Re: Bed interchangablity

I'm facing this same problem now. Does anyone have advice for the simplest approach to relocating the cross members in the bed and drilling/broaching the square bolt holes?

Re: Removing your cab from the frame

Thanks for all those great tits I really appreciate it! As far as using a lift, I'm very excited to try my adjustable body dolly I've been fabricating out of 3.5" & 4" square tube! After I get it finished up, I'll be sure to share the action shots. Hopefully I can get someone to video ...

Re: Removing your cab from the frame

Aside from how it's supported and handled after its detach. what all has to be disconnected? 1) break lines 2) electrical to the bed (I would love some ideas here) 3) the obvious bolts - under the radiator - 2 @ front - 2 @ the back I'm sure I'm missing something here? I would love some tips! Thanks...
