    I ordered both the weld in kit and the bolt in kit from ORD, I don't have the means to have the weld in kit dome right now, should i bolt in the Brace and wait? or is it better to do it all at once??

    Do all you can when you can. Put the bolt in kit on and do the weld in as you can. It will definitely help.

    Definitely waiting on the beer.....

    But you know if we laid a few slices of pizza near the welding area, they'd stay "nice & toasty" warm!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Sounds like a plan! I have the TTC tapes and the 4xVideo Moab edition. I can drop them off to you Monday after work.

    I got the beer and pizza covered if you want to help me do the welding. Gimme a weekend you are available. I'll be in touch/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Zakk,

    We can play this weekend by ear if you'll have your truck back by then.... (How's that going by the way? I'd be SO excited to see it if it was mine in the paint shop!)

    I have defined Tuesdays & Thursdays as "welding nights" in the garage....gives my wife a nice "break" from me, and I can just go noodle around in the garage for a few hours each night. If you're free on one of those evenings and that's more convenient than a weekend, we can plan that too.

    You know how to reach me!

    ps. Don't worry, I've got scraps of cardboard for the oil drips! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
