Default Frame HELP

Hey, I recently had an offroading accident and my trucks frame was bent. Basically the bed sits crooked and I dont know what else is wrong. I will try to post pictures, but i need to know if theres anyway to fix it without buying a new one and without paying a ton of money. Please let me know any advice that you may have or if you know anyone that could help out in any way

you basically have two options.

1: find one in a junkyard and swap everything over.

2: take it to a body shop and pay to have them put it on the rack and straighten it.

ya if you straighten it, its gunna cost a bunch. and itll never be as strong as it was. you could have it straightened and then have the frame plated with 1/4'' steel

how does the bed sit crooked? is it off left or right or up or down. it would have to be one hell of a offroading accident to tweak the frame. snap a couple pics of it.

thats not always the case. the frame will be just as strong unless it was kinked when it was bent but in that case any good collision shop would plate the kinked area when they pull the frame. also depending on the shop and the damage it probably wont cost as much as you think.

I dont understand how you pull it straight..? so you tie it to a trunk then push down on the bed where its higher then... ?
