Straightened Frame!

I figured out how to straighten the back of my frame that got bent by my bumper. I put the hi lift jack between the end of the frame rails and straightened it out. the one side was bent, and it went back to normal, the other side was still fine and it stayed put...

Re: Straightened Frame!

Possibly weld a bar between the two rail for strength.

Re: Straightened Frame!

well, the bumper i put on will most likely keep it straight, but i was going to weld some 1/4" plate on the inside of the frame to stengthen it.
