My truck is finally showing signs of life

well as you might know i wrecked my truck in october,and they totaled it because the frame was bent,then i straightened the frame but my new bed would line up,so i pulled the cab and found it was bent under the cab so,i had a extra frame and other goodies from my parts rig,so then i had 2 trucks to build one sweet one so i poured the frame and stuff,now i ordered a 4inch suspension lift,and all im really waiting on now is to install the lift when i get it, paint my bed (its white the cab is purple)install the motor and bolt the cab and bed down ,and i shall be set,its been kinda hard cause im only 17,and i worked all summer to buy it & mod it then i make a bad mistake then i lose it,i was glad nobody was hurt,but it was the day before homecoming,srry im kinda ranting ill post some pics as i get stuff done

Takedown, I'm proud of you. There's not many 17 year olds that would do what your doing. My first car was a wreck and I had to repair it myself with my uncle telling me what to do next and how to do it. I was lucky to have an uncle that had a auto repair shop and took time to teach me and then hired me to work for him.

Do you have a frame rack or how did you straighten your frame?

Please don't get in a hurry and not do it right.

Glad to hear you are doing it yourself. You will appreciate it so much more when you are done.
