Sounds like a plan, i'll get some holes cut in it at work and try again!

I got the plate drilled and flush up against the frame and I ran out of stuff to do until i can weld.. I haven't started the truck in a while and made the mistake of starting it in gear. Normally not a problem, but it was on jack stands [smiley=angry.gif]

now i have a bent hood, and a hole in my radiator.. that'll keep me busy ::)

Ya they tend to lurch forward if in gear! Lucky no one got hurt at least

My guess would be the hood was open when it was on jack stands an when it fell all sh.........t hit the fan! :o

it all smashed into a table saw, the hood got pinned and crumpled a bit, it bent back ok though. the radiator is the main problem.

does anyone know what year/model range i can pull a radiator from?

Anything would work long as its big enough an u can mod up the mounts but if u stick with Yota that would b easyest !
I would try to find the year you have in the 1st gen but I think you could use one all the way up to a 95 Yota ! They get a little bigger after 89 by a couple inches an the mounts are bit different but they would work! The inlet an outlet is shifted left to right a bit after 89 also. But some longer hose fixes that! That's bout all I know on that [smiley=happy.gif]

Sounds good, i'll head out to the junk yard next weekend and get some parts! Last night I got a 95 dodge dakota for free so i'll be picking up some stuff for that too
