Default '01 quad cab on short bed frame?

I own an '01 quad cab 4x4. I have been thinking about trying to put my cab on a short bed frame, then cutting down the bed to fit to make a "Truggy". Why, you ask? I do a lot of off roading and the shorter wheelbase would be very helpful. I don't do much hauling in the bed and I need a back seat for my kids. Any thoughts appreciated.

Well, when I was a kid my Dad had a Chevy truck cab on a K5 Blazer frame with a home made bed about 3 feet long, it looked goofy as hell but it was fun when we took it on the old logging trails.

Yeah, I just need enough bed to throw in an ice chest, a tent and a few sleeping bags. Oh! and a few gallons of water. I live in Az., can't forget the water.
