If all else fails, the frame has a seam in it just below the doors. You should be able to swap in the front half of another frame.

I would check into the frame straightening option. Why create more work for yourself.
Just my 2 cents.

Can't really see any FRAME damage by your pics just the body damage. But if I was you I would call up a reputiable frame shop or body shop and see what they can do for you first.
Later,

Its hard to tell from pictures, to me from what I see your suspension looks bent looks like the Lh wheel is turned more than Rh wheel I dont see any obvious frame impact. The suspension on those trucks is simple to replace parts on and the lower control arms may have taken most of the impact it must have gone off the road or something.I would straighten out the wheels and see if the distance from rear fender well on front ferners is close on both sides.Also look at mounting backets on frame for the suspension parts for visable bends or cracks.A good frame shop can install partial frame rails with very good results.
