    Thinkin about hacking the back off my '80sub, welding on a pickup back, and building a kick a$$ flatbed (it's small enough that i could build out of aluminum diamondplate). Low budget requires me to use exsisting body instead of actual crew. Why? I don't know, time for a change maybe and can't afford a hummer. Anybody else done this?

    the roof lines are different and the sub roof is taller than crew cab roof. but i saw a sub with wheel tubs filled and crew cab back grafted on where the doors were and 8 ft box on 1 ton 4x4 frame cut and streched up on 44" boggers in a mag a few years ago it was dark blue almost violet. man was that big
