Customizers Build 2020 GMC Sierra Single Cab Short Bed: Video18
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.

This looks really good. It wouldn’t sell many units if built, but nice.
I like RCSB trucks, but realistically it would be a very small percentage of sales.
Which is why GM will not bring this version back to the US, majority customers here favor primarily the Crew Cab models.
Sick! Want to see a single cab short bed off-road AT4/trailboss too.
Is this the 5 3/4 ft bed like the crew cab?
I get not having them available initially as production was ramping up, but seriously GM, this is one of the best looking combos AND will help get younger buyers afford these trucks….
Since they are already building these. and shipping them off to the Middle East, I don’t see why they aren’t at least allowing them to be offered as an order only option.
We have a huge custom vehicle aftermarket that will fill the needs of true automotive individuals. Whether GM does this or not people can have better-individualized vehicles done from custom shops. I’ve bought specialty cars and trucks from GM that were supposed to be customized. I still did my thing to them.
Awesome Build. Is there a video or pics of the work completes?
I once had a neighbor that was a very good body/paint man. His wife once asked for a car and being the ingenious fabricator he was…and not wanting to spend the money for a new one…he cut two wrecked cars in two and grafted them together approximately just behind the B pillar. When finished you couldn’t see any evidence of his work. Awesome. That’s what this looks like happened. It’s a stunning exercise. Cudos to the builder.
Couldn’t they have just imported a regular cab short bed version from the middle east and then just customized that?
Seems like it would have been easier.
And how I miss RCSB sport trucks. 🙁
This is NOT a S10 pickup. It is a blazer with the back top off.
Gmc decided to stop making the least desirable cab/body combo but these guys said NO, we are going to make our own useless pickup, cant haul squat (people or cargo) what a waste.
They didn’t stop making it. They just don’t sell it in the US.
I love single cab short box 4×4. I don’t need a passenger truck. Maybe some better colors ,besides white,gray, black,maroon ppl
Nice truck rendition; terrible video.
GM should look into it since many past comments on this forum there is a desire for regular cab short bed truck. From days past many owners would put a lift on it, similar look to the old Chevy Blazer stance, for coolness and off road use. Actually, it could be an answer for the Bronco crowd with about 160,000 preorders. The EV Hummer seems to be gearing up for the off roaders but it is priced too high for that younger off road crowd.
