Recently got myself a 2003 Ford Ranger for relatively cheap. Most everything runs fine, but the frame is completely rusted through almost everywhere. I know a replacement frame would be a few hundred dollars, but generally how much would it cost in labor to get the frame replaced? I'll be asking around for estimates tomorrow when everything's open, right now I'm trying to get some help online.
