Hello,

I have a B4000 1999 and Yesterday i hit when offroading a stone right on the front crossmember...
The truck feel perfect, the alignment "seem" to be good and i got no vibration at all.
I am wondering if i should get the alignment check, or see a frame shop if the can fix it, or i need to replace it, or if am lucky just let this like it is and don't put money on that!! lol









any advice or suggestion on what should i do :icon_confused:

Get the alignment checked, if no issues call it a day.

Any good body shop with a frame machine should be able to straighten that out easily.

It looks like a job for a BFH. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. I'd just knock that sharp bit back flat and drive it like I stole it.
