    Oh okay I missed that in your first post about the hex chuck/or anvil or whatever it's called. Haven't heard of that issue but it's good to know for future reference:D

    Took the dc for a good wash, got it ready to weld up. Definitely have some work ahead of me to get this thing solid again, but once done, she’ll be good for a while. Fuck is a prerunner without a box useless in fresh snow. Even locked with ice/snow tires!!:rofl:

    It's difficult to get to the front of the tank though. I used a bottle jack to open mine back up a little.

    A lot of surface rust. I’ll coat that. But definitely some gross holes.

    It was either a 2002 or 2003 SE. Had to swap out airbag units to make sure plugs worked since the ‘02 had dual stage.

    Can confirm I wasn't able to do it with a 12 ton press though.

    Hopefully the shiny new 20t does the trick tomorrow.

    Did some Light work today. I used to have some cheap halogen aux lights behind the grill but I decided to upgrade because they just weren't producing the light output I wanted (my hi-beams were brighter). I upgraded to some Hella LED spot lights. Cut the expanded metal so they would come through the grill a little bit.
