3500 Van Frame rust issues- Advice?
 
Just bought a Ram 3500 Van, took it to get inspected and it failed because the frame is in very bad shape rustwise. Not sure which way to go with the van- Would it make sense to try to swap for another frame? repair the frame as-is now...? I've done a small amount of welding in the past. What's involved, and what really makes sense? I don't need to actually drive the vehicle for another 6 months. Let me know what you think.
Thanks!

Is it rusted through, or just rusty? If its rusted through in spots, try welding some plates into the frame...if its just rusty, get a few cans of rubberized undercoating and spray it down and have it reinspected...
