    Anyone have any tips for re-positioning a crew"cab" on the frame? I've already loosened up the cab bolts under the cab and removed the bolts from the inner fender to the firewall...have I missed any? What's next? What technique? what tools(besides BFH)? The lines from the bed to the cab are off and the fender and doors aren't lining up properly. It appears as though the cab is sitting cockeyed on the frame. I'm sure the front clip will need some adjustment also but I'll get to that when I replace the fenders.
    thanks in advance

    I like the idea of using a come-along. What other bolts do I need to losen? Are there any up under the firewall that are hard to find?
