    I'm thinking of trimming the bottom of the body. From wheel to wheel under the door, and welding in a slider. I've done a search for pics, but can't seem to find any. Any help that can given would be appreciated.

    I'm going for style and function, not just getting bigger meats on it. I'm going to go full length to begin with. If I decide to trim the wheel wells, I'll cut the rocker down at that point.
