    So I bought a Crew Cab that has been shortend to use a shortbed.

    Here are pictures of the frame welds.

    Thoughts? Should I do anything else to the frame?

    This truck was apparently a tow rig with a superchared 454 in it and a gooseneck and it survived that.

    Passenger Side.

    Is there any plates on the outside? I would fishplate the inside if the bed was off and you had easy access. would like to see picks of the truck, sounds cool.

    There is no plate on the back side.

    I can take it apart and fishplate it. I have lots of work to do on the truck anyway. Here is a quick picture.

    That looks cool. I like the crew with the short bed. If you got work to do on it anyway, I would plate it.

    I'm sure this truck is going to take plenty of welding anyway:D
