    was lookin under my 74 thinking of nerf bar installation, when i saw that the frame is blocked by the box lookin thing(cab support?) can i just cut this thing out or notch it or something, for a straight shot to the side of the frame?

    Don't mess with the box. Messing with the box is bad. Rust in the box is bad. Messing with the box makes the doors not close correctly. Makes the roof not fit. Makes the windshield fall on you if you have the top off. That box is all the body strength from the fire wall to the bed area.
    See my site link is below. It has how bad it can be when the box rusts out.
