Hey 89, how did you remove your cab without a gantry or lift. I saw In the background of one photo you had an engine hoist inside of the cab.

A buddy and I did a body swap on his truck. He lifted one side of the cab, I blocked, and with the bed already off just rolled the frame out from under.

The first pic is how I lifted it off. Worked good for the bed but it bent the reciever hitch mount I welded on to the engine crane when lifting the cab.

The second pic is how I reinstalled it. I welded up a bracket to bolt to the engine crane and attached a 4x4 post to that. Not a real good picture but unfortunately it's all I can find

Thanks 89 much appreciated. I was thinking doing It old school with a bunch of friends but, being In my 50's as well as my friends life gets busy. Getting 1 of my friends to help me Is hard enough. Trying to get 4-6 Is a mission impossible episode. This will help a bunch. By the way It's looking really good. What did you use on the bottom of the cab rust bullet?

He needs to get his priorities in order.
I told the boys at that age. You can have cars or girlfriends. But you will not be able to afford both.

Yeah, he loves his football but not going to make a living doing it! This project has really developed his love of all things automotive! Talking about a car for next summer already. I told him he has to pay the full shot for that one.

You bet, I had to buy all my own stuff. That Is If I wanted nice stuff. I'm a drummer and really into music. I had to buy all my own gear and stereo equipment and that shit gets expensive when your 13. I had to save for a year for my first drum kit. Then another 3 months for a set of cymbals.

Had to buy my own also. Our three boys and two girls also had to buy their own. Plus insurance. I had to work on the girls cars untill they left home.
