    Looks good from what I can see.

    LOL, that center plug wire is SO SCREWED! Better keep an eye on it, those headers will cook that boot.

    No frame damage at all, just sheetmetal toasted. The only things I have to do are to get the right seat bases and seats for it, get a new windsheild, since this one is cracked, get my "new" BFG 31" tires on the rims, and the exaust fitted to the headers. then I can get it on the road and to a lift to fix a T-case leak and some mild floor rust. I do have a bit more info on the truck on my site. it's under photo page #2, if anyone is interested. Nothing really in depth, just what I know about it.

    Looks Nice. I can't wait till I get one. I guess I'll just have to keep on helping my hubby with his till I do.

    Confederate- Me, my dad and chris (BigGray71) put the front clip together in my driveway. we used a repro clip from a K-5 with a dead tub in a junkyard. The only peice of the clip that is origional is the passanger's side fender.
