The install went well, after I squared the Channels the 90's were about 3/19 out, Scribed reference marks on both rails 14" apart, the made the Cuts cut the Channels and used the scribe marks to keep the same length ! not doing so could end up with a large error! Also marked the floor with the desired wheel base so you check and see where your at!
Great customer service

Very well thought out. The extension is now the strongest part of the frame. Best part is the instructions. I have never seen a better set of instructions for anything. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time...thanks 504

Followed the instructions and was easily able to add the wheelbase distance needed for my project. I'm not the best welder, so I tacked it in place and had a friend who is a professional do the finish welding. This kit will make the frame stronger than original if one has any concerns.
