..Any easy way around that?  I have a dell Poweredge running an external SCSI disk array that can handle 14 disks.  I currently have 3 in there with a 4th acting as a hot spare.  I would like to add 3 or 4 more disks to the array and simply add storage to the current array/partition....Is this possible without making the current disks Dynamic and having to restore from backup?

External Raid Arrays with their own controller do not need to be Dynamic Disks - That only applies to Windows controlled RAID. You will have to consult the documentation to determine the process for adding additional disks - or contact Dell.
