A Truck You Can Hang Your Hat On


JOE YEZZI OF SQUAREBODY SYNDICATE IS AN INTERESTING GUY. There’s the obvious obsession with 1973-1987 Chevrolet trucks (specifically ‘73s), as well as his desire to put hidden cameras inside of magnetic monkeys (It’s a long story, but definitely ask him sometime). And so, when he gets an idea to do something different, he does it. And sometimes that thing is really outside the box.

Take this truck, for example. When he bought the Crew Cab longbed square he knew that he wanted to use it for towing. And really, what better engine is there to put into a truck for that than a Cummins diesel? Then there was the length. That was a long tow pig, and he wanted to cut it down a bit. So he took it to Kyle at Metalox Fabrications and had him do some crazy work. First, Kyle added 3.5 inches to the back of the cab. Then he took 8 inches out of the front of the bed, 2 from the rear, and lopped 4.5 inches from the wheelbase. That math all works out to giving Joe a truck with roughly the same dimensions as a 2019 crew cab.

But there was still a lot left to do. Joe wanted to put in a rear bench seat from a van that would fold flat, like a bed. And the engine needed to be wired up. And the interior needed help. What better way to get all that done than the help of a few buddies? And that’s when the next in the series of One ’N’ Done events was started.
