Here is the deal I have an 1983 J-10 Front cab on an 1979 J-10 Quadratrac chassis. Good bodies are hard to come buy in NC and so I got an 1983 J-10 shortbed with a great body but with a busted Selectrac Dana 44 and "Mickey Mouse" wiring and tired interior. Ok so I got a 1979 J-10 with a Quadratrac lowrange case and solid drivetrain for $150.00 (Thats not a deal thats a steal). But a Big old oak tree crushed the cab and the bed has no hope. It's a Longbed.
With the story out of the way can I have some help on ideas with the bed. I see maybe lengthen
the short box but thats $$$ in panels and more at the body shop. Can I shorten the frame on a frame jig?? If so were.
Also an other ideas would be great.
Thanks for all the great advice in the past and I know that someone will help me greatly now.
