Frame Repair Near Steering Box

The frame on my 99 is cracked where the steering box mounts to it. It's about 4-5" long. I have the ability to cut/weld the crack, and reinforce with some new metal. But it would be quicker to have a pre-made re-enforcement plate. Do they make plates for these trucks like they do for the older ones? I googled but couldn't find any.

Re: Frame Repair Near Steering Box

I had my 84 fixed at a truck repair place before I knew Anything about a repair panel. The guy just welded in the cracks and plated the bottom of the frame and held up fine
