I've seen a pic or 2 on here of a 1st gen w/ a 2nd gen bed on it. Kinda weird looking. Seen a few on Flebay, CL and autotrader as well.

I bet a 3rd gen bed would look ok. DOn't know if the lines would line up. The 2nd gen beds look odd.

I would imagine it'd be lame, but the one that kills me more than anything is when they take a 68-72 Chevy or GMC pickup and put a 88-98 Chevy stepside bed on, here's a couple of other X-amples...

should've left the cab and the bed separate. I don't see that holding up too well. I like the chevy emblem right next to the dodge tailgate though.

I hate when people do that. However, I have seen pics of the black chevy before and have to say it works well on it (IMO). What kills that truck is those wheels.

I have to agree with you on both accounts on that one those wheels were hideous when they first hit the market.

As for the international pic with the flareside bed as I was looking up pics lastnight I found that one, I think it should be the poster child for this topic.

Step side beds look pretty funky as they come from the factory anyway and a total waste of bed space.

By using a decent paint scheme and maybe striping you could make it visually blend together even if it was a total mismatch.

I like the funky Glasspack stacks.
Was or is that a Blazer?
Looks like the bondo is cracking behind the cab

Is it just me, or is this truck a COMPLETE mutt? 68 fenders/marker lights, 68 or newer cab, 67 hood and grille, 90's stepside?

I think the stepside kinda works on this one. The only step sides I really like are the Little Red Express trucks though.
