If you're considering making a 2 seater into a 4 seater that's been done a few times but lengthening the chassis would be the most difficult way to accomplish that. Most folks just ad a "halo" bar to the back of the roof for head protection and leave the chassis and WB alone.

I dont want to cut my frame off in the back.
So adding 4" to 6" in the seating area would help.

Before i cut my old cage. My rig was very balanced and worked. Just wanted a 4 seater and new look. On this note im not moving the motor back either.

I squeezed a bench seat in the back of mine regular chassis...its not comfy for adults, but works just fine for kids.

I think i found a spot on the chassis i can cut and sleeve and add 4" to 6" to the length.

Front Range's ftoy is a 2 seater that he extended the roof and added seating for 2 (short) adults. Might be an idea.

Not really a F-toy but might give you ideas. It's a stock length '94 frame.
