Rare?
« on: April 06, 2016, 10:28:52 PM »
I do not have a crew cab but the other day I saw a crew cab step-side. Is that a rare truck?

Utilities used them, most were standard cabs but I've seen them in crew cabs

No such thing as a rare squarebody.  GM made millions of them.
This sounds like a public utilities work vehicle.  Letric, Water, Phone, County, State, Town, ...

Agreed, utilities tended to use step side bodies, I've seen a few, no clue as to why they actually chose a stepside

Cheaper when you're going to put a utility body on anyway.
Cab n chassis was more expensive than a regular truck?

There are some rare ones out there. Most are common, though there are rare ones.
