Luckily we were able to get our hands on a complete rolling chassis for an '06 Dodge Mega cab that was headed for the crusher, and when we started measuring and examining the differences between the Jeep and the Dodge frame, we realized that the truck chassis could be shortened fairly easily. It already has big axles under it and all the proper mounts for the Cummins engine. Not to mention that this frame was engineered from the start for the torque the Cummins will produce. In the end we removed a 4-foot section of the 2 3/8 x 7 1/2 framerail from the center.
