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

my long bed it shot, I found a mint shortbed for nothing, only thing its a flareside bed but it is nice. My dad welds for the railroad so we can definitally do it, I just want to do it right the first time.

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

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

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

noo.. just posting a pic i saw.. most people use a notch in the frame.

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