    If you have the time, money, place to do it.
    If the frame, engine, tranny are good.
    If you get a good price.
    Sure.

    As for the convertible idea, I did that to a Chevy LUV with a 350. Fun stuff. Hard top convertible. Cut it right the first time, cap the cuts with flanges to close off gaps, add weather strip to both sides and add snap clamps. Take the top off in good weather, put it back on in bad weather (or parking for long periods or near birds).

    There sure is. Maybe when I get the truck I'll cut the old cab off like a convertible. Just so I can take a picture in it.
