    Looking for box parts to buy or swap for restoration of my '90 sweptline to a step-side. Also any advice on accomplishing this would be much appreciated.

    They used a Utiline bed as it was called basically unchanged until 85. Unless there is something different because of a tank change going to fuel injection, I would think this would be a bolt on, if you can find a good bed.

    I believe you have a 6 foot 5 inch per specs on a 115 inch or 133 wheelbase (Club cab). Utiline beds had fuel inlet in fender and that might be an issue. Both are 1st gen but I would look at bed mounting bolt spacing, bolt to front of bed, and bed to middle of wheel opening. If those areas match, should work.

    Thank you, seems finding the bed, or just the side panels to rebuild a bed is going to be the biggest challenge.
