cutting a LWB to a SWB, how to??
 
Hey all, I was really hoping someone, anyone could please show me and tell me how to correctly cut a 67' long bed box into a shortbed box. I want to do it with as little hacking as possible. I have a general idea of doing it but was hoping people could give correct demensions and show some pictures of how they did it. PLEASE. Thank you.

Sweet thanks. I have a swb frame so I guess really what I was looking for is cutting the longbed box down to a shortbed box.
