wat do you guys think

So i got a friend that just bought a 96 ex cab 8 foot. I have always wanted a 8 foot, so i was thinkin bout strechin my frame out and making it an 8 foot. i already have the frame half way boxed so it wouldn't be that hard to box it some more. and if i do it im going to do a shakel rev in the rear and the redo the font for about three more inches or so. i can clear 44 now but i want some good wheel well space.

Your truck looks great short, if you want a 8footer, find one and make it a project, from the looks of your truck you seem rather capable.

The short beds are so hard to find. I say leave it and get another truck if you want the 8' bed that bad!
