RTech Fabrication Will Build You the First-Gen Chevy Crew Cab You Never Knew You Wanted

Want a 1966 Chevrolet Crew Cab pickup? Sure, it looks amazing. But Chevy didn’t make one. And they sure didn’t make a dually version. That’s ok, RTech Fabrications decided they’d build one for you. And then lift it up to the sky.

The Idaho shop builds custom classic Chevys. And this one’s called the Ponderosa. Underneath the bodywork, which has taken two cabs to build one is a one-ton frame from 1972. There is a massive amount of fabrication and reinforcement needed to mate the two cabs. Plus this isn’t the kind of thing you can find off the shelf brackets for.

RTech has also added modern conveniences like power side steps, power windows, and even AC to the award-winning truck.

You might have noticed this isn’t sitting at exactly stock height, either. That’s thanks to a Skyjacker lift and Bilstein remote-reservoir shocks. And the 37-inch tall Nitto Trail Grapplers it’s sitting on. Supporting those are a Dana 60 front axle and a Dana 70 in the rear. The engine is a 1996 12V 5.9L Cummins diesel rebuilt to 550 hp and 1,300 lb-ft. Backed by a five-speed automatic. You know, for quiet cruising.

It’s a bit tall for us, but it’s still a gorgeous truck. And they’ll build you one to your specs. Starting from $150,000.
