Re: Bought C3500 basket case

Bobbed is a term used for shortening the tail end. He would have taken 6" off plus or minus. The axle would have been moved forward that much to give the 127" wheelbase needed to mount the bed

Yes, you pull the axle shafts to remove the drums. Full-floating rear. The drums are mounted on spindles like on front.
