Body lift help part 4

After 15 hours we got very little done. we have a broken cab bolt(the one by the drivers feet) we have a front body mount (very front one passenger side) all screwed up, we had to cut the head of the bolt off and the rest of the bolt is still still in the washer thing. We pretty much got our asses kicked by the truck.

Anybody willing to come to baltimore tomorrow(sunday) to lend us a hand will receive free food and free beer.

I did mine by myself. Just buy some rust penetrant and SOAK that shat all over the bolts for a couple of hours. Remember, bolt heads are your friend.

Mine wasnt that hard. Didn't use any penetrating fluid, but we used a torch and no air tools.
