    I sent a message to Enola, I'm waiting for a reply. My frame on my 97 Tacoma looks like swiss cheese. I want to repair it, but I need the dimensions to make sure everything is in the correct place.

    I'm looking for a donor frame that I can use the rear clip out of. Would you be interested in selling yours? What condition are the frame rails in?

    frame rails are fine in rear the rear shackle points were moved , due to aftermarket springs being used in rear... but thats not hard to change
