Nice start no doubt.......Hey J....are you going to be replacing the chrome from it?? Will you be selling any of it?? If you are, please PM me, I need both sides and the 3 rear pieces.

Also, I'm getting ready to do the body bushings/mounts. If I pull the bumpers and unbolt them, How high can I lift the body off of the frame without disconnecting anything????

thanks in advance!!

Already got new chrome front to back and sold the other stuff a few months ago, sorry man.

On replacing the body bushings.... after you pull the bumpers, you need to disconnect the steering column at the rag joint (2 bolts).... unhook the ground straps (mounted from the frame to the bodymount at firewall area, can be seen in the engine compartment), and unhook the ground wire to the gas tank sending unit.... and thats it, lift off as high as you want to!
(Dont forget to drain your coolant and unhook your radiator hoses, and you may have to either take your fan shroud off or unbolt the fenders at the core support, depending on how high you want to lift the body).

If all you are doing is replacing the bushings, just jack up one side of the body under the rocker panel (as long as they arent rotted) and replace the whole side at once. ;)
