Looks like a fun camping trip. Sucks you are looking to sell it but that happens.

Well I realized how much the truck meant to me so I'm keeping it. It has 1ton leafs under it now to help with the weight.


On another note...
DELJAC, what did you use to paint your bumper black? I think I have asked you this before I just can't remember. It's the last bit of chrome on the front and I want to paint it black..

well i finally have something to update to the thread lol

had an 11hr day with PUDDY at my work working on my truck.

started with removing motor mounts. and oil pan gasket.
ended up picking motor as high as we could get it (and i have the 3" bodylift too) to drop the oil pan. unbolted pan and oil pump. tried our best to get it out without removing the y pipe but no luck. didnt want to chance breaking a stud on the exhaust so just cut the section out that ran under the motor to give enough room to remove oil pan. once pan was out sandblasted and found a hole, so welded the hole up. painted the oil pan and cleaned the oil pump. re assembled the pump/pan using a new felpro gasket.
installed the new super duty motor mounts from bronco grave yard and a new transmission mount again.
filled with the cheapest oil i could find to do a flush and moved truck across the shop to the welder so i could weld the exhaust back together.
man i love the sound with basically open headers.....
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uZPKvIV9Tzk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

re welded the exhaust and its good as new now.

BIG thanks to PUDDY for all the help today.
get to do it all over again to his truck in a couple weeks lol

few pics

Exactly. I wouldn't have tackled this on my own. Not until I had a garage at home and can take me a few days to do it or just pull the motor lol

Did you have to drill a hole in the headliner? Where did you get the screws?

Thanks

Yes I drilled a hole in the headliner and in the inner florid skin for the nutsert.

The nuts were like a rivet tighten them and it fastens it self to the sheet metal. Had them at work
