boxed frame.?

Well I had to go back in this post to remember/see what you are building... Like you say, you are not going for max performance and look how many years that frame has held up so far... If you are not worried about a bit of twist in the frame when driving in and out of driveways and such... Then boxing is not going to help you all that much, twisting of the frame can cause the doors to pop open and body/hood panels can slip around and mess with paint... Plus when you step on thew running boards, the frame may twist again... If you use a good cross Member, kinda like the factory used, you should be OK... Just some things to think about.
