Here is a few shots of the box that was cannelled severely and was shortened 19"...I went with an expanded metal floor with a plazma cut rat rod cross so you could still see the chassis detail...the tank will be painted army drab green with the words RAT POISON stenciled on it in army artwork..the rear bumper is something I made as a trailer hitch reciever plug....ya it has a hitch...

Okay, here is the chop...5 1/2" ..mostly welded from the inside so I wouldn't have to grind and disturb the pantina on the body...I also saved all the carriage head bolts on the back of the cab and will reinstall them once I put in the new wood suports...so 4" channel and a 5 1/2" chop...I'm 5'8" and still have lots of head room and can see out really well...I sent the windshield frame to the glass shop to get the glass fitted and have the rear frame ready to go as well...I will also put sideglass in also
