I suppose with two pickup trucks and some chain you could strech a frame. From personal experience, shortening a frame is much easier. You only need the side of one car and a moment of inattention.

Unfortunately on ebay you sometimes need to ask the stupid question - because there really are stupid sellers who might have attempted such a feat.
