But good luck.
I am not planning on using much of the original UniBody strength...rather to rely on the cage for much of the strength (think unibody tied into a frame vs. the other way around). I do plan on significant cutting and would like to remove as much of the "frame" as possible for clearance. I will most likely only use a portion of the floor, all of the side and top...and the rest fabricated.

I will do that...lots of planning to do in the meantime. Put an '08 2500 together today and thinking those control arms may not be to bad...hmmm. Plenty of scheming to go around.
