    I had the same thing I found that if you use 6x3x188 square tube and cut the top off to the height of the fram rail it slides over perfectly.

    frame repair plan

    Here is some pics of what I was thinking of doing to fix the problem just going to box it in using these. On a seperate note whats your opinion on Miller 135 welder just picked it up from work for 50 bones thought it was a good deal.

    hey what is the thickness in that steal? you should never weld a straight surface where you connect to the old frame think jigsaw puzzle its much stronger

    I wouldn't cap the old russty stuff. I would cut it out and make a new rear piece. as for the welder, it should be good for up to 1/8" material. Use gas as its much easier to weld upside down with.

    Depending on the shackel you use, you might have a problem with the added width and depth of the frame rail. My lift shackels needed to be modified when I boxed in my frame. Not a big deal just added agro.

    that miller 135'll work great, but use the gas. it'll be worth it.and cut the old stuff out. it'll make it tougher to do, but you'll end up with better results.
    currently building a toyota. i'm sorry.

    Thanks for the reply I am picking up the gas on Monday, Not sure if I have the nuts to cut out the old sh$t and weld in new, I just finished grinding all the rust off. Havent welded in a long time not sure if i'm up to the task. Would make a better job though.

    just go at it one side at a time. working opposite sides. (left side, right side, top, bottom.) i had to do framerails on my old malibu, sure its scary to cut up your truck, but when its all done, you can say you did it.

    Trust me... mine was much worse... much worse. I got a new frame from Dynnommyte. You should just ask around for a new one.
