I just bought a 1956 ford F 250. The cab and front clip are in excellent condition, but the bed needs replaced. Would like to make a short bed truck. Has anyone ever done this? The cutting and welding doesn't scare me, but I'm not sure where to cut and how much.

Although this link is chevy, its all the same in the end, best place to shorten the frame is under the cab..here`s the link.  http://www.sporttruck.com/techarticles/0703st_1971_chevrolet_c20_shortbed_conversion/index.html
