Are you going to put the rear box back on it afterwards?
what are you using to add to the Frame, and where are you gonna cut the frame?
Are you getting longer to add a dual case setup or just to add some stability to it?
keep the pics and description comming, I wanna see how this pans out for you. :D

you are going to put the tub back on? I'm just trying to figure your rationale on the cut and splice times 2 you are doing. What are you doing about the outward bend of the frame in the section where you cut? it looks like you cut out the gusseted piece of frame where it starts its outward bend, reasoning for the gusset.

I just cut mine at the rear frame crossmember. Buttweld ext, then gusset them. I can't see doing two buttwelds and the gusseting them both. I am trying to extend the frame without it looking like frame extensions....

i didnt cut any gussets but i wanted it cut in front to give me more room under the body. with the extra room im recessing a tool box under the floor.if it was cut at the end i wouldnt be able to get my box in it.you know all that stuff that takes up room in the back and makes the back seat crouded,will all be under the floor now.sounds kinda strange but you got to bear with me and youll see....
