    I done the exact same thing to mine... I fully understand why you are doing it. The tool body was of no use to me. I did find a friend who wanted to adapt the utility body to a trailer of some sort. I have not regretted converting my truck one bit. I wish that I had a "before" pic but here is my M1031 in M1028A1 format...

    I as well would like some parts I would like all the controls for the PTO off the engine for my 1031. so maybe think about selling what you can to fund buying and fixing a regular bed. what I need is all of the stuff that goes with the PTO.

    I think this might be the route I'm going to go. I did find a perfect swap but it's 3600 miles round trip from me. The M1031 needs tires really bad and it won't make the trip without them. The first step in that process would be to add a lift but I need to move the box to get to the rear shackles. And then there's the week of travel to get there and back. Shipping quote for my box was $1800 alone. I just can't seem to make it work out where it's reasonable for all parties.

    I'm going to be grabbing some more pictures later today and I'm trying to figure out how to be able to post to the classifieds after becoming a premium member.

    It's been slow going due to work but here's the current view.

    I'm still working on getting parts out and thinking of the next steps.

    I have several paths. Might be blasting the paint off for body work or suspension and tires to still drive it around. The current tires are so old that I'm getting some death wobble when the pressure drops on them.
