Remember when I said that my truck came from a field, then I bought it off my son , I been driving like this for at least 15000 miles
Yep.

Still needs to be straightened.

You may be surprised how much better it drives afterwards.

My wife was in a minor fender bender in her Cougar one time.

I took it to one of the best frame guys in the area; turns out a previous owner had been in a fender bender and the frame was slightly askew.

It drove and rode NOTICEABLY better afterwards; and that was without visible subframe warpage!

How ya doing this morning, truck is in the shop , my friend putting my transmission back in found this crack in my front passenger frame, getting it welded View attachment 3327
You should not just weld the crack. A couple of 1/8" plates on top of the fix would do you good.
I had a crack in one of my old Dakotas and I welded the seam and also bolted plates to the top and bottom of the fix.
Pain in the ass I know but makes for added piece of mind.

The only thing that holding it together is just the top cracked on both sides and the bottom , is the a flat surface for a plate, seams to ha e uneven surface on the frame
