They are all custom jobs, dodge never made crews from 93 to 02. If you're interested I've got a rite-up in bodywork section, I'm building my own crew cab from a 96 ext. Cab.

I dont know why people are trying to argue this...it is so obvious that is done by a conversion company. The seats dont match, there is no B pillar trim and the door trim panels dont match. Nothing from the factory will come that way

the closest thing that dodge made to a crew cab was a concept ram SUV in 92 I think, I saw a pic of it sometimes back. If I find it I'll post it here.

I was looking at that truck earlier... if you look at the Q & A there are like 2 other people with the same truck. Dodge made a handful of them apparently.

Its clearly factory:

Dodge : Ram 3500 - eBay (item 300516691548 end time Jan-28-11 19:15:00 PST)

Very cool.
this guy is actually trying to convince people that this is factory, he states that the factory sticker is on the rear door post and. (thats why its there, because they cut the cab in half and srtecth it!) If he trully beleaves its factory then he's gulible and that judge took him for a ride.

What did the doors and their panels come off of? The claim is that this is a factory conversion, I don't see how that is false.

There was never a crew cad between 93-02. I've heard of dealerships in the 90's taking a brand new truck and sending it out to a second party to have this done. This is probably the case.

dodge did make them, a guy here in town has a 96 i believe, full crew cab but the rear is suicide. he is rich and had it made like that from the factory. with the v10 viper motor that now has a supercharger on it.

It's called an up fitter.

Dodge, Ford, and GM usually send Cab and Chassis vehicles to an upfitter as an incomplete vehicle. The upfitter will install stuff like utility body, dumb bed, flatbed, rollback chassis, snow plow, etc... Then the upfitter sends the modified truck back as a completed vehicle and you see it at the dealership.

They can send complete vehicles to upfitters for modification too... Conversion vans are one of those examples. Hence why they're called Conversion Vans...


Good luck getting parts for the rear doors though.
