    Have you checked with a frame alignment shop to see what it would cost to just have your current frame straightened? Swapping out the entire frame is a pretty big job. I'd gladly pay a few hundred bucks to have one fixed before attempting that adventure! [​IMG]

    I have frame and axles for a mid 70's Jimmy, believe a 75/76. Just sitting out back. Got it for parts truck. Stripped it down, that's what I've got left.
    And I'm not that far from you... NE Indiana.
    Have no idea for a price... can let you look at it and make offer. I just got a digital camera this weekend. Let me take a pic tomorrow and I can e-mail it to you. E-mail me at tatman@skyenet.net if you are interested. I'll reply with the pic.

    Tatman,I sent you an e-mail.

    I know its a big job,the body's already off the frame!LOL

    The frame has been welded on a few times and it looks like someone already tried to heat it and bend it back into place.
    So I'ld feel better after all this work putting a better frame back under it.

    Thanks for the replies.

    DAmn dude! You bit off a big ass bite on gettin this rig didn't you? I bet Karen is sounding like a broken record, "I told you so, I told you so. "

    Still hoping the GOV'T will ban the use of loud stereos with RAP music. [​IMG]
