    what do youguys think of a truck cab on a blazer frame with either a flatbed, or a custom extra shortwide.... Do you think that would give more flex since the cab and bed arent connected or what? is it worth it?

    I have seen one done with a cut down short box (you could run a flatbed until the box was made). It was a great looking truck. But if you are going to beat it then I wouldnt waste time doing all the body work on a shortbed.

    Again I can set you up with a cheap rustfree cab if you want it...

    i like the idea of putting a shorter short bed on it, but i am going to wheel it, and body work uis something i need to learn how to do and i dont think it would be that tough, i just wouldnt know where to start in building a short bed like that, im going to look into it though

    A guy I use to work with took a long bed 73 3/4 ton and after everything was said and done and the dust settled it is now 1" shorter then a blazer. he took 26" out of the bed and put it all back together. he wheels the snot out of it but the paint still turned out cool, forest service green,LOL
