YES! im excited.

well i got a call a few minutes ago and my truck body/frame is straight and ready to be picked up for a grand total of $330. I didnt think that was too bad.

The left side rail was bowed(sp?) up in the center where the spring bent. It spent 3.5 hours on the frame rack/jig.

Next on the list is Driveshaft issues, then wheel alignment.

Anyways on to regular life.

That's pretty cheap....my buddy had to pay 800 bucks when he slid over a curb once, so it sounds like you made out!

You're lucky you're downsouth. There's nowhere to bend frames where i am so sadly it'd cost 1500 bucks just to transport my truck to get fixed! 300 bucks is an awesome price.

Didnt that throw off all the stuff you just welded back on? having it bent back straight after you put all the suspension back together straight.

It's coming along man, you're more patient than I am. I think if it were my truck I woulda dropped it off in the woods somewhere, layed it on it's side and report it stolen lol.

Only after you rip off the goodies of course.
