pics of cut frames to make a OBS a short bed?

I was wondering on making my truck a shortbed since the bed is bad and I can get a mint short bed cheap? Pics would be helpful as to how and where to cut? Thanks

Just a FYI. the flareside had a LOWER bedsides. This was done because all flaresides came with the fiberglass running board/steps that hung down. Just something to think about

What is your truck? A cclb, eclb, or single cab? No matter what it is it will look awesome with a flareside bed.

Why above the axle, then the front spring perches will have to be moved?
