I use wide straps at the rear but a come along on the front. After lifting the front with a come along I used a set of straps to hold it while I lifted the motor/trans with the come along and rolled the frame out and the new one in. I have a 3" body lift but didn't want to install it yet... maybe later or maybe not...lol

Dang, Great work again... but let me get this straight, the red truck with the 98-00.5 front end is 4wd and the Grey one w/ the red front clip is 2wd flex fuel?

I agree though keep the red one it looks nice. Or you could always donate it to me

Yeah for now but that will change. First you have to understand I just don't like red trucks(sorry guys) Second the charcoal truck is 4 door. After I get it on the road I will be converting it to 4wd and probably 4.0. I know its alot of work but I am building the truck I want...for now...lol Both trucks are 2000's
