450 seems a little high. you should be able to find em cheeper then that. i hear of people picking them up for around 200 and i kno where one is right now for 100. i think i might pick that one up and sell it at a swap meet.
More work on the truck today! one frame rail was bent in just a little bit. i got pictures but no time to post today. the leaf spring shackles are off and so is the shock mount. i pulled all the wires though the cab and cleaned the firewall off.
