    Start with the longer truck. Adding a fuel tank is easier than extending the wheelbase, and you wont have to splice the frame in a high stress area.

    How long do you think we can add on to a m927 and still have a nice offroad rig? I am trying to get to a 26-28' bed with a quad cab. We were looking at a Dynamax DX3 at almost 40' so I figured if I could stay under 40 with 6x6 it should still be pretty functional offroad but this is all new territory for me. The plan is to have about 3 feet off the tail end that will angle up so I was thinking maybe end up with 37'-38' total frame length.

    I know of a top-notch custom fab shop that might take it on- he's located in Maryland though....but does everything from military black box jobs to oil field custom work- anyone- he drives a deuce himself...

    Add 6 or so feet and add another axle or whole axle set.

    Making it a 8x8? Would be cool. Wonder how that would do on road?
