First off, I took everything off of the frame and body before I split em up. So, all I had left was a empty body shell and bare frame. I did this so it would be as light as possible. I borrowed four jackstands from my bro-in-law who builds big Jeeps and 4x4's to hold the body up, they were over three feet tall when extended and heavy duty. I dropped the frame straight down to repair the body mount areas, then stripped the crap off with a wire wheel and some sanding discs on a DA. I undercoated the body and painted the frame with POR-15, then bolted the frame and body back together. The frame never left the shadow of the body.
