It's body lift time!

Just working on the bed tonight, took out the toolbox and the bedliner, which wasn't as much as a pain as I thought. I am now a firm believer in air tools though, having a impact saved me so much work. Pulled off the bed power washed the frame down. Waiting for that to dry then I'll spray it with some Rustolem and put it all back together! I'll go in to more detail on stuff I found that helped me etc. later. And of course I have to throw in a pic

def a good idea to do your underbody cleaning and painting now

I just did my frame and axles about a week ago and it sucked crawling around underneath everything

what tires are you going with after the lift is done?

Yep! I should have done one, just didn't. lol. 1" is really simple, but again, hardest thing is getting the darn cab bolts loosened, just like the 3".
