I'm excited to see this!

You said "Stretched Frame" ... I thought the frame had to be shortened.

I think stretched is right if a cargo box behind the cab is planned.

Added a Miller 350P with XR Aluma gun to the shop this week. Not only for this project, but I'm getting a 5:1 ratio on clients wanting aluminum products vs. steel these days. Playing in the rocks will always be a dream for most, but the expedition and family camping will always out weigh that dream by far.

New tools are fun......... (10K Challenger LE-10 lift, 8' hyd box/pan brake and a good used CNC lathe are on the way as well) I'm working on a deal on a CNC mandrel bender as well.
