That's where I got my frame patch from. Good stuff, bit pricy but oh well

That crack looks dangerous! I would NOT drive that truck. It's time to buy another truck & scrap this one?

If your '98 Ranger has the 2-piece frame, and IF the front half is safe, then you can replace the whole back portion by unbolting it, about 1 foot behind the cab. A junkyard ought to provide a safe frame. At 200K miles, it might not be worth the hassle.

Yeah I found this the other day after doing an oil change on my buddies lift. Welded up the crack and reinforced it the next day.
