Boxing our C channel Frame

Ok, so we got screwed and bought a C channel frame that flexes a lot. Now I know this might be a reach, but is there a way to box it? or brace it? b/c I know in the aftermarket world they do that a lot. I know for Camaros they make frame braces to stiffen it up quite a bit. some additional bolt on bracing wouldn't hurt.

Break out the welder and some 1/8" plate and box away. Any particular reason you think you need a boxed frame? They make subframe connectors for camaros and other cars like that because they don't have a real frame, they are unibody cars.

If you look at semi they dont box the frame because when your towing you want some flex in the frame from the torque and weight but thats just my 2 cents

10-4. I'm not messing with it. I figured for off-roading purposes.

just do your homework and see what kind of frame is best for offroading, if it is a boxed frame go for it.
