Default Anyone know of a frame shop in/near CT?

Hello NESIC.

I've got a 1993 Dakota and the back half of the frame is rusted out. The front half is still good. My plan is to have the whole rear half replaced. I've got a friend that could do the welding, but with this kind of work, alignment is obviously key. If anyone knows of a reputable frame shop that might tackle this job, please let me know. Thank you.

How about just an experienced welder/weld shop? If I can do the aligning myself that would make it easier.

Well update: I managed to get a whole new frame. Problems is that the dumbass I bought it from cut the transmission and torsion bar crossmembers. He welded them back in but did a disgusting job.

So I still need some welding work. At least this frame is for all intents and purposes...rust free.

Bringing it to Frederick's Auto Works in Ellington CT to see what they can do.
