    Obviously mine is an extra cab, but with the 2x4 structure I built under it 4 people can lift it without any problems. Actually when I did mine , I did 99% of it myself. Jack and block jack and block. Just take your time and as Xs said use some common sense.

    Thanks for all the replies! This is good to know because most of the time I don't have any friends around to help and I plan to do this after I retire so there will be even fewer friends available to help. I suppose it would be easier if the engine is pulled out first so that you don't have to lift the cab up and over the engine?

    Pull the bed (can easily be pulled by yourself) then jack and block the cab until it'll clear the rear tires with boards under the cab supported by dunage then roll the chassis out from under it.

    Ok it's been a while since I updated.Things have been going much slower than I wanted, but that's how things go. Life always seems to get in the way :lol: So I finally got my 4 link done with the air bags.[​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    My original intent was to mount my air tank and compressors in front of the axle but the more I looked at it I decided to move it to the back. Also I was going to use my original gas tank but then decided to go with a fuel cell. So it all looks like this.

    When it came to the front, I broke down and got some KBS (Cando) control arms. I really like these, they clean the front up nice .

    Had to fab some shock mounts.

    Wow ! Three years later and I'm finally back on this. I have the bed done, I raised the bed so there's no hump it's just nice and flat. Only 6" deep, but flat. I'm in the prosses of painting, got all the body panels off hanging in my garage. Painted some today and hopefully will get the rest done tomorrow. I'm stoked, when it goes together now it will stay together :runaway:. Now I need to figure out how to post pics! I used photobucket before.
