Quick couple of pics. Have been very busy and not had time to do much work or post any updates. I hauled the frame home and got the body on the temporary support.

Here is a crate that a local trailer manufacturer had:

The crate modified to hold the body. Harbor Freight vehicle dollies lagged to the bottom and the crate cross braced,as well as blocked and shimmed to contact the body in more places than when it's on it's frame. The body is then lagged/bolted to the crate.

Moved the body/crate about 100' down a slight grade to a storage building to free up the lift until I can work on it again. It rolled very smooth, it just takes a little coaxing to change direction.

I should be able to post some more specifics later this week.

Can't disagree.

That is actually the 3rd crate that a buddy (he's also been working on the EX with me) and I have picked up. This company puts all of their pallets/crates out by the road. The standard pallets are gone quickly, but these are big and heavy and most people can't load or haul them. They are mostly white and red oak. The first 2 were disassembled for the wood, since we both are into woodworking too.

Does anyone have any experience with these seat heaters.
Amazon Amazon
Looking to put these on the front seats while they are out. Wanting the set with both seats on one switch and mount it next to the power point in the dash.

Thanks

Have not been able to work on the truck since I hauled the frame home and put the body in the storage building. Between getting ready for 2 trips to Texas taking those trips and doing all the normal getting ready for spring stuff, it has crept down on my list. I hope to start tearing down the Texas frame and getting it cleaned up next week. I did get the opportunity to get some pics of the more severe body rust.





Note the wiring in the next pic. This is on the very back of the truck on both sides. It is the wiring that runs up to the taillights. The loom is melted, but the wiring seems intact. Can't quite figure out what has caused it. It lines up to be just outboard of the body mount. Looks like it has been this way for a while, so I don't think it is from spraying the bolts with Aerokroil. We didn't use any heat on any of the bolts. Any ideas?





All in all it could be worse, I have seen worse. In some areas it didn't take much to protect it, ie there are 3 heat shields that are open on both sides, and the area under those shields doesn't have much rust.

may the heat from the heatshield kept that area drier, and the areas around it wet with condensation making them rust.

I don't think so, the heat shields themselves are pretty rusted. But who knows.

I might just have to put heat shields on the underneath of my entire truck.

It would not get covered in salt due to those shields
