Right at 6", I wanted some space between, to weld the inner sleeve to the actual frame. I ended up with about 6 1/4" stretch, after the dust settled, I thought I would lose a little more material than I did due to grinding, and saw / cutting wheel kerfs.

I'll take a look, not all of it was usable due to the slight bends in the frame. I'll see how much straight section I have.

Kyle I have a section of frame that's straight and long enough. You'll just have to cut off a body mount and drill out a couple nutserts that held on the skid. Let me know if you want it.

My father came to visit so I took him for a little trip to coyote canyon and did some offroading.

We ended the trip at the falls


He's still amazed at how capable jeeps are

I've grown to hate the location of my winch control box and now I'm planning on moving it and doing an incab switch system. I may try to get this done this weekend.

I made my in-cab switch with 100% radio shack parts for $30, including the actual wire. It came out good too....
