Hello all,
  I know use of an S-10 frame has been discussed on this listserv before, but 
I'm not sure when or what the opinion was. So, can anyone tell me their 
experience with getting one of the kits to put an AD cab on an S-10 frame. I've 
gone to the kit web site, but I'm interested in the experience any of you have 
had. I already have a short bed 1988 S-10, but have been unable to find an 
affordable long-bed frame.  All the long-bed S-10s I've found are at full price 
for a truck in good shape. What do you think of putting the 1951 cab on a 
short-bed initially, and then moving it to a long-bed when I can find one at a 
reasonable price? I know that will mean a short bed, but I could use a flat 
woody bed for a while.
  I've not made any progress on my AD because I was in a bad accident in 
January of this year. As I slowed our car (2003 VW Jetta Diesel) for my 
driveway I was hit from behind by an SUV traveling at 70 mph. Among things, 
like a ruined car (that got 50 mpg), I got to experience traumatic brain injury 
that kept me in the hospital for about 3 months. I still cannot go back to work 
and it has now been 6 months. Oh Well!! At least I am still alive.
