Undercarriage rust fixable?

Hey guys. Is undercarriage rust like this fixable? If I can get the D90 at the right price, it might be worth giving it a shot. TIA.

Based on what I'm seeing that is a NON roadworthy truck that needs a new frame.

Classic rusted frame. Toast. Time for replace chassis. Get out the credit card and get to work.

I know this is a tough question, but how much is getting something like that fixed? Worst case scenario is what I am looking for...

New frame. How bad is everything else? If you pass, someone here will buy it.

Aren't new dipped 90 frames only 3-4K? Another 4K for the work? Or, if you're ambitious, you can do it yourself, probably spend twice that, and learn everything there is to know about these trucks! ;-)

Agreed.....that truck is NOT driveable in that condition.
The suspension is in danger of literally ripping away from what's left of the rotten frame.

Where is this truck and how much is the asking price??

Plus another 4K to put it all back together then figure in another 4K in parts and labor fixing all the other rusted, crusted hard to source parts then budget in another 10% for the hell of it. :-o

I can only guess the number of bolts that will need to cut or torched off. It would become a frustrating DIY project if you go that way.

Haha! I think I said just that, but forgot about the customary WTF 10% :-)

Truly! My frame is still clean and I still had to cut, torch, or extract every single bolt when I did my fuel tank.
