Cool, that looks like some nice clean work there... I think you just came here to show off.

Upload your pics to photobucket and copy and paste the img code into your post and the pics will appear in your post.

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.

after blowing up 2 22rs in six months i decided for a 350 swap which nturally called for a sas with 5 inchs of lift plus one in the body to clear distributor and valve covers

i drove it daily wheeled it quite often and towed a boat with it for camping for 5 years till she rotted out properly

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

heres the back halves jigged up ready for tacking i decided to keep things simple by keeping it flat insted fo bendy and wavy like the stock frame

heres the front half tacked to the back half passenger side

drivers side frame from the front

standing the two halves together used a laser level to get them both dead nuts even

this is the rear cross member tacked in place

front crossmember tacked in everything is dead nuts level and perfectly square

heres the center main crossmember tacked in

rear tubing style crossmember with stiffeners

braced up ready for welding


all joints ground out for full penetration welds

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.

Buter

What do you mean "rotted", rusted?
