why would i have to cut the frame?

a guy in Vernon has a Bronco with a Reg cab on it. To put a Super Cab on, you'd have to cut out wheel wells on the super cab for the rear tires. You'd only have about a 2' long box or deck but would look cool.
I may part out my '80 super cab, need a cab?

Too much work ...
Buddy put a Bronco II body on a full size bronco frame all you have to do is put in new body mounts as needed and some fender flares . The nice thing about this is your body doesn't get touched when your off road . 5018
The tires are 35X14.50 15 and no lift [cheers]
