I built one of those about 3 years ago. It definitely worked better than the bronco body for the tight trails i run here. I just made a little flat bed and mounted the spare and gas tank to it. I also moved the front cab mounts back. I cut off the original towers and frame mounts, and used 4" square tubing positioned about a foot rearward. I beefed up the floor in this area and used stock rubber mounts. This mod made it pssible to run 36's with no lift and no rubbing. I did cut out the fenders tho. That was a fun little truck, mostly because i only had about $1000 into it
there is only one big difference on mounting up the pickup cab to a bronco frame. The rear body mounts on the bronco are on the outside of the frame while on the f-150 they are on the inside of the frame. By putting 3" lift blocks on all the mounts I was able to put 2x4 rectangular tubing over the mounts and drill new holes for the cab mounts. The bronco mounts are also lower than the f-150 mounts so it took another set of 3" lift blocks to get the cab set on the 2x4 tubing.
I have more pictures on my superford website.
