First thing i did was take off all factory decals.. Took off milk jugs if applicable.. Then took off side step and put 2" budget boost. I will be selling mine soon.. I am putting a 4" on next week

Here's my frame repair with SafeTcap repair pieces
The Drivers frame rail

Plasma cutting the bottom 1'' of rust off


The rust inside the frame


Test fit, had to do some light trimming to get it in the correct position


Burning it in
Cleaning up the welds before paint

Painted and ready to hit the trails!

All in all It was an easy install, the driver side fit better than the passenger (no extra trimming). We did trim the inside of the driver rail down to reuse the factory holes for the fuel and brake line clips.

Pulled throttle body and iac and iac housing and cleaned it well. Idles so much better and way better throttle response. Probably never been cleaned since it was put on in 97 lol

You don't have a hood loop to tie the windshield too?

I did but as soon as I tightened the strap the loop snapped off so I had to improvise. It works for now.
