I need to get a lot of body work done, for mostly rust, and wondering if it’s worth lifting the body off the frame and cleaning up frame. Anyone with any experience on the subject? How difficult is it? Is it worth it?

I'm actually going to do just that here soon. I've seen people make crib blocks or use elephant stands then roll the frame out. Keeping the body on 6x6s.

It may not be an issue now due to age, but depending on the trim of the truck, the bumper caps may still be attached to the body, besides the frame bolts. Many have tried to take the bodies off, only to forget those pesky bumper straps still attached. :D

Lol. I just did that when removing my front bumper to straighten it. I’m like, “What the heck? Why is it just HANGING there?!?! Oh…”
