Charles and all,
Here are the pics i promised (2 months ago) of the completed replacement. The shop and i meet 1/2 way on the cost over the original quote and he did a great job! it took him twice as long as he estimated. He will probably make it up when I ask him to do my footwell repairs
Charles thank you very much for your part and help. Now my 20 month old can spend time in the truck again instead of asking wheres dadda's truck.
Next step is to paint the rest of the frame with KBS chassis system and most likely waxoyl the vehical.
