I've always thought it was easier to just make a side shifter, but a frame chop isn't a bad idea at all. Are you plating it?

yep the inside and outside welded and the inside is plated.I did it this way because it took me way less time to do than making my own side shift which i was going to do untill the other craftsman feel in my lap. and the stock assembly works very nice. i have also gusseted the rear axle for strength. i did the rear gusset after Doc and I have had a few discussions about chassis flex
