Single Cab Shortie Swap
Let me start this off by saying I hope this isn't a topic that has been beat to death, but I could not seem to find anything that answered my question.
I'm looking at swapping a short bed onto my Single cab (lowered not lifted) All the trucks I have seen the frames have been cut behind the cab and shortened 16 inches or so. Being that the frame does not lend itself at all to a frame jig I personally would rather relocate the leaf spring hangers forward and the four rear bed mounts and bumper mounts on the frame are easily fabricated.
Is there something huge I am missing why everybody is chopping their frames in half and having to worry about dog tracking, stress cracks, and cab to bed fitment?
Thanks in advance for any help!
