Here's a combination chop.
The profile version was done first out of curiosity. I had always liked the older 40's/50's cab-over style trucks and wondered what a modern version might look like. Then a while later I had challenged myself to edit a matching quarter-view image into the same version as the profile.

4dr F250 SuperDuty was edited into 8-passenger COE version maintaining original length and wheelbase. Intended purpose of this version; for larger family use with capability for camper and/or trailer, or transportation for larger work crews. COE cab base could also be configured in several combinations on smaller civilian truck frame for commercial and farm & agricultural applications.

I'm glad you said it's ugly, now I don't have to lol.

Clean chop! Nice work on it!

Would this idea maybe work better if you used something more along the lines of the Chevy 5500 as a base?

Thanks! The cab-over part is the main "what if.." part of the design since they do not make the smaller pickup based COE's anymore and I tried to make the editing as realistic as possible to appear as if actually produced alongside the original.
Once I got the basis of the quarter-view done, it reminded me of a big dragonfly but finished it for the intent anyway. And yes, it might look better with altering another brand's initial styling into a similar version. The passenger areas can be raised to similar height at the forward cab to reduce the stair-step look and in the profile view, I added a roof rack to help this a bit.

I think raising the passenger areas would help a lot, but then you would probably have to raise the box sides as well....

Raising the passenger roof seems to be a common consensus for this chop on other sites as well, but then I foresee it looking more like an oversized van. For this same passenger-based configuration, I would then probably raise the windows and roof up about halfway to the cab roof height with extending the added filler panel above the front wheel back to match, or try a different roof rack that fills the space better. I'm not sure about raising the walls of the bed, but it's just a concept so I'm open to styling suggestions for re-edits and any similar future chops.
This was only my 2nd attempt at editing a quarter-view image as to why I said it was a challenge for me to match the previous profile versus making a different version.
