Wow, damaged the frame. Care to share more about the accident?

This guy is restoring a salvage truck notice he found a frame cheaper, you might want to contact him and ask questions since he has been doing the work lately.

Good luck,
Chris

This would be an insurance claim. Anyway, why don't you have it repaired? 99% of damaged frames can be repaired properly. I worked insurance claims for 30+ years and paid for thousands to be repaired. I also owned many that had sustained substantial frame damage and wore them out without any problems.

That sucks. My guess is one too many 'Dukes of Hazzard' marathons

Have you called any reconstruction shops? Like osbornk mentioned, it can probably be repaired.

Sorry guys where im frome we call these cement pipes branches due to location....if a line breaks we say "south branch 4 is broken" (not in laredo by the way) so yeah my frame was repaired...it was more than 30 degrees out of line...and now is cracking at the point where the lower control arm is connected or where the trans. cooler is mounted. plus I posed the question to Gieco and the adjuster said if the collision center said it would be better to replace they would total loss it and i could kiss it goodbye......

I only have 4 k left to pay on the truck because i payed a whole lot of it when my settlement check came in for a motorcycle accident...and i dont want to loose that money...
