    mobile welder to fix K10 frame damage

    I've got the infamous damaged frame at the steering box mount. The PO says he had a minor collision that bent the front bumper mount, driver side. Coupled with the one blown out bolt hole and cracked frame, it appears to have bent the frame in at that spot. I have the ORD reinforcement kit but the side piece is nowhere near flush due to pretty substantial damage.

    Now that the background is out of the way...I need help. I tried like hell to find a way to take up the extra space to get the plate on but not only do I not feel confident in my welds for something like that, I don't like how it was coming together and decided I need more of an expert welder/fabricator to finish the job. I've called half a dozen of mobile welders that Google/Yellow Pages/Yelp have listed. One person actually answered but not much more has happened since. The rest never returned my calls or the numbers are disconnected.

    I'm out of ideas and I'm getting really sick of looking at the truck parked in my driveway. I want it fixed. If any of you know any company that can help or someone looking for a little cash, please let me know.

    Oh, I should add the truck isn't mobile. Right now, the driver side tire is off and it's sitting on a jack stand.

    Nates Precision or Samco does fantastic fab work, give 'em a call, get it on the schedule, tow it there if need be.

    I was afraid of that. I don't have AAA and can't afford the probably close to $300 for the tow.

    New question: does anyone have a flat bed with a winch to get me to a shop? Haha it was worth a shot.

    Did you ever find someone to do this work for you?

    I could weld this up. Took a look at bracket you mentioned and it's a straightforward job. Can you post a picture of your frame so I know it's not all rusted out?

    I don't really have a mobile setup (trailer generator etc) but long as I can hookup to 220 (dryer plug) I'm good.

    No, I'm still trying to work out what the hell I'm gonna do with it. I can get you some pictures but it might be a day or two. Texting them to you would be the easiest route, if that's okay.
