I have never seen a truck get pushed around by a Bobcat like that before.

I can't tell you how fortunate you are to have that garage space and those resources to work on the truck like that. This is one of the reasons why I've always avoided 'wheeling' that hard. I can't afford to be w/o the truck, even for a day or two. And I don't have those resources, so I'd be paying someone else for the repairs. Can you imagine the labor bill alone?! Be sure and thank your old man, or whoever that garage belongs to profusely!

ZachB.. Honestly.. Ditch the flairside. Not to sound rude, but it makes your ride look.. Have someone photochop a regular bed on it, see the results
