I got the body off the pan. Took a little longer than I thought. I had all the bolts out but the rear end wouldnt budge. After sloder inspection I found that one of the previous owners had welded the body to the pan in two places in the rear. A few minutes with an air chisel took care of that and the body came right off.

I need to get floorpans. I saw some sites advertising heavy duty 18 gauge off road floorpans. A these worth the extra money or are the standard pans adequate?

I say get standard pans and then put a skid plate on the bottom. But that's just my opinion.

New standard pans will work just fine. The HD pans can be a pain to manipulate into fitting sometimes. As long as you dont jump the car and land dead center on a rock the standard pans will hold up just fine. If your worried about rust, just bedliner the pan when your done putting them in.

Do you coat both sides of the floorpan with bedliner. How about the rest of the frame and front beam?

I did some of the herculiner on my pan awhile back. Then, I picked up some of the dupli-color liquid bedliner and liked it a WHOLE lot better. The Herculiner was very coarse and abrasive- hurts to scrape your knuckles on. The Dupli-color went on very smooth and had a very nice finish when done. Very cool stuff. Wish I'd have done the inside of the car with it instead of the abrasive stuff.

Just my observation. Hope that helps.
