Finally had a full day plus tomorrow till 3 off work so I got at it with the bodylift. Had a bit of help from friends to move the bed around and check the engine bay but besides that I was alone. NEVER DO A BL ALONE!!! OMG sooo long! Especially when it's your first one...
This is how she sat before
During the tear down, 10am
Decided to bedline the frame and underside of the bed as it was pretty much all undone. Also took the tails I got from Lazler off and put the stockers back in. They don't match my color combo at all
Then started helping my roomate out to put his flowmaster on, screwed around a bit and next thing you know it's 6pm, gotta love unhooking wires when the sun is about to go down...
Don't have pics of how she sits now, at 4:30am, because I got really pissed off and only have a cell phone. But here it goes, also alone at this point...
11PM - Cab is lifted, now time to hook everything up.
11:15PM - Notice that my rad is jammed at the pass lower mount.
11:30PM - Only way to unjam it is by dropping the truck.
12:15AM - All 3" blocks are out. Cab is back to stock. Rad is free. Bring it back up.
12:45AM - Cab is lifted... again. Start tightening the bolts.. ALL inside cab make the bushing spin with about 1/2" left to go, stupid locktite, yes, I torched them don't worry
1:15AM - WTF, my steering extension doesnt fit... Not long enough...
1:30AM - After a quick search online, I decide to bring the cab back to stock and deal with it at another time.
2:15AM - Cab is back to stock.... again.... with the exeption of the driver rear, bushing won't stop being gay, so I leave it for now. My arms are sore, back is sore, I'm cold as hell and getting tired.
2:20AM - Go to install steering back together, well would you look at that! I can extend it by just pulling on the bastard!
3:10AM - Yup, cab is lifted again. Now trying to find a way to jam the bushing so it doesnt spin, having someone to hold it would help here.
3:30AM - Nothing is working, f*ck it.
4:00AM - Just finished about 4 smokes, wishing it would finish itself, decide to call it a night and hook everything up tomorrow..
4:30AM - Finally relaxing inside.
4:31AM - Here I am, posting away instead of sleeping. Trying to multitask uploading pics, copy/pasting IMG tags and writing all of this.
4:48AM - Goodnight
