We just purchased Torklift tie-downs on Craigslist, but unfortunately they are for bed mounting rather than frame. Too short. Wonder if they can be used with existing frame mount with chain extensions.

Of course. I use chain to bridge the tie down length on my unit and have for years. So long as the chain is rated for the weight, don't matter. Example, if the loaded weight of the unit is 6000 pounds, divide that by 4 (number of tie down points) = 1500 pounds + 20 percent safety margin = 1800 pound test weight chain. Back in the day (before manufactured tie downs were available), we used chain and hardware store turnbuckles.

I might add that Flea Bay is a good source as well, Just had a buddy sell a complete set of TL Fastgun's on Flea Bay. Myself, I prefer the HJ Quik Loads, Much less expensive and look the same (and function exactly like the TL product).
