59 days left to finish this thing.

Ordered a pile of parts to get it running.

New oil pan/starter/alt/water pump
New trans pan/filter kit
Oil-water trans cooler
Oil-air trans cooler
Bunch of other stuff.

Here is the cooler setup. Oil to water cooler and from there into a oil to air cooler.



My cooler is a few inches shorter than this one.



Should keep everything cool running WOT.


Pulled the oil pan and replaced it along with the starter. Motor looks fantastic from the bottom end, no tarnish on the rods/cranks and no sludge in the pan. Definitely makes the 5.9 look dinky.

Using Grace Ice and Water shield for sound deadening. Bought it in a 9" x 75' roll and cut it to fit. Going to do the entire cab in it to cancel out as much road noise as possible. Will still be able to hear that Hx40 singing though.



The original plan was to use the stock pickup column shifter. Ended up being too sloppy for my liking and didnt want any problems down the road with it bumping into gear. My solution...Hurst piston grip shifter. Planning on mounting it on the dog house and using the red button on the top for the electric locker.



Also bit the bullet and bought some gauges. They are ridiculous, $250 was the absolute cheapest setup I could find. Made by Glowshift, got an EGT gauge, Trans temp, and boost gauge.



Working on hooking up steering/brakes/throttle/shifter/wiring right now. Would like to give it a fire in a week or two then lengthen the frame. So far we are on scheduled to have it finished, going to start knocking down some longs days on it.

What is it you do for a living? Just curious I'd never have the time or money for all this work. Nice job, takes a lot of motivation and determination to accomplish this stuff. Awesome.

My Father and I are professional dog trainers, we train bird dogs to hunt and handle their game(grouse and woodcock around here). We also compete on the National Circuit with a string of high power competition dogs. This takes us everywhere, north, south, east, west. My parents have their own rig and this truck is for my wife and boy. It is nothing more than a hardcore work truck, very hardcore. It will have the capabilities to stay off the grid with horse and dogs for over a week before any supplies are needed. Between the two rigs we haul around 600 gallons of water, 50-70 bales of hay, 6-7 horses, and at times close to 50 dogs. This is with 4 adults and my boy, we also carry a huge amount of tools, guns and misc supplies for on the road. Basically if SHTF and you see this coming down the road, make friends, or start running.

Steering and brakes are pretty close to being finished. Working on the throttle next, thinking about building a wider pedal for the brake also.

Was talking to my Dad earlier and he said "go look in the race car stock, I think there is some big hose line out there." Turns out there was about 20ft of it. Would like to use it as transmission line. It is rated for 300 degrees and 350psi, dimensions are -12 AN with an ID of .688in. Will have to go through all the fittings to see what I've got but is there any reason not to use this line? Looks the exact same as what is currently on it and the fittings are very close in size.

I like the idea of the ice and water shield for sound dampening, gotta be cheaper than the real stuff. How well do you think it will work?

Is that the same as tar paper? It's the same stuff but the sound deadening is a little higher quality iirc

Thinking it will work pretty good. Read about other people using it with good success. It is not tar paper, one side is Vycor rubber and the other is tar, no granulation. Bought a 9" x75' roll for $40 and it will cover almost the entire cab.

Sooooo, thinking about what to do with the dash cluster. All the gauges will be aftermarket except the speedo, and will probably have to pick up a fuel gauge. Anyways got to thinking since my gauges wont be around the dash there will be a big void.

I am the first one to say this isnt quite my thing but figured maybe give it a try. My idea is to get a larger GPS unit with a backup camera. Make a bezel for it to mount into the dashboard and wire it for key "on" operation. Electronic shit really isnt my thing but I know that I dont want anything wifi capable and it to be as stand alone as possible.

Found this 7" unit with a back up camera. We buy a lot of Garmin supplies for our bird dogs and they make pretty decent stuff. I know there are some gurus out there that know a lot more than me. What do you think?

That a nice looking GPS unit, and with the built in backup camera would be a nice option... only issue might have is the length of the backup camera cable? I see they sell an optional one on the webpage, but its only like 6 feet long.
