Regular cab for Monogram ‘91 F-350?

Recommended Posts

Is there an aftermarket cab out there to convert the Monogram F-350 from an extended cab to regular cab?

If not I’ll take a shot at cutting the kit cab down; anyone have any preferred techniques for neatly removing the extended cab area?  

thanks

Chris

I don't believe there was ever a kit of the 87-91 body style that had a standard cab. There were 80-86 cabs and 92-96 cabs so your best bet is to cut the cab down.

The cab and doors are basically the same from '80 - '96. You should be able to use the reissued monogram '80 shortbox cab and graft on the newer fenders or cut down the cab you have.

Yes, the wheel well openings are different, be sure to make sure you address them!

Is this the dually kit? If so are you keeping the dually set-up? I am in need of the wheels and tires from a dually if you are going a different direction. PM me.

I’ve seen a resin crew cab for it but never a standard cab. I built this one when the kit originally came out in 1990 I think it was. Had to shorten the cab, the interior, the bed, the chassis, the exhaust and the fuel tank. Sorry for the really bad pics, they were taken with a potato. :)

If we ever get a sunny day here, I’ll take better pictures of it.

Ben, great job on the conversion and thanks for the photos.

Scott, yes I plan to use the dually wheels as this will be an ambulance; therefore I don't need the bed if that helps at all.

Thanks for the info; I think I'll go with the door line cut as you did.

That gives me an idea on how to build a couple of wreckers I was planning, thanks for the idea of cutting the cab at the door!
