    I will try it on the frame.
    My rockers and cab corners are what they are...finding a 03-06 never touched with good cab corners and rockers is impossible.
    Some things on cerian models have things they are famous for...rather rust or transmissions or et etc.
    Its on me to pressure wash the frame and coat it while its torn apart.

    We took body shop together in highschool and he was like having another teacher...he grew up and learned from his dad early on so he was way ahead on us.
    He does quite a few full restos as well..
    He was my best man also so i am hoping for buddy discount.
    Prolly wont happen.
    He will call and say...your bucket of bolts is done...lol.
    His typical response.

    This week it should be done...I am getting itchy to have it back.
    Of course the first set of bumper brackets they sent were for a fleet side and not a sportside.
    And of course the right ones were on backorder....It's always something.
