      Yes Pete that was very kind of you to do that.

      :thumbsup:

      Knowing you though, I wouldn't expect anything less. And for that I feel fortunate.

      dont really need the box off, just a block of wood, and a BFH. if you get time, can you take the trim panel off on the inside for me how ever. if you can't not a big deal.

      well , this project is gonna get rolling here pretty soon as all the snow is going away, and i can find all the parts now,, so,

      i am going to start on the back first, get the bed/box off, and maybe get the back springs and shocks all hooked up and sorted out first before i put the front up and start the grinding that follows to get the front axle brackets off to put on the drop brackets,, and figure out the radius arms..

      Started to get to work on this today, jacked it up and started taking the box off

      so far i got 5 of the six bolts out, just 1 more , but the center of the torx stripped out, no biggie, angle grinder, and new bolt from the body lift to replace them
