got line on a decent crewcab to swap over to my regular cab longbox  [cheers] 
other than the need for a crossmember for the rear cab mounts what else am I looking at to bolt this bitch onto my frame?:dontknow:
still haven't decided if I'm gonna make tiny little shortbox for it or just mount a toolbox back there, I also plan on hacking the frame off at the shackle mounts

heres a pic of my buds truck that we built you have to run a blazer tank in the back and cut the floor in the crew cab in order for the cab to sit flush on the frame.

Here is mine, work in progress.
I cut the center crossmember out to drop the cab and if you dont use the saddle tanks it will fit.

It's a lot eaqsier to take the original crew frame and move the rear axle forward. I've done it in the ford world, both succecfull and otherwise.
