    OK,
    I love my truck but the bed at times is too short. Is it possible or stupid to think this can be done? I guess if the wheelbase is different it would not be possible.

    the only way i can think of doing this is either take it from the back and sheet metal in how ever much you wanted extend the frame and weld the tailgate assembly back on. or do it from the front and trim a whole shit load from the wheel wells to get them to slide back

    This is a major undertaking and $$$... full-on custom. If it's a must for you, just trade in your truck.

    There are a hand full of custom shops that can do that, theres a company that makes the Dodge mega cab to a long bed, seen some of there stuff its just frame rail extensions and of course drive train, lines etc but yeah BIG BUCKS!
