How much longer is a 130 frame?

I'm wondering if anyone knows how much longer the frame is on a 130 than a 110?
I assume its not as simple as the 20"

I'm thinking that I may hack part of my old tub off so that if I ever swap my 110 frame out I'd have the option to make the bed a bit longer.

I was also thinking about possibility of welding my old cross member from the 90 to my existing 110 frame to add the extra length.

Feel free to flame away!
It would be nice to have a little more of a functioning bed, and I'm still smarting from someone calling the 110 crew the LR version of the Avalanche!

now that I compare the pics it looks like a bad idea, unless I got a 130 frame and the extra long tub

That would be one complex swap. *To make the 130 frame work, you would have to make all mods to body and driveshafts that come with longer wheelbase. *Better to buy a project 130 and build up as you'd be destroying a lot of value in the 110. *

Avalanche? *They look nothing alike.

I think a 130 is just 20" longer than a 110..... the very early 130's were built as 110 chassis, then shipped over the factory to the SV department, where they chopped the straight middle piece of the mani chassis rails, and added in a 20" extension. (with bracings, naturally)

130's use the same rear tank as a 110, axle and A frame/trailling arms are the same, as is the overhang on the hi-cap rear tub (although the 130 DC-HCPU has a "stubby" hicap tub, not the same length as the 110 hicap)

So yes, you can just chop the chassis in the middle and add an extension piece.

As said, you'll need a longer rear propshaft. longer brake pipe (no issue there), longer fuel pipe. rear wiring harness may fit from a 110, or worst case get another and splice in the rear part to extend it.

the exhaust, from microcat, is just a 20" bolt in piece that fits up against the silencer.

A 130 is 127" wheelbase. The early 127s were 110 chassis cut in half with an extra bit of frame welded in (like LWB RRCs are).

The "early 130s" were 127s. Cut in half with 17" added in.

"The 127 (and 130)
From 1983 Land Rover introduced a third wheelbase to its utility line-up, a 127-inch (3,226 mm) twin-axle vehicle designed to accommodate larger, heavier loads than the One Ten. Called the Land Rover 127, it was designed specifically with use by utility and electrical companies in mind, as well as military usage.[4] In its standard form it is a four-door six-seater consisting of the front half of a One Ten Station Wagon, and the rear of a One Ten High-Capacity Pick Up (HCPU). The logic was that this allowed a workcrew and their equipment to be carried in one vehicle at the same time. The 127 could carry up to a 1.4 tonnes (1.4 long tons; 1.5 short tons) payload, compared to the 1.03 tonnes (1.01 long tons; 1.14 short tons) payload of the One Ten and the 0.6 tonnes (0.59 long ton; 0.66 short ton) of the Ninety.
127s were built on a special production line, and all started life as One Ten Station Wagon chassis (the model was initially marketed as the One Ten Crew Cab, before the more logical 127 name was adopted). These were then cut in two and the 17 inches (432 mm) of extra chassis length welded on before the two original halves were reunited. 127s did not receive their own dedicated badging like the other two models, instead they used the same metal grille badges as used on the Series III 109 V8 models, that simply said Land-Rover.
Although the standard body-style was popular, the 127 was a popular basis for conversion to specialist uses, such as mobile workshops, ambulances, fire engines or even flatbed transports. In South Africa, the Land Rover assembly plant there offered a 127 Station Wagon with seating for 15. Land Rover also offered the 127 as a bare chassis, with just front bodywork and bulkhead, for easy conversion.
Initially held back by the low power of the Land Rover engines (other than the thirsty petrol V8 engine), the 127 benefited from the improvements to the line-up, and by 1990 was only available with the two highest power engines, the 134 hp (100 kW) 3.5-litre V8 petrol, and the 85 hp (63 kW) 2.5-litre Diesel Turbo.
