need info on cutting frame down...

I bought a regular cab, long bed that has a short bed on it, frame needs to be cut down.

anyone know how much gets cut, im gonna set them on the frame and mark it but i wanted to get a rough idea, i think it is 18 inches, that sound correct? anyone done this and have pictures?

also, can i get a few pictures of 4 links? need to make this 2wd hook up.


Thanks all

Best advice I have seen on here "If you cant afford to build it right you certainly cant afford to build it twice"

Here is a link to some picks of my drag truck project. I had the frame cut down to be a short bed.

Re: need info on cutting frame down...

i did, he e mailed me a few pictures, i got a little better idea, so far i know cut is 16" and you start right behind the bed bolts, and make the cuts opposite of each otherr.
