JW Rod Garage
JW Rod Garage is the newest source for updating the stock frame of your Ford pickup. They now offer upgraded replacement frames for 1948-52 and 1953-56 Ford trucks. JW Rod Garage frames are constructed with fully boxed 'rails and include their proven Mustang II front crossmember, tubular centersection, and rear crossmember mounts. Their frames are built in the United States.
The latest additions to JW Rod Garage's frame lineup complements their always-popular 1928-40 Ford cars and trucks, their 1955-57 (TRI-5) Chevy cars, 1953-61 Studebaker (standard), and the somewhat harder-to-find 1933-38 Mopar. Frames are available in various stages of completion, ranging from base perimeter frame packages to complete rolling chassis packages with all the options.

Shocks are the brains of your suspension! That's why nothing makes more of difference in how your vehicle rides and handles than a great set of shock absorbers. The new RideTech line of mono-tube shocks offers many improvements over the old twin-tube style that has been in use since the 1950s...larger piston area for better oil control, more efficient fluid path for cooler oil temps, and refined valve tuning that will make any suspension smile. Now there is no compromise between great ride quality and great handling!
Replacement shocks, coilovers shocks, or the patented ShockWave air suspension shocks...RideTech can optimize your suspension.
Roadster Shop offers unmatched craftsmanship, attention to detail, and performance in its complete chassis lineup. Chassis are available for the 1955-57 Chevy and 1958-64 Chevy cars, as well as a complete pro touring muscle car lineup. For easy installation, chassis come equipped with all stock body mounts, bumper mounts, and engine and trans mounts. The performance is gained through the Roadster Shop's proven Fast Track IFS and either a four-bar/9-inch axle rear, or the Fast Track IRS. Custom valved RS by Penske racing shocks are standard on all chassis and provide the ultimate blend of smooth ride quality and on-track performance. The Fast Track Elite Series of billet aluminum components are offered for those looking to take their chassis to the next level. Roadster Shop chassis are built to the highest standards and are the foundation for performance.
A really nice hot rod project deserves a top-quality chassis from Fatman Fabrications. That's why they are used under the STREET RODDER 2012 1940 Ford and 2013 1951 Ford Road Tour cars. Why weld, repair, and fill pits on an old chassis when a very affordable new one can be built to your specs? Complete new frames for 1932-40 and 1949-51 Ford, 1955-56 Ford, 1955-57 T-bird, 1937-40 and 1955-57 Chevy cars, 1932-79 Ford trucks, and 1934-59 Chevy trucks are available. Anglia, Morris Minor, and custom frames complete the lineup of 21 different applications. All are specifically designed for your car, with all necessary body, bumper, and radiator mounts in place to make your installation a pleasure. These are not "universal" chassis, which require you to fit your car to a Fatman frame!
Your choice of engine and trans will be mounted, with a wide variety of options, such as air ride, coilovers, power-assisted steering and brakes, four-wheel discs, stainless steel control arms, and rear axles. Complete brake plumbing, Borgeson Universal Company U-joints, and epoxy primer options can make your body swap even easier.
