Its looking good, What size (thickness and dimension) tubing you using? and Are you using dimensions off your existing frame or what?

Frame is looking good. I bet it weighs a ton though. I can easily lift up one end of my bare frame, but I'm sure you probably need a forklift or two strong guys to move yours.

heres some of the rot there is plenty more behind the gas tank and between the spring shackles since i had alredy patched up the likely spots over the years i figured i'll just build a new one from scratch

some of the tacoma frames we have replaced for the recall looked good enough to salvage for your project! you should comb the local toyota dealers to see if they have any.....

Hi Stoytp

Sorry to dig this up from the grave but was wondering if you went off drawings for this or just carried measurements over from the old frame to the new one?

I've got a 4 door Hilux that has to go in for it's initial inspection to be registered on the island I live on and the frame is no bueno. The more I poke around, the worse it is. I either need to part it out (no market here for that) or fab up a new frame. My garage is just big enough to fab up a frame, but not big enough to strip down the old chassis to use as reference.

Great forum, first post and thanks in advance.
