Default Frame stretch

I am looking for a company or person that can stretch the frame on my GMC cabover.

Check with any truck equipment shops in your area. Look for companies that install tanks, dry van boxes, gravel boxes, etc.

2007 Haulmark 3329DS, Freightliner Coronado Chassis, 515hp Detroit, Meritor Freedomline 12speed Autoshift, 10kw Generator, In-motion Satellite.

Also truck collision shops .... you can also inquire with the local towing company as they are always having chassis mods dome.

For our next ExpeditionVehicle, we are melding two frames.
The crewcab fire-truck frame attaches to the front of a two-door cab frame... giving us a mid-engine crewcab with our concept of the ideal wheelbase.

The process is identical to a stretch.
We are getting quotes from heavy-truck shops.
So far, each shop has a stretch in-progress to show us the process.

What is your current rear suspension. Where I live it is usually easiest to buy a cut off and do the stretch with that. You can get air ride and the gears you want for less then 3K
