Weekend goals, finish both 4 links, finish weld everything, gussets, and measure for driveshafts.

If that gets done, I will install my exhaust and start painting stuff and put my axles back together....

I am taking the night off as well, must be the weather but do not feel like it today. And the weekend is going to be nice.

Ok, I lied. Went out and finished mounting my fans to the new fan Shroud Shirley made for me, then started on my remote fuel fill....

Some progress

Remote fuel fill done, just need to install the tank and hose




Pic of the sump guard



Rear 4 link done, turned out good. Just gotta finish weld and make a filler peice to flatten the frame out in front of the rear lower links.




Had to notch the rear crossmember for the upper links. I have 6" of up travel, gotta figure out what I'm doing for bump stop



How it sits now

Thanks guys.


Ugh, working in a small garage sucks. Looking back at the pictures I see the my coil bucket is crooked... Didn't see that the 5 times looking at it before I welded it. Hmmm, that's gonna bug me.

Did you get that hose separately or was it part of the fuel cell kit? I was looking for some of that hose a while back.

I made all the parts, got the hose at family farm and home. I hope it fits, it's a little small but that's all I could find local

looks really good. one thing to think of (if you have not yet) would be a bar for harness'. I ended up taking out the xcab windows and ran a bar from side to side so I had something to connect each harness to so I could scrap the OE seatbelts.

wasn't sure if you were going that route or already something on the inside.
