Any good fab shop should be able to shorten your frame to accept a short box. Then you need a new drive shaft, shorten the exhaust, the brake line and parking brake cable and you should be good to go.

I can't remember who it was but there was a company out there doing those exact conversions. I'd love to have one as a toy.

Halla's performance built a few. I got quotes for $1000-$2000 just to cut and weld the frame. You will also need a short bed fuel tank. I am about to cut mine this week. Got a welder to come out to weld it charging $225. Most expensive thing I have bought so far was the bed at $800.
