The front to bag is basic. Unless your planning on it laying out. Then it gets complicated. The rear you will kinda need to worry about bracing when cutting but the front should be fine. What are you planning on doing and maybe we can help a lil more. Do u want to lay full frame? Or jsut want it to go down? If u dont want it to lay frame and are just gonna lay crossmember then u dont need to worry about the rear cuz itll only sit on the tires in the back.

to lay frame u need to either "z" the shit outta the front. or better yet do a yota front clip and or a stock floor bodied frame. pathys are a bitch thats why no one does them. for the rear you will have to rebuild damn near all of your rear floor, tub the doors for wheels. and youll have to devise a link setup to try and keep the back seat if u plan on keeping it.

ya its hard to keep your back seat with out being really creative with the link set up. and bineg your first bag job your definatly picked on of the hardest things to lay frame in. you gotta remember your working with all 4x4 suspension. so basically your converting a 4x4 to a frame laying 2wd. but with out the transfer case and front axles. ice is gonna be building mine over the next few months but hes doing a full custom chassis. but you might be able to get some ideas on how to keep the back seat. the pathys have over a foot of ground clearance too is something u have to think about. thats along way to the ground to get the suspension to work right. with out the "z" or a new clip its jsut not gonna happen
