Re: long bed to short bed conversion

I've seen it done before. Your best bet would be to find another shortbed, and take a lot of measurements. You're going to have to move the rear suspension forward, which means a shorter driveshaft will be needed. You may also have to move the fuel tank(s).
Good luck to you.
