It's RED, you trying to copy me there ZZ, LOL. How hard would it be to turn a long bed into a short bed? Seems like a short bed would be a bit more sporty. Either way though, you've got something to play with. Congrats.

sweet ride and a great start
I personally like the look of the shortbed but the longbed can give more usability and more ability to move weight further behind the rear tires for traction

This would be a perfect candidate for a Blazer Tank in the back of the truck. Plenty of room to mount it and it'd transfer the weight over the rear wheels for more traction.

I think I will replace the fuel cell that is already in the bed. I am sure Shakey is going to keep it, cause I know I would... lol!

You do know that you can get fuel cells with 0-90 ohm sending units in em' that'll work with your fuel gauge, right? I'd get one of those and mount it under the bed in the Blazer position in the back then cut a port in the bed for access and install a trap door. If it's done right it'll look good and give you your bed back so you can haul stuff if you need to.

Sorry guys but for a truck that I am really going to drive I think fuel cells are a PITA. I dont like the idea of reaching over the bed and worrying about cleaning out a dirt trap every time I go to fill up. To each his own but I have known several people who have had them that said "never again". A drag truck, a truck I only drive to cruise ins, or something like that maybe but not for a DD.

this is true
for a DD it is a novelty that would wear off quickly and become a PITA
