unless you never plan on selling your truck, except to a HS kid, i wouldn't do it

it absolutely KILLS your resale value

eh, how big of a loss do you think it would be on a 98 dakota that i bought for $4900. i would definitely never cut into a new truck.

if it is what you want and you dont care about resale value then go for it.

That it could.
But with proper planning and saving the cut pieces, you can install it back to near factory status.

Some tack welds, some grinding, some seam sealer and paint and your good to go.
And it will help to make a panel for the rear wall to cover that up. I bet 90% of the buyers(or more) would never look.

exactly my thinking, but i was told that if i did not alert the buyer i could be sued for fraud. but, for example, how is cutting the back out that much different from installing an aftermarket sunroof.

Sunroof's are popular and not seen as tearing the car up.
