It wasn't a lot of fun. If my back felt better it wouldn't have been quite as bad, and I'd be over there doing more today.

If I were to do it again, I wouldn't even think about trying to remove them. I'd just cut them. I know I'm glad they are out.

I had to work this morning, but I got the fuel hoses done this afternoon, put the tires on and set it down. I combined the junkyard dually hoses and mine and made 2 out of what I had. The junkyard ones needed some help. I took a couple pictures of it sitting on the floor. It's such a mess in there I can't get a real good picture. Dad got all the stripes and moulding removed off the box.





I need to finish up mounting the cab and box next. I can't wait to get it painted!

Thanks Todd and Nate! I think it's going to look real good when done too. I'm just going to get the box painted to match. As much as I'd love to, I can't afford to paint the whole truck. The box is going to have to wait until sometime this summer to get painted the way it is.

Well it looks amazing! I really like the proportions of a ECLB, 4x4, dually. It really looks great.

It's gonna look sweet when you get it painted Darin! How do the 265s work on the duals? How thick of spacers did you end up using?

I think it will too Bill. They are 2 inch spacers, and I have just under 1 1/2 inches between the tires.

Sounds like the hard part is done! Glenn, im still trying to picture how you removed the bushing with a chain and a jack. If its not to big of trouble could you post a pic of how you had it set up? I keep reading your instructings and i cant figure it out haha. Im sure once i see it, it will make sense. Im not doing mine soon but just was curious.
