driving down the road going to get on the interstate and i hear some thing clanging pull over and find this guess i had to much axle wrap and the frame gave up the ghost now i gotta weld it all back up tomorrow and gonna reinforce it with about a foot of angle on each side of the frame i am going to cut the other side off and beef it up before something bad happens there also

fish plate the side so it distributes the forces equally away for the weld

Wow. That's crazy man. Glad nothing worse happened. That could have been really bad news at highway speed.
