I really liked my JTM.. But as cheap as swingers are now a days, that would be your best and SAFEST bet...

Dahum, 255 bones was the winning bid? I should sell the JTM off my trail bike.

welding the inside corners would not be necessary provided you bevel all your edges and perform a 3 way pass with a TIG welder...

so you just cut the swinger...extended it by 2" and welded the hell outta it with 1/4" flat stock all the while making sure to keep it true and square. That's not to hard sounding. What did you do about brake lines? What size chain did you go with? Is 2" really a huge difference? Thanks

stock brake line is fine with a +2.
there is no way you could give me a stock swinger thats been modified.
as cheap as swingers are getting just buy a used one and be done.
you will love the twin row carrier that they all use and get rid of the stock carrier that we start with
