Hey everyone i have a question that some might think it stupid but i really dont know the answer. Can i replace my 6ft bed with an 8ft or would the wheel well not line up because the wheel base is longer?

Just put a flatbed on instead.

The fame is longer between the back of the cab and the rear tire and the longer bed won't line up on a SWB truck. I agree with White Gardens,Just put a flatbed on it.

I'm trying to keep the truck looking stock because it's also a personal truck.so the flat bed would really work
