    you'd be cheaper and easier selling it to somebody who wants a long wheelbase and then buy a short one, especially if it's a Fleetside like you pictured

    Wouldn’t it be easier to extend the garage a couple of feet? Or maybe a power bulge in the door

    if the truck actually fits within the opening, a roller shutter door will cure it. It looks like it's the top of the tailgate stopping it coming down properly.

    I had a customer buy a car a few years ago and it was a few inches too long for his garage, but, as the rear wall was double brick, he got some inner skin bricks removed to fit round his bonnet and put a lintel in.
