How's this for a puzzle/teaser?

It bothers me that just forward of the severed frame rails, the only thing that keep the floorpan from folding is the depth of the center tunnel. Have you considered a stress bar from the top of each rail to the firewall?

Yes, those are the few more supports I have to attach. The cab needs to be mounted to get the right measurements. I plan on connecting the firewall to frame and cab.

I'm still thinking about the rearend. I definitely want to get rid of some of the leaf springs. I think I'll run the stock setup at first then decide what to do after I drive it around.
