    Wheelbase is longer on the wagon than the sedan, just thought you should know.

    Same wheel base. It's longer out back though so the frame will need to be cut and extended.

    Some frame discussion here,

    If I had to do it again I would've kept stock dash and not mod the firewall.

    I did find that they were the same wheelbase after scouring Wikipedia for dimensions and I have downloaded some diagrams, but havenít really started comparing measurements. I should only have to extend the tail end of the frame for support and bumper purposes, right? If so, do you recall there being enough similarities between the frames to use the wagon frame for this purpose? I appreciate the heads up on the dash, as I was considering taking a similar path that you took.

    Rear of the frame is pretty much the same all the way to 2011 so you can chop off the back of the new frame and weld a section of your old frame in its place.
