long wheelbase (my version)

Hi all,
Thought you might like to see my long wheelbase conversion.
I'll try to post some pics.
This one is a picture of the donor sammy frame section installed with inner sleeve and butt and button hole welds.
I was an idiot and didn't get any pictures of it cut in two.

This is the outer sleeve made from a chunk of tracker frame.

Re: long wheelbase (my version)

X member welded in. The plan is to use a section of floor from the donor sammy to fill in the floor gap and make a total set of 8 body mounting points through here. Then it will be covered with a section from the bed floor. Rocker sections will fill the lower outer gap and door panels will be used for the outer-upper quarters. Anyone have a good set of body mount grommets and washers? Oh yeah, the extra spring hangar brackets will have to go.

Re: long wheelbase (my version)

Last pic. This one was taken before the X member was in with the rear body sitting on. The body is going to be a slow process. (Building my daughter a big playhouse inside the shop. Gonna drag it outside in the spring.)After the body, then suspension, axles, BIG tires, roll cage, gears, Yada Yada. I will post pics someday when and if I get it done. Any suggestions or comments are welcome.

Re: long wheelbase (my version)

Forgot.
I think it was 15 inches of frame extension or so. 95 inch wheelbase. Could be easily punched out to 100 if desired.
I'm gonna try it at 95.
