Was able to start getting some things done this weekend. Got the bed cleaned out and pulled shitty liner out. Pulled bed off to make working on stuff easier. Going to do a roll on bed liner up over the rails. Still in shock how clean the metal is.
It just kills me that the 97 chassis is so rusty. So far Im lookin at replacing the shackles and frame brackets,brake lines and hose,shocks and Im going to pull hitch off to replace old hardware with new grade 8 stuff. Plan to pin hammer the hole chassis then coat with something,not sure what yet tho.
