    Or what about bobbing and chopping off the shackles off the tacoma and having no shackles since there will be basically no overhang past the rear axles?

    It's easier to maneuver a shorter length truck when you wheel.

    It would be interesting to see a regular cab with a dcSB. You'd have to chop the frame, exhaust, etc... and get a shorter drive shaft. But it'd look pretty decent and would have a pretty short wheel base while maintaining a factory look.

    In fact, I think I might PhotoShop it in a little while to see what it might look like.
