Drag truck beds

If anyone would care to share some pics of how you cut the bed and reinforced it on a second gen I would greatly appreciate it. Just trying to get ideas

When I was planning mine, a lightweight 1/2" square tube frame going from inside the overhang at the top to the "rocker" area in a few places seemed easy enough.
I wanted mine to slide in from the side and pin so I could also use that method to hang them on my wall for storage while working.

Hopefully that is as vague and confusing as possible

It's still in the concept phase. I've since moved on to a 70s ford

Most I've seen leave about a foot in the front, and a foot in the back, +/- a few inches, some add a piece of square tubing at each end to keep the bedsides from flopping around if they don't leave much at the ends..

I had considered this before, but since I'm 2wd, I'd be better off moving as many parts off the front as possible and trying to relocate them as far back as I can. Being there's only so much I can take off the front, I'll have to shorten the wheel base and add ballists as needed to get as close to 50/50 as I can.

4x4 trucks don't really have the need for weight transfer, so ditching as much weight as possible is always a good idea.

Ditch that spare tire and 35 gallon tank if you want to shed even more weight.

Cut out the floor and wheel wells cause of slicks and clearance still need to do the inner besides but everything was pretty sturdy tell I cut the wheel wells up a little bit for clearance than I had to add some support bars to the lower bedsides by the wheel well 2 wheel drive so I moved as much to the back as possible with the time and stuff I had at the time of doing it

How are you guys securing the bed to the frame when cutting out the floor? Looks like just the front and rear mounting points and you lose the rest?
