Since I'm a couple thousand miles too far away to actually work on this, I did some Fawesome MSPAINT body work. Which box bob do you prefer? These are all just a little bit of length change, with the last one being the existing full length. I like the 1st one, but I would also like to keep it long enough to put my YFZ450 or 200EXC in the bed with the gate down. I don't intend to dove the bedsides in, as I don't see any gain on this truck.

3rd one.

you have enough departure angle, give the look of a more stock bed, and less of the look of just all hacked up.

Since I was the only one to disagree on the first one I thought I would give my reasons. OVerall very cool build I like it.

what rear suspension are you running? If you are doing leaf springs, my vote for the box style is whatever style it takes to go far enough back and low enough to cover the shackles, otherwise it will look like shit if you have the bed bobbed higher than the shackles.

#2 looks way too short, so my vote is #3.

I cut the lowers off of my old truck and always wished I wouldn't have done it. Then again, my tires almost fit in the stock wheelwell, so I shouldn't have cut anything.

I also never bobbed the back because I only had about 4" to gain before getting into the shackles as mentioned. If it was linked though.....

The rear end will be four linked.

I'm pretty sure I wont be able to fit my YFZ in it no matter what, so I guess other than aesthetics the length doesn't matter much. #1 and #3, but haven't decided which I like better yet.

Keep in mind that it will have a rear bumper which isn't drawn into the pictures.

I haven't forgotten about this rig or given up. I've just been gone out of state for work to much.

These got dropped off at home today. Should help with clearances and make the front brakes easier to deal with.
