D is doing something more like building a full tubular chassis based on coil-sprung ranger suspension.
There was a thread on this once quite some time ago, and if I remember correctly just about everything is different between the torsion bar frame and the coil spring frame, including many of the crossmembers and such that you probably don't want to be tampering with.
Have you considered a frame swap? You could do some pretty sweet **** with just a rolling chassis before swapping your front clip, cab, and bed onto the frame. It'd be much easier to do your c-notch, bags, and suspension without so much sheetmetal in the way. You could sell your t-bar frame afterwards to help recoup some cash.
