OK, so I have the same rusted frame that I see lots of people talk about. I have a 99 extra cab with the short bed and both rear spring hangers are torn from the frame and rthe frame is cracked on the passenger side just behind the front spring hanger. The rest of the truck is like new. Almost every ranger in the junk yard is missing the rear half of the frame or the spring hangers are torn out like mine. I have a couple of options, fabricate a new frame from the cab back from 3/16 plate and rectangular tube or find frame rails from some other truck that can be altered to fit. I have the equipment and ability to do either but has anyone ever gone this route? Any pictures?
Funny thing about the frame issue, I have 2 99 rangers, the frame on one is like new and both have spent their lives in New Englend.
