I guess you could start by measuring the frame end to end diagonally to see if its out of square then maybe lay it down on a flat level floor and measure places side to side to see if the measurements are the same and just a real good eyeballing. I strongly believe there is no need to box these frames unless you C notch the rear or do a Mustang IFS in front , but for a 4x4 no boxing is needed. Three years or seven years good things take time. Iv'e had my 57 15 years and its got a long way to go yet.

HaHaHaHaHa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Mikey you really bust me up sometimes. I did get some wrenches and cool shirts and a NHRA plate for the front of my truck.

How did the bear claw door latches work out for you ? Do the doors close better than with the stock latches ? Would you do bear claw latches again ?
