Awesome write up. How was the frame extension done? Did you just have a piece welded in or was the frame doubled up at the welds? Thanks for all the info and pictures.

Thank you. So far so good with the frame. I owe the forum an update and will do so shortly. The frame was butt welded on a 45 where it was butted together and then has a diamond shape piece of material welded to the outside covering the seam and I sleeved the inside with another piece of channel that goes 3ft in front and back of the weld. This piece is bolted in. If I could do it again I would have just bought new frame and double framed the hole thing. I have no problems with it this way, but cost wise it was only about 2k less than new complete double frame. Also having a strong box u bolted to the frame adds a lot of strength.

Thanks Steve
