Next item on the cab to fix, this little bracket on the drivers side (front fender bolts up here) was all tore up, and had to be removed. Here is what it should look like.

And here is what's left of it. It was broke into tow peices. So, I'll be making a new one out of 16 ga. steel. But, when I removed it, I found that the rocker panel underneath it was also rotted. So, along with replacing the steel on that corner, I'll weld in a piece on this rocker section, then weld the new bracket in.

Just checking back in and looks like you had a nice score on some parts Pat. Looking at that tab on the one side, how is the other side??

Thanks guys, appreciate the comments! Neil, the other side is in good shape, luckily, so I can use it to take measurements to make the new one.

Got the drivers side vent box removed from the cab this weekend. I'll leave this off, so I can sandblast all of it when I get the cowl off. Now I can get that corner metal replaced.

Here is a shot looking into the cowl area. This is why I'm pulling the cowl, to clean up that rust, and coat everything, so it doesn't come back to bite me later!

Took the tranny and transfer case in to have them gone over. Luckily, the tranny is just fine, according to my tranny guy, he didn't have to tear it apart. The transfer case is another story. Seems the pump supply line in the tc was damaged, and it ran itself out of oil, so it's trashed. But, it will be cheaper to rebuid, than to get one out of a salvage yard, and who knows what shape those will be in, so I'm going to go ahead and get it rebuilt. So much for saving the money from the tranny rebuild!

Better to only have to rebuild one than both I guess. Transfer case shouldn't have much in it to rebuild though, would it?

Well, to get a used one, would have been around 600. To rebuild this one was 695. So, might as well get it done, and not have to possibly deal with another one that may have issues. I guess the one I have lost the tube to it's oil pickup, and ran quite a while without oil, so it was hammered.

Sounds like you are doing the right thing in getting the one that you have rebuilt. You have already 'paid' for it when you got the parts truck so it does not make any sense to buy another one and have the possibility that it needs to be rebuilt.
