*Final note on thisThat is awesome and something I’ll have to remember. A 50’s F-100 is a bucket list vehicle of mine and a never like leaving things alone.
1948-1952 F1 (standard bed) truck bodies ONLY will fit perfectly on a 97-2001 Ford Explorer ONLY
Obviously you have to relocate body mounts and tweak some other details.
But as far as the wheel base = practically identical
