Whats a Short Wide?
I have been around, in, on, under, and on top of chevrolet's my entire life. But I am embarrassed to say I have never heard the term Short Wide. I'm guessing that its a reg cab short bed but would like to know for sure. Sorry for dumb question but thought Id ask.2006 Silverado 2500HD, 6.0 Vortec, rhino spray in bed liner, LT package, westin step bars,true dual exhaust
Mods to come: dixie horn, blacked out bowtie, recon smoked cab lights, recon led brake bar.
Thank you lord:sign0011:

I believe it's just a regular cab truck with the short fleetside bed (read non-stepside). That was before the days of the 3 bed sizes we currently have.-Sal

If you don't know the difference between stepside and fleetside you can look in my albums, I've owned both. the black and silver truck was my '89 short wide and the plain silver is my '90 stepside. no reason to be embarrassed we all have questions now and again..Justin

A short wide can be any regular cab, short bed (6.5ft), typically though, the term is almost never used for Ford, and infrequently for GMC. Most purists will call any 67-87 bowtie 1/2 ton with a regular cab and a 6.5ft bed a shortwide.Project: Excess in Moderation
