Fixing my bent frame I hope

So when I first bought my teryx with less then 20 hours on it the frame bent in "the spot". This happened to my old Rhino also So I took it apart plated the fram welded on some new tabs a little spray paint and done. Now the other side has bent but Im going to do it a little different this time. I used CAD to draw up some parts to fix it and will have them cut. Basically it all will fit together like a puzzle. I hope.

My frame bent on the front mount this time. But the other side was the rear. My Rhino was also the rear.

This next one is a screen shot from cad it is the main plate that will go along th frame rail. It will be cat from 3/16. The two 1/4" cut lines in the center are just to weld to the frame. The other cut out holes are where the arm mounts will go.

This next one is a screen shot of the tab. I will need four of these per side. You can see how they will fit in the main plate and have a lip for the top gusset to line up with.

And this is the top gusset. I will need two of these per side. It slides into the top hole and has cut outs to fit in the lip of the side tab.


What do you guys think? Has any one seen this done before? Does anyone sell a kit already?

There is nothing real special that comes to mind. The frame maybe strong enough to hit some mud puddles or put through the woods but they don't stand up to any real amount of abuse. It seems like anyone who rides in the desert shares the same fate at some point and will bend the frame.

It seem pretty common. Check the near the welds for the lower a-arm mounts. You may notice the paint starting to crack. If your paint is chipping or cracked at this location then you have started to bend the or push in the frame.

Yes that's what I did. But I took the good side apart and made a jig so the spacing was correct. It has held up just fine.

I went to my friend Dugs Shop last night to cut these out on his CNC plasma table. I guess these will have to be a prototype since a few of my measurements are off after mocking it up this morning. No big deal i will correct it in the DXF File and be ready to rock soon.
