    I'd hate to have the frame crap out.

    Not sure on fit, you'd have to check the numbers maybe on a Toyota parts site (toyotapartszone might list it maybe, not looked), but there is a guy advertising down here that has a complete frame for sale. Located in ABQ area NM. Think he has advertised it here on the board if I'm not mistaken. Seems like it was really cheap to buy as he'd rather it go to someone that needs it than to junk it.

    Don't know him or anything, but have emailed him on some other pieces and seems a nice chap. Not bought anything yet though so make your own mind up etc before purchase.

    Biggest thing would be transport, but then one wonders how expensive it would be through Uship or something similar. You could always contact him and see what you think.

    Hope that helps!

    Not sure if this will work, but knew I saw the listing on here.
