So few updates I got a maglight mounted in the truck (still needs batteries haha..), changed transmission fluid, almost finished my bed bob, got my CBI bumper mounted, installed 1.5" Bora spacers. (even fixed my front diff leak! was just the drain plug though haha..)
I decided on that location for the maglight because i didn't want random people on the street to be able to see i have a 30$ flashlight in my truck. Also it seems like if anyone wanted to sit back there it wouldn't get in their way very much.
No chunks of metal on the magnets at least.. unfortunately i cross threaded the drain plug and it got stuck in the pan so i couldn't tap new threads and get a new plug.. so until i get a new pan i put FIPG all over the drain plug and its held up surprisingly well so far.
First i took the bumper off, ground all the cracked bondo off, took tail lights off, and unhooked the wire from underneath the bed.
Marked 13 1/4"
Boom. Cut the frame to match the CBI bumper. I made it so the top of the bumper is almost flush with the bed. It worked out really nicely actually the bumper literally sits on the frame.
Started welding it all back together. i ran out of wire 2x times haha.. went together a lot easier than i thought it would.
Test fitting the bumper.
My neighbor suggested i use this fiberglass infused bondo. Worked really well actually.
Almost done. i finished welding the bed together just need to grind it down and finish bondo/sanding/painting. Got the bumper painted.
Then i got these in the mail..
