Call a local heavy truck wrecker and buy a chunk of used frame.

That was the plan for the additional length but what about some stiffening rails that would get welded into the outer or main rails?

Ask at a local truck wrecker.... There are thousands of double frame trucks on the road, so they should be in the wrecking yards too.....

We are melding two trucks into one, so we got 'the nickel tour' of the frame department at Trisand Heavy Truck Repair in Eugene Oregon.

They use specialty C-frame channels engineered for frame lengthening.
Each is designed for the specific dimensions and bend radius of each vehicle.

A mile away is Anderson Brothers Heavy Truck dismantling.
My hobby is walking wrecking yards, and I can confirm the variations in angle, size, and bend styles.
