    I currently have a diesel 08 Sierra 2500HD CrewCab short box. We would like to carry more people, but want to keep the same pulling power. Has anyone ever heard of a custom shop that has chopped the box and made one of these into an SUV with a third or even fourth row of seats.

    Welcome to The Club. I can't help you with your question but it sure sounds interesting.

    There's very little that can't be done with the application of enough money. It might be less expensive to just go buy a used 3/4 ton Suburban with a Duramax (Duraburb). IIRC, GM stopped making the 3/4 ton Surburban with a Duramax in 2010.

    I've heard of turning a 3500 into a burban, but not a 2500. Look up 3500 suburban pretty much is a silverado with a topper that gets insulated and then the bulkhead is removed.

    I don't believe there was ever a 1 ton Suburban, 3/4 ton was the biggest.

    In modern times no, but a while back there was a one. That is not what I am talking about though I'm talking about taking a silverado 3500 and adding a bed topper, barn doors, cutting the area between the cab and bed, and adding an interior.

    Still might be less money to go find a Duramax 3/4 ton Suburban.

    I tend to agree...

    Absolutely its cheaper to buy a duraburb. I was just stating that I've seen one before.

    I'd also suggest getting a Duraburb. I know that for a lot of their conversions they use the frame from the 2500HD truck and put the suburban body onto it. I would imagine it could also be done with a 3500HD single rear wheel chassis to get the maximum towing ability.
