Thanks man!


Well, I am half way done on my 1 ton swap, got the easier to put in 14bolt done. Just have to weld the pirches on after I get the tranny in and make sure it is how i want It. It is just tacked right now



Then i fixed the fubar in my frame. I cut the bad section right out




Then I made some new patch panels



Then welded them in, front and back



Then I made a template for a fish plate I am gonna cut out at work tomorrow with the plasma.
