I finally got the regulator bracket made and mounted up. lines are connected and the solenoid is wired to a rocker switch. I now have to fill the propane tank, head to the salvage yard and pick up my taurus cooling fan. change some fluids and it should be running like a champ!

made a panel to mount the radio, arb compressor switch, air toggle switch and a winch control panel in the near future. I also installed the arb compressor behind the driver's seat, off of the floor. I am going to wire it up this weekend.

well so much for having it running this weekend. After filling the cooling system, I found a crack in the intake manifold and it leaks like crazy. I have another intake though. Now I have to take it off and replace it.

Well I believe I have the leak taken care of. I also am using the viscous belt driven fan and shroud instead of an electric one for now until all the gremlins are dealt with. I am going to fill the propane tank tomorrow and fire it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ran it today almost all day and used 1/2 a tank of propane. It stats within 1 second. Idles great at extreme angles, I am sold on propane. I should have done this years ago! Fixed the brake line, and now the rest of the build will continue.
1st on the list is replacing the completely burnt clutch and instaling the dual transfer case. Then build the font axle and then install the winch.

Here's the Ballistic Fab battery box mounted up. I am running the cables under the cab and through grommets this weekend. After my dislocated thumb heals.
The battery box looks sweet and it pretty heavy duty.

Default Truggy?

I like yotas, and you are doing a good job cleaning it up and adding some good parts, but It is not a Truggy by just taking off and running it without a bed. I don't see the uggy on your Toyota P/U .
