Re: questions on shortening the wheel base
You could cut/weld the frame if you reinforced it with some steel bolted onto the outside, but a better plan would be to move the spring hangers forward on the frame up to the cab, then just chop whatever is left of the frame behind the leaf springs. I've seen this done with a custom flatbed, but if you're planning to reuse the factory bed chopped down you'll have to move the bed mounts around if you do it this way. That, however, would be easier (and more sound) than welding the frame back together, in my opinion [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
