Tubbing an S-10

I built my pro street S-10 at home in my garage.I am running leaf springs with lakewood slapper bars. I cut the frame off between the cab and the front bed mount,then I narrowed the rear frame section about 10" I just sectioned the stock crossmembers and welded them back together. I connected the narrowed rear section to the stock front section with 2x4 steel tube. I kicked the rear section up about 4" at the juncture by angling the tubing up and in.I had to "channel" or cut the floor loose in the whole bed and drop the bed to match up with the cab.this let the truck sit real low and still have suspension travel.I am running 31x18.5 tires on 15x14 centerline wheels.I will try to get pictures,but we have 12" of snow right now and the truck is parked. This truck is built as a daily driver,built at home and built on a budget.
