Wow, thanks guys for the feedback!!

Cowbell, I bought the headlights off ebay for around $120 shipped. I'll see if I still have the seller name. In the meantime, try searching them out on there. I've seen them a few times.

Frankdatank, I'd be glad to help ya out but.....Florida's a long ways away. Haha, I sure wish I lived in FL right now because it's 10* outside here!

Well, I learned that when you raise the bed floor it is very important to make sure you have a tailgate in place and all the gaps are good and lined up. I didn't do that and ended up spending a week getting the driver bed side corrected.

I tried to just crank the box side over with wratchet strap but it didn't correct anything because it was just pulling the bed floor over. So I made a gusset and welded the bed floor to the pass side of the box. This held the floor in place.

Then I hooked the strap between the top of the dr bed side to the bottom of the pass side. The gap was only excessive at the top of the dr side. I cranked it straight and welded in the gusset on the dr side. Problem solved. Now the pics....

I cut down some 16ga to make the filler for the rear of the bed.

Oh, and it doesn't end there. I'm going to add a little "wow" factor to it that I copied from a friend who originally did it. Pics to follow...

Actually I texted and asked him for permission. He was cool with it. He suggested I cut out the whole panel and make the FORD sunk in but there wasn't enough room. I told him that I promised not to show it off on RPS. Lol

I was actually talking to my body guys about raising the bed floor when they fixed the rest of it, and mentioned that to them. I probably won't do it though.

Don't have the tools, i.e. welder, and the city has already been on me. Apparently, I can't do "major repairs" in my driveway. That I paid for. That is behind the house, out of view. Easier to take it up there, and do it in their shop, use their tools, and let them finish and paint it.

You don't live in Garland. The "code enforcement" here sucks hairy herpes infested goat testicles.
