    Yah so I was workin' on replacing the rear cab mounts/lower rail and kinda did more harm than good...brother is not a happy camper! <kick self> :doah:

    the doors still work, but....

    Anyone done this? Shall I finish the beginning of the photograhical story (writeup)? Dependent on whether he ever lets me touch the truck again, of course...

    whoops!

    I have damaged a cab or two myself by using the wrong method of lifting it!..I learned to use a 2x12 board with eye bolts under the roof to attach the hoist cables or chains too,and to leave the doors on and closed while lifting--(I still sqiushed the doors slightly on my truck,even with the board as a "load spreader")...

    Dont feel bad--my brother and I ruined a nice Mazda "club cab" pickup while doing a cab swap(putting his good cab on a frame that was rust free,his was swiss cheese)...it buckled right in half when we lifted it with the backhoe!--and we had just yanked off the rusted one off the "doner" truck with NO problem whatsoever :doah: --my brother saw red,and smashed the truck flat with the backhoe,until it was 2ft high :eek1: --a waste of 700 bucks for both trucks,and a LOT of labor and time! :tongue1: :frown1: :crazy:

    weird i did the same thing and carried it around my dads shop on a fork lift like that no problem/ no dents or anyting. i used a 4'' wide strap though that might of made a difference

    Funny you mentioned the burnout contest...care to post the vid or sumthin', brother?

    There was a lighting storm outside while we were workin' on it, and he was viddin' it with me doing a burnout on my old boggers with my dodge.
