I'm stock floor body dropping my bagged 80 luv and it's a long bed and I was wondering if I could just section the front part out or is it longer in front of the wheel and behind the wheel ? Thanks

Usually more work then it's worth. If you do a complete back half then maybe, if you get a short bed bed.

I'm doing a complete custom back half on the truck to the 102.4 wheel base and it's impossible to find a bed in ohio that's clean lol so I was just goin to shorten this bed if it was just a matter of sectioning out a piece of the front

Yes, the longer (longer than the short bed) part of a long bed is between the front of the bed and the rear axle. They are the same behind the axle.
Now that I say that, I have never measured them. I'm just going off of how it looks to me.

Yeah that's what I thought but the wheel base is 15.5 inches different but the short bed is 6ft and the long bed is 7.5 ft which is 18 inches different

The longbed is longer in front and in back of the wheel wells,2 inches longer in the rear and 15 inches longer in front.
