Looking at buying a ram van. Been in the market awhile and have watched this one for 2 months. He lowered the price today, so I went to look at it. Runs and drives great, stops fine. Body is in good shape two rust spots above ground effects on driver rear. Interior will clean up nice. He said he will take 1300, I said sold,and then thought hey they say to check the frame. I look at the rear spring hangers, perfect look all up both sides of body perfect. Heard some horror stories about the stearing box mount...perfect, still has the original paint with no flaking on the front frame. Go to the other side, frame rail looks perfect still got the paint. Then I see a Lil rust under the splash guard/inner fender where it is mounted up by the bumper. Push on it and it is soft. He says go ahead pull the splash guard I never noticed that. Pull the splash guard and a 3 inch oval pushes in. Weld is still good. It appears to be a support out to the bumper. I can touch the actual frame it is welded to and it is solid. So now to my question. Is this just a bumper mount and it will be okay to plate, or should I walk away?
