    I have a neighbor with this truck and he is worried about the frame cracking. I am not sure if this model and year applies and does someone on here make the gussets you can weld in?

    Yes that is the truck. Weld in triangular shaped gussets around 5 inches long.

    It is

    one of the trucks that can have frame breakage. I had an 01 and a 2009 crew cab short bed gas trucks and I didnt have any problems. The gussetts are a good idea but if your not hanging a 1000 lb. plow on it or bashing curbs then you probably wont have a problem. If you have other people driving it then the gussetts should be put in. there was a guy on here with the gussets for sale, I havent seen him post in a while but his name was
    B&B. I beleive he was a gm mechanic, he knew alot about gm trucks anyway.
