wood gone in p/u box

I bought a 1965 G.M.C p/u box 8' long which has been turned into a utility trailer. The box and frame and suspension are in real good shape. Even tge tail lights are good. I am going to clean this up and use it and someday it will go back on a truck . My question is whether some one has removed the old wood (oak I think) floor and replaced with gauge steel. If that is to be done I will have to lower the sides and wheel houses the thickness of the wood that is removed or put 3/4 " spacers on every cross piece with wood under the sides and wheel houses. It might be easier to put wood back in but more expensive and not as durable.
