Hey welcome to the board. You should be able to pull it apart at the slipjoint. Might have to heat it with a propane torch a bit. Make sure you leave enough engaged (at least 2" or so) so that it doesn't pull apart going down the road

Anything can be "extended", you just need enough duct tape. Why do you need to extend it? Body Lift? I know there are kits you can buy to fix that, but I thought they came with the lift. You can also buy a whole new one. I know Borgeson makes a "Heavy Duty Steering Shaft" so check out I have also heard of "collapsable" steering shafts. Can't remember who makes them though.
Good Luck,
