Here's the deal....I have an '03 1500 silverado single cab, short bed on 20's. It has a 5.3 V8. My dad has an '01 1500 ex-cab with the smaller motor (forgot what size). I have the option of switching trucks with him. My truck is still stock only thing done to it is the wheels and tires (not much). His already is lowered, has a system, and will eventually have 20's. I'm most likely going to lower it and put a system in as well...but i dont know if i should switch. My friend says i should...but i'm still thinking. Does anyone have any opinions on what I should do and why? Thanx a whole lot. Here is a pix of my truck and his truck (before the 20's) so u can get a visual.

Switch if he has a 4.8. It's not that much of a difference if you drive fast. You'll like the extended cab better. More room for people and stuff. :naughty:

If ur dad has the 4.8, switch with him. and having more room with the extended cab is a good thing. personally i like the 99-02 styling better of the nbs silverados, and if you do too, thats another reason to switch.

i would keep yours personally, but im guessing he is paying for both of them so if thats the case it dont matter, put your wheels on his truck :crazy:

Hmmm, depends on how much you need more room. If you dont I would keep your truck. I couldnt go back to the old interiors, I like the new interiors and all features it has. Plus this truck is newer and bigger engine. So really, do you need more room?

i personally love extended cabs, just the look of them. I've never actually been inside a 03+ truck while it was running, but i imagine that it is alot nicer. I remember reading that its harder to put a system in a 03+

I agree w/ E.M.D.....:read: The question is do you need/want the additional room? Personally, I would keep your truck. The 03'+ interior is much better and I like the aggressive front end. :cool:

I like the looks of a lowered single cab better then the ext cab for some reason. Just personal. I would keep your truck for sure if you dont need the room.

If I was in your situation, I would keep yours because I like the shortcab look better than the extended cabs. The extended cabs look like the cab is too long, or the bed is too short, whatever. Plus you have the 5.3, which responds to performance mods better than the 4.8 does. But if you don't care about that, then switch trucks. Honestly, I think your truck looks awesome, don't switch :head:

I'm biased, but Regular cabs rule :head:

Plus, if you traded...you wouldn't get that satisfaction of modding your own truck. Nothing beats seeing your stock ride transform into what you like.

I say keep your truck I like the new front ends better now that I have an 03 reg cab, I agree with humanzoom make your own truck what it is also and not just buy one that is customized already
