Thanks for that pic, Jeff. I figured you could do that easily, but wasn't sure if you were paying attention.

A standard TJ is 93.4". So you're talking about a five foot frame stretch, basically.

I dare say not only would a trailer be easier to maneuver, you're so long this thing isn't going to go ANYWHERE off road as soon as there's any kind of up and down. That's going to be one long, vulnerable, driveshaft, too. And again, no turning radius, which while you might be "used to" that in parking lots from some other vehicle, hurts you on the trail even worse...

Not to mention the near-impossibility of building a frame that long and narrow that doesn't bend and oscillate like crazy when hitting bumps in the road.

That's still a little shorter than what he's proposing, but yeah...

Well if that's what he wants to build, there is a bed kit for it:

And we wonder sometimes why AEV limits parts availability to the public.

Talking wheelbase

I decided to see how ridiculous this would look. Wheelbase works out to about 152"
---------------------------
Agreed it is long but still shorter than most quad cabs out there. And they have already been built in other countries.
