my thought was making the older sedan a 4x4
it's a lwb truck, so it might not be too bad shortening it
if this was the case then all the difference could be taken out of the long bed section?
in other words shorten the rear drive shaft and the frame in front of rear axle mounts the needed 12"?
then l would need to box that portion of the frame or the whole thing?
how much will the loss of drive shaft length affect the geometry of the rear drive train?
some serious rookie questions huh?
