you will probably want to make some gap fillers, other then that everything else is included in the kit. The only tool i would recommend you getting would be a 12" pipe wrench to hold the cab bushings, so they dont turn when you are removing the bolts. btw you will probably want someone else to assist in the install.

no need torch and heat the bottom of the washer where the cab bolt is in the center heat it good and hot or till you smell rubber then air impact it out easy as pie cab bolts take us like 5 min...

impact gun torch and an asortment of sockets and wrenches
