My brother came over today, pulled the bed off.
So from what I've read here, & what your saying, is in order to slide it in between the frame rails, the rear cross member needs to be relocated further back, & 1 &1/2" inches has to be trimmed from the frame rails.
Another option I'm considering is the 59-60 car gas tank, & cut down the fuel neck.
Would either install result in about the same ground clearance?
