Brothers Trucks is proud to announce the release of our highly anticipated 1963-72 Longbed to Shortbed Conversion Kit. This kit will take all the confusion out of this conversion and will provide you with all the necessary provisions to complete this popular conversion. Designed for 2WD applications only.
The kit includes a laser etched steel template with all hole locations clearly marked, a high strength steel inner "C" channel brace, a new shortbed front-to-rear brake line, new shortbed parking brake cables (rear for 63-65 and intermediate for 66-72) and all necessary hardware to install the kit, along with highly detailed instructions.
By purchasing this conversion kit, you will have everything needed to shorten your longbed frame with basic hand tools in your own garage. The kit does requires welding to finish the conversion but with our steel inner braces, you will be able to safely transport the vehicle to a certified welder if needed. The driveshaft will also have to be shortened before re-installlation.
