    definetally looks like a body disconnect there. Sure its not rusted around the mount and when it sits level it all looks good and bolted together???

    lol. rust hahaha. every panel is bran new, except the front floor and windshield frame. I checked it and its all there, funny though, I think it is the light bulb hanging by the wires right in front of it that makes it look wrong, "fog lamp bulb"

    Looks like the bolt head pulled through the hole on the rad support. Even with that bulb hanging there I can see all of the 3" 'puck' and then some. When you drove back down the head of the bolt would get shoved back under the support giving the illusion all is well at that corner...the bolt probably isn't even loose.

    Flex it out again and have a close look...

    Well I looked at it, there is no nut on there, fuuny because the bottom part of the body mount hasn't fallen off yet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I had a friend look, he said "looks good to me", guess I should have asked someone who knows what the heck a body mount is /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Man, that truck has come a long way since you started! Nice work... I'm still not sure on the toy lights but hey, its wearing in with me. Now that you tighten the front clip back up, think youre going to loose flex? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
