Re: Need to shorten a frame
I don't know what the Wagoneer frame is like, but heres how to shorten/lengthen a boxed frame.
Cut your chunk out so that the ends are at the same angle. Make sure you don't cut it square, put some angle in it to increase the edge length.
Find a peice of box channel that will fit into the inside of the frame rails. Drill holes through the frame where the sleeve will be so that you can put in rosset welds.
Slid the sleeve in, slide the frame on, weld the rossets and the frame meetings points.
Baste for an hour, cool and serve. Satisfies several!
