95 Ford ranger


I had to cut the drivers side frame rail from behind the cab back because of rust and I have already purchased another frame that was cut from the same kind of truck behind the cab.My question is can any body give me some advice on putting it back together?

Ayuh,.... Ain't done a little truck, done lotsa class 8 trucks,...

Oughta be 'bout the same,.....

Pull back or remove all the wirin', 'n plumbin' in the area,....
Clean, 'n prep the frame ends for weldin', position 'em into place, 'n tack 'em up,...
Keep recheckin' yer measurements to keep things aligned, 'n keep tackin' it together,....
When ya got a full-pen weld, grind it clean, 'n flush,....
Fab up some fisch plates to span the area, inside, 'n out,...
Clamp 'em in-place, 'n start tackin' 'em in,....
Keep tackin', 'n cleanin', 'n checkin' til the plates are welded all 'round, Except the vary ends at the points,....
'n I always leave a tiny gap at the bottom to drain any water,...

How well equipped are ya,..??

What welder,..??

What bondo said, but we went one farther stretching frames we drill holes on each side of the splice and used grade 8 bolts as back up if the welds cracked. But the straight trucks we made were for a fertilizer coop. And were always over loaded driving through fields too
