Re: Pulling the Bed and Welding my BROKEN FRAME ?????
When Pulling the bed, have a guy underneath to undo the bolts then hit them with a hammer up, and a guy in the bed to pull up the bolts.
i found a good way to lift the bed, is to get a tractor with a loader right behind the truck. Then where the holes in the bed rails are, run bolts through the holes in them, and hook log chaings on to the bolts, then just lift it up with the loader. we set my bed on a old running gear, although if you have 2 or 3 sterdy saw horses that would work too.
welding the fram your on your own, all i know is that to much heat will weaken it all together. I would try welding straps to the frames or something to stregthen it all the more, actually if it was my truck i would take it to a welding shop, it will cost alot, but at least you will know its been done right
