While most pickups are designed primarily for maximizing the amount of stuff they can fit into the bed and cab, there’s something to be said about the style of a single cab / short bed combo. Unfortunately, the GMC Sierra isn’t sold in a short cab / short bed configuration here in the U.S., but that didn’t stop one group of intrepid customizers from building one for themselves.
Revealed in a recent YouTube video post by user TheBulletWS6, the custom 2020 GMC Sierra single cab short bed conversion looks surprisingly clean. There are no obvious imperfections in the bodywork, cleanly mating the two-door cabin to a much shorter bed section.
Up front, we see a familiar fascia, with a blacked-out grille section and black GMC badging set between a set of C-shaped head lamps. The typical chrome trim is gone, replaced by a body-colored surround for the grille and complimentary black bits.
The profile reveals the custom body style in dramatic fashion. The proportions of this 2020 GMC Sierra single cab short bed are unlike anything in GMC’s U.S. lineup, with the tall, upright panels shortened down to create a compact look. The design is exaggerated further by large, multi-spoke custom wheels, which fill the wheel wells generously thanks to their plus-sized dimensions.
The rollers are finished in gold, providing an offset for the gray, glossy body panels and chrome-free aesthetic. A two-tone paint emphasizes the cab section with a lighter shade of gray, and the whole thing was lowered as well, adding an extra dash of sportiness to the equation.
Finally, the rear end rocks the usual bumper step-ups and a gray GMC badge high on the tailgate, with the bumper once again matched to the body in terms of color and finish.
All told, this custom GMC Sierra looks like it took quite a bit of work to pull off. Check it out in the video above, where it struts its stuff in Texas and even does a little burnout at the end.
