Re: wire feed welding vs. truck computer
Can't say for sure as I'm no expert. However my brother in-law helped me remove my rear drop down brace on my 93 GEO Tracker so I could install a trailer hitch. Two of the bolts holding the bar where messed up, and the Tracker has a completely box and sealed frame. We had to cut off the rear caps, and heat the nuts to get the bolts out. One of the nuts was busted off so we wire welded (flux wire) the nut back on, plus welded both end caps back on. We never disconnected the battery and had no problems. I also had to have a body shop replace the front cross tube member, it also was a weld job. Don't know if they disconnected the battery or not. If you have a body shop near you, why don't you check with them?
