Okay.

So, so far I need to bring a box of grade 8 bolts and some paint.

Anything else?


Chris has the compressor, Jason has an impact gun, grinder, and breaker bars, John is bringing the rear frame section....let me know of anything I can bring to help. I don't have very many of my own tools, just a starter set from Craftsman.


Again guys, thank you so much! I really appreciate it!

Also, how much would new leafs run me at a JY? Say if I picked up Sport Trac leafsprings or stiffer Ranger leafsprings for the truck? Mine are stock and starting to sag after 155,000 miles....

Compressor is ready to go bud. Only thing maybe somebody could bring is some better impact sockets. I dont have many metric for my gun. We should have plenty of space to do this outside of the garage.

I think we have it covered. If we all bring hand tools and grinders we are set. Don't forget a 13 & 18 deepwell, those are fords favorite sizes...lol Maybe a drill bit to fit the grade 8 bolts...

John, that will no longer be necessary. Thank you so much. I got it welded this morning, it needed to be done ASAP and it wasn't safe to drive on.

I'm lazy, C&P'd this from the meet thread.....

Alright guys, I got my frame welded and plated and welded some more this morning. Save us all alot of time and effort next weekend. Plus it wasn't safe to drive at the moment. Got it done for $200 at a place my neighbor works at. Looks to me like a real solid job. Again guys, I thank you all for the support and the help you would have lended.

And uh, lunch will STILL be on me? Okay. I'll buy the pizza and soda, you all can supply your own beer I'm only 20 lol.

Here's the only crappy cell phone pic I have....

Well let me know what you want to do....most of the money I have will be going towards the frame repair ($200), gas from now til after the meet ($200) and lunch for all you guys which should consist of a few pizza's and soda. I can barter with you lol, my Westin bar w/ lights is up for grabs, i got the stock cd/radio player, the stock 3rd brake light (white and red), and maybe some cash if i can swing it.....who knows. It's up to you John.

John, you got yourself a deal. I'm going to need some help disconnecting the wiring from the lights as I am not electrical savvy at all. You can keep the lights on it as well, they're cheap Wal-Mart ones that haven't failed in 2 years of running them every night.

It should fit right in your bed, the front bed bolts are part of the front half of the frame.
