    Time to buy your own welder. Opens up a world of possibilities.

    I don't really have money for one. I don't even know the differences between the types. And I have zero experience welding. I certainly wouldn't want to have my first weld on something that requires good welds.

    A $400 lincoln 140 will do pretty much everything youd want truck wise. As far as using a "squirt gun" goes just watching a few tutorials on youtube will get you headed in the right direction.

    Check craigslist aswell. Your sure to find some cheap ones.

    So MIG is the way to go then? That's what I recalled reading, but I wasn't sure. $400 isn't a small amount of money for me. That's the kind of cost I have to save up for, and I am already starting at saving for my lift. Really not looking forward to buying that, but it is much needed and will be well worth it.

    CL is great, but the thing is that I know absolutely nothing about welders, so I wouldn't know what to look for in one. I could be looking at a POS and not know it.

    I use YT and instructional articles articles for pretty much everything I do on my truck. I'd be lost without them lol
