[Q] What's the difference between the Extended Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab?
[A] Below are some basic images of the different cab styles. Please click on the following link for more images and descriptions of the different cab styles: Pickup Truck Cab Styles (PDF)
On Extended Cabs, you have to first open the front door to open the back door. The front door opens the opposite direction of the back door. These doors may also be called 'suicide doors'.
Crew Cabs have 4 full doors that all open the same direction, like car doors. All 4 handles are on the outside of the truck. Visually, the front and back doors are approximately the same width across. In 2014 models, the 4th character of the VIN number is "U". In 2015 models, the 10th character of the VIN number is "F". In the 2014-2015 New Body Style Crew Cabs, measuring under the back door handle, the back door of this truck measures 40" wide.
Double Cabs were first released in 2014. Double cabs have 4 full doors that all open the same direction, like car doors. Measuring under the back door handle, the back door of this truck measures 30-1/2" wide. In 2014 models, the 4th character of the VIN number is "V". In 2015 models, the 10th character of the VIN number is "Z".
[Q] On the '07 Chevy Extended Cab, how can I tell the difference between the 'Classic' or 'New Body Style'?
[A] There are a couple ways to tell the difference between the two cab styles.
On the Classic, the windows in the back doors 'pop' open. The back doors open 3/4 of the way.
On the New Body Style, the windows in the back doors 'roll' up and down. The back doors open all the way and almost touch the truck bed.
[Q] On the '07 Chevy Crew Cab, how can I tell the difference between the 'Classic' or 'New Body Style'?
[A] You can tell the difference between the two by looking at how the rear seats function.
On the Classic, the bottom part of the seat folds forward towards the front of the cab. The back part of the seat then folds all the way forward and down to create a flat floor.
On the New Body Style, the bottom of the seat lifts up towards the back of the cab.
[Q] I have a GMC Sierra Denali. Will the DU-HA work in my truck?
[A] Yes, the DU-HA will fit both GMC Sierra Denali Crew Cabs and Extended Cabs. The Denali package doesn't affect the functionality of the seats at all. Also, any of the trim packages (WT, LT, LTZ, etc.) offered by Chevrolet and GMC will not affect the fitment.
[Q] I have a Classic Style Chevy extended cab. Can you remove the jack without removing the DU-HA?
[A] You can, but it’s easier to just loosen the straps (attached to the seat belt brackets) and slide the DU-HA out before trying to access the jack.
[Q] The seat in my extended cab doesn’t want to come down all the way, what should I do?
[A] Check to make sure that both the DU-HA and the gun rack/organizers are facing the correct direction (slots facing back/high sides forward).
On the back rest of the seat, behind each head rest and down a few inches, there are two brackets, each containing a rubber grommet. Lube these brackets using WD-40 or another form of spray lubricant. (Bottom seat must flipped up to access these brackets.)
[Q] Do you plan on making a DU-HA for Chevy Avalanche Trucks?
[A] We do plan on making one in the future. We will post it on our coming soon page when it is in the drawing stages.
[Q] I have a Chevy extended cab with Husky liners under the backseat...Will the DU-HA slide around if it sits on top of them?
[A] No. The DU-HA will not slide around. The DU-HA is strapped to the seat belt brackets to keep it from sliding around.
