WANTED: TRUCK FRAME

i went to my buddys sahop today to have the crack in my frame welded up last night. (and all of you should know the one i am talking about.)well the first part went fine but the second section he looked at me and said i would start looking for a frame. along the bottom edge is rotted just about out.

So i was wondering how long and how hard it would be to switch my truck over to another frame?? And i found a frame $250 for just the frame. Or they will leave the axlea drum to drum 12bolt and dana44 for $600. is this a good way to go. just figured i would ask my fellow chevy owners??

Re: WANTED: TRUCK FRAME

Im not sure where are you from but I knew up here in Ontario quite often I see frames or rolling chasies for sale in the local Tri-add paper. I saw a 1ton rolling chasis last night when I was looking through it and it comes with the frame,Dana60,14-bolt FF, drive shafts and NP205 T-case. Even has tires and rims. The guy is asking $800 for it which seems pretty cheap if I were looking for an older chasis. Just look in your local papers like that. Maybe you can find a whole parts truck for sale. You can sometimes get them for pretty cheap too just because someone wants it out of there drive way and doesn't know how much the parts are worth and wants more than the $200 that the wreckers is willing to pay for it.

Just my opinion....Ryan

<font color=blue>If you don't mind traveling down here to NJ there's a junkyard with a few truck frames there. I'm sure you could get one for a good price</font color=blue>
