basically i have a socket set, vise grips, screw drives some blocks of wood, wrenches, a tiny floor jack and some thick skin. i decided to just go for it. i grew up with a mechanic for a dad (we arent close anymore so he is of no help) so i know my way around a car, and i just said eff it im gonna do this. in the rain in my apartment parking lot hahahaha

hey eric im doing mine on a hill with a side slope hahaha we will be fine at your place.

you could lift all 4 tires off the ground with 2 stands and a jack, lift the back axle up by the pumkin then stick a jack under each side of the axle, then jack the front up in the middle.

i understand jeff, i appreciate the thought. its getting close, im gonna have it done tomorrow, its not an option lol

and eric, one day would be possible especially if you get the ball rolling the day before.

Yeah, my old man is a mechanic too. He'll probably supervise when I get the truck back together, lol.

He's actually been a ton of help with my rigs. We both tore the engine down in my Ranger, which made it way less frustrating. Hell, he's pretty much helped me with everything on the Ranger, lol.
