Short to long bed conversion
As the title says, short bed to long bed conversion. Can it be done safely? Which would be the better option, getting a long bed rear frame and putting it on my truck, or just adding a section to my frame? I know some guys that could do this for me real easily, they are professional welders. I'm thinking make a "Z" type cut in the frame for more welding surface, then plate both sides of the frame around the weld, with a C channel that fits tight in the frame on all sides, then weld the plates and bolt them. Is that safe? Could i still tow heavy loads with the frame like that without it buckling or breaking?
