Aftermarket frame supports?

Hey i had my truck last night sitting in between a couple points where the a front tire was up and the rear opposite tire was also up, anyway the point is the frame was seriously twisted up. I didnt try to open the tailgate but not sure if i could have.

My question is does anyone make aftermarket braces for these OBS trucks to stiffen up the frame where it wont twist so bad in the middle.

There is a thread on nation discussing this same issue. Basically you need to weld or bolt in some reinforcements.
