still waiting for the guy to pick up my axles. so i cant by my front 60 until they are gone.. meaning no work on the front end yet.. so my boredom has led me to deal with the twisted piece of sheet metal i call my bed.. measured it up and taped off the lines to cut.. dovetailiing it about 12 inches... im also looking into bobbing it 4-6 inches to shorten things up out back.. work will continue in the morning.

after doing some reading, im definantly going to bob (only 4-6 inches) it first before i dovetail it.. so tommorow i will start on that.. the plan im thinking is to hack it up, tack the bob together, then hack it up again for the dovetail and tack it all together.. then get 6013 rod for the welder to finish it.

Well actually it sucks your springs are so long. Cause it would of looked good a few inches less, but your rear shackles would be outside the bed...
