believe there is a Promo with the right cab.

The full detail crew cab frame AND ext cab long bed frame were done in resin, But the ext cab short bed frame never was, kinda surprising too. Best way is to get the ext cab long bed frame from modelhaus and cut it up and use it with the 454ss/stepside frame.

When I made the replica of my brother in laws 94, I used two frames from the tahoe kit to do the extended cab shortbed!
