If anyone would like to see some pics on how they did it let me know. I was told from every RV dealer around that it couldn't be done. I'm not one to give up so I called Lippert and they gave me the 411 on how to do it. I then found the best welder/fabricator in town and one day later this is what I got.

Pretty cool until it flips... Raising the center of gravity on one of these is risky.

Center of gravity has been raised, but you have to remember my truck is lifted as well to off-set this. Lippert who builds roughly 90% off all frames for RV's are the ones who told me that if I do this you'll need to do the following. Then they sent me what all needed to be done. The frame is braised more than a tank, it's safe don't worry and it's still under the 13'6 height limit...
