B-3 PW Frame

Here are some views of a very nice frame with the transfer case and driveshafts removed.  It has light surface rust, but is very straight.  There are no modifications, cuts, or welds.  Most fender and running board brackets were removed except for two running board bracket hanging loosely on each side that were not completely removed when the photos were taken.  Also, the master cylinder is lying on the right splash shield. 

Above and below, looking along the frame rails shows the offset.  See the frame diagram at the bottom of this page for the dimensions.

Above and below, the rear crossmember showing the holes for mounting the pintle hook or the rear PTO, and well as the holes for mounting the drawbar.  Note the "hat channel" design that is boxed by adding the riveted bottom piece.

Above, a view of the crossmember that supports the frame at the front hangers for the rear springs.  It is similar in construction to the rear crossmember in that it, too, is a "hat channel" design that is boxed by adding the riveted bottom piece.  By the way, both these "boxed" crossmembers collect debris and are subject to rust through. 

Above and below, the supports and straps for mounting the gas tank.
