Shortening the Bed on a 99Taco.

Any one here had any experience with shortening the bed on 99 taco x-tra cab? I'm thinking about doing it, but want to keep the tailgate, etc.. stock.. maybe just cut the rear and move it in.. Don't know if the frame rails will get in the way though.. Maybe i should just go with a flatbed to raise the bumper clearance issue.

Better departure angle so you wont scrape it as much on extreme angles.

Not possible, the wheel well is closer to the cab on DC beds.

Bobbing takes a lot of skill to make it look stock.

Might wanna consider dove tailing it also for better offroading

It's just the filling and sanding portion to make it look stock.

The actual bob is easy, I been reading up on it and participated in one over the weekend on a 1st gen Pickup.

It does take a lot of skill. I have seen so many bobs that are terrible.Take the time and make it look BA

I have a buddy who has worked in a body shop for many years and to make them look perfect it takes skill. I'm talking show room quality.
