Since I've had a lot of people unsure about if they are able to come or not... My cell phone is 330-415-2929 and is always on. Also, just to note I plan on being at the Farm from 10am-7-8pm on Saturday and Then from Noon till however long it takes to get my truck done on Sunday. So keep those time perameters in mind. Also give me a call when you are on your way just so I can plan accordingly.

So far:
Dustin Saturday 3pm
Hitch Saturday 2pm

Maybes:
CCHSBUZZ Sunday ???
Vista 4.0 Sunday ???
Evilclown312 Sunday ???


Also: Anyone have any 31 in tires or close to that that has decent tread on them? Im looking to get a set pretty cheap that can hold me over till I can get some new ones....let me know what you got.

its 2:38 and I am kinda stuck. The only things I have acomplished today is not finding Hitch's dog, installing the fuel filler extension, and installing the manual shift extension. I was unsuccessful in my attemps to gain help for today and am waiting to see if Hitch may be able to come back out and help. I cannot locan the "middle cab grounds," firewall ground, or know what to do with the radiator corre support something or other. sooo... I may be driving a half raised truck until next weekend.

the cab grounds, there are one under each door on the outside of the frame

the firewall ground is by the windshield wiper motor

the radiator: you use two more of the ground extensions for the firewall ground (the kit comes with 3 identical brackets, one for the ground and two for the rad) then two of the rectangle aluminum pieces for the bottom and you have to V in the one side for it to clear the core support pinch welds.

How far are you from detroit area?

Im in Akron,OH so we're talking northeast OH. several hours away. Ill have to wait until maybe wednesday night... The kicker to this whole thing is that Hitch brought his dogs and one ran off... we've spend significant time looking for them. Today he has been busy making signs calling around amoung other various family stuff. I was hoping someone would be able to make it out but Ill just have to sport the half-lifted look for a while. ha.

I dont think it will be toomuch of a problem. We can use the two jacks and if that doesnt work I can get Denny and Alex to come over for a few minutes to help muscle it up. Im more concerned with loosening everything up that needs to be loosened up.
