85 toyota frame repair?

I have a 85 Toyota 4x4 pickup and the rear frame decided to rot away on me. Is there a way to repair this kind of damage? Or is this when everyone decides to throw in the towel? The truck runs good and I would hate to send it to the scrap yard if there is a way to fix it.

There have been several posts regarding frame repair. Some have replaced sections of framing including inner/outer walls or fabricating complete back half replacements. It's something's that definately doable but you have to see what you're working with first. You may not have good steel for several inches in either direction.

Depends, if you want to build a wheeler, it just involves a torch or sawzall, a welder and some tube.

new england RUST!

Here is what new england does to toyotas.






The rust is pretty much spred threwout the rear frame it probably could use a complete replacement. If someone could point me to some links on frame replacement that would be great.

i have an 85 4runner, the frame was in great shape- mostly original paint until the rear most tube crossmember. after that the thinner inside boxing had a couple holes on each side. patching a rusty frame is a waste of time IMO, so i hacked it off 8" behind said crossmember. the closest tubing is 4"x2" which wouldn't work, so i had some 3/16" C channel formed up, 2 outside and 2 inside pieces. i also added a 2x3 tube crossmember at the back.

oh yeah, the whole process took about 8 hours solo, including beer breaks. started at midnight, finished in time for work in the morning. the truck is a DD.

if the rest of the frame is good, its worth it.
