    frame is a little tweaked,
    could fix it but didn't know if i could use a frame from
    a 2wd ext cab or possibly a 4runner (but it looks like it's a shorter wheelbase)

    or am i better off just putting it on my friends frame machine to straighten it out...
    (maybe even re-enforce it a little)

    thanks in advance for any input :cool:

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Straightening and reinforcing sounds safer than welding two different frames together, in my opinion. :p
