    Changing M923 to a M923A1

    Are there many concerns, or is all you basicly have to do is change the 1100x20 tires to the 1400x20 tires and rims. I know you have to flip the rear rims so the inside is facing outside. I know to complete it right, you would have to slide the bed back 3" and change the spare tire holder. But...
