Can a broken frame on an F-150 be fixed and how much would it cost?

Asked by Apr 04, 2017 at 11:32 AM about the Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A young friend of mine has a Ford F-150 (not sure of the year) and we
noticed that the bed of the truck was rubbing against the cab and after looking
it appears the frame is broken above the left rear tire.  Can that be fixed and
approximately how much would it cost?

The correct way to do it would be to replace the frame but that could close to $4,000.00 with out labor. I think a good welder could do the job for under a $1,000.00

I would not repair the frame. Not really safe although some will probably disagree with me. I would ask why it is broken. The rest of the frame is probably hammered too due to abuse or rust.
