That is freaking awesome!!!!!! I'll be following that build! I wish our trucks came as a regular cab shortbed!!!!

It's interesting where they cut the frame, looks like they cut it pretty much at mid cab? Is there a section there that is modular for cab length and bed length? (kind of like how AEV replaces the section of the JK frame that determines 2 vs 4 door with their own piece for the crew cab; are Rams similar???)

Theres actually a video they put together about this build. I will find it and post the link. It shows quite well how they shortened the frame. Basically cut the welds where the back half connects to front, slid out the longbed back half and then slid in a shortbed back half, welded it back up. Very slick. Looked factory.

Okay cool, that's what I figured! I didn't know our trucks were set up that way, that makes it a lot easier to build a clean (OEM looking) regular cab shortbed HD than I thought, VERY cool!!!! I look forward to seeing more of that build, looks like it'll be an awesome rig!!!!!!

Not sure of the demand for a 10' bed, but it certainly would corner the market ! :lol: That being said, they could probably use the same frame as the crew cabs for it, so no extra parts or tooling for the frame, just make a new bed. You might be on to something here ? :lol:

If I wanted a regular cab work truck, I would want a 10' or 12' bed like the chassis cabs can get. Talk about a sweet flatbed model!
