Factory single cab shortbeds?

Meant to post this up sooner but forgot. Please excuse it being in multiple forums, I know some ppl only lurk in certain forums.

I've seen plenty of singlecab shortbed powerstrokes being used by the Navy down at Norfolk, and just seen a few used by the Marines here at Quantico this past week. They do have stakeside beds which might make a difference, but still...

Anybody got some leads on getting these factory shortbeds?? Maybe get em all used up and drop a built motor in? :thumb:

The shortest wheel base I'm aware of is 137 inches. Can you get a pic of one of them?

Re: Factory single cab shortbeds?

The military shortens the frame (or Ford sells them already cut) and sticks a short steel bed on them and uses them for flight line tugs and munition movers. Usually geared way low as they only move about 15 to 25 mph. Here is a picture of one. ( At least I believe this is what this post is referring to, the TV-550)

Re: Factory single cab shortbeds?

Now thats a shorty truck pretty cool! Wonder if you could find a retired truck like that and swap gears. Nifty

At that wheel base it looks like the wheels are bolted to the end of the transmission.
