    resemble its original form (Jeep bodies look like a Jeep)

    So by this section in the rules, the CENTER can not be touched at all! However, either end maybe dovetailed. AS long as you keep the original form intact.

      it reads by those rules that the body must be full width. how do you see that dove tailing is allowed. It doesn't read that way to me.

        Doesn't look like it is allowed to me either!

          My interpetation on this is that you cannot cut the body down the middle, take 2 inches out and then fuse it back together. That is narrowing the full width. Dovetailing is only narrowing the back or front...

            all i wanted to do was narrow the rear alittle because my tires rub the bed of my chevy and the sides are cut the hole way off just like the rear the rear is just flat no bed sides/tailgate at all. (ive seen it done for other comp trucks) (thats why i need to buy that chevy body off of you john)

                      The intent, which never got put into the rules, is that the CAB has to remain orginal width. You can dovetail. This is unclear in the rules, and will be brought up for clarification.

                      Why dont you just flat cut the bed area, like my F650 body was? That looks better than a dovetail job.

                        it already is. my tires still run the body front and rear.

                          Sounds like you way too much flex then. I would try to limit flex before dovetailing a body.

                            i personally think dovetailing it would look better than cutting it straight.

                            the rule deffiinitaly needs re worded if dovetailing is allowed!
