jeepfan93 is on a distinguished road

Na I bought the truck the way it is a few months ago. Just a neglected truck that's all. I did the rear shocks, and both U-joints on the rear driveshaft, vibration seems to be gone. Working on the front end now, changing shocks which seems to have lead to just about removing the front axle due to every F-ing bolt (with the exception of the panhard bar bolt) breaking. so the spring/ shock retaining plate all 6 bolts bolts for both sides, most of the sway bay bar bolts broke. I have everything prepped drilled and tapped to go back together, so no biggie, just time and a pain in the ass.
On the body lift thing, there's also an extension for the gas filler. SHould be a smooth transition depending how much more shi* breaks due to rust. Thanks for the answer on the bed mounts.
