If all goes well, we can toast to accidental successes.

I'm convinced I'm just too dumb to know that I can't restore this old truck...

Must have missed something. Where did the inserted section come from?

Yup

The original 8" bed is a donor now....BTW the rear flares from the donor will be available and they are not too bad either...just sayin'

little further

few more fotos on the progress...pretty soon the rockers will arrive and , once welded in the cab can come off. and new (to me) doors will be installed.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xgbuel1icn...1404c.jpg?dl=0

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dju1tzrst6...1404a.jpg?dl=0

https://www.dropbox.com/s/h75xvgij8x...1404b.jpg?dl=0

The doors to be removed, will supply the window framing in the rear , stationary glass. and then an OEM slider in the back.

Is the roof skin fabed or grafted from something else?

I found a complete roof then cut out the middle for the 13" extension. There is a slight taper to the roof line..so it worked out pretty well.
The brow and back section of the donor roof are available to anyone that would want it.

Like I said: I wish I had never seen this thread!

I assume you used a donor floor section also?

I wish..... However..floors will be plate steel.....I'm practical and a little "frugal" if possible.

its coming along

The cab extension seems to be the most simple aspect of this project...
The seating and interior detailing are beginning to become difficult......I would love to be in an area that isn't rusted away...I envy you west coasters.......Anyone have a bucket seat from a 2 door FSJ????

interior

Just came back from the bone yard...........found a 2001 Dakota extended cab with a tan interior......I plan to use the complete rear seat set up/ side panels and seat base and possibly the front buckets/console for the interior....
got the whole thing including all the seatbelts and OEM scissor jack that fits in the rear base for $225.............pictures will follow ....keeping my fingers crossed on the front seat base matching up to the GW power seat bases.

and on it goes

The frame hit the floor this week Rebuilding the front D44 and paint.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/zn15d8fv16...71133.jpg?dl=0
you may beable to see that the crossmember with the trans hump is no longer in the factory position..we moved it rearward 12" to accommodate the stretched cab
https://www.dropbox.com/s/c94yqqse2z...71258.jpg?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/62qq91575b...1258a.jpg?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/y4dopiiilz...1258b.jpg?dl=0
Fotos are of the back of a 98 Dakota ..cab and a half.
The interior is a pretty darn close match up (in size)to a J truck that is stretched 12 inches.
This front seat is a direct fit (bolt up) to a FSJ power seat frame...AND it has forward tilt!!
https://www.dropbox.com/s/8pc23ro4kb...1258c.jpg?dl=0
I grabbed the entire interior 40-20-40 front seats and rear seat/storage box/ full surround trim and the OEM jack and full set of seatbelts for $250
