    Took a little longer then I was hoping, but that is what happens when you do the swap by yourself and run into all sorts of little problems. :grin: The truck fired right up once I was able to get all of the air out of the new fuel line and filter. Keep an eye out for the mods that are to follow. :cool1:

    The biggest pain for me was the new polyurethane engine mounts I installed, I could not get the mounts to line up for anything, had to use a BFH to get everything lined up. I removed my front clip, removed the body mount bolts and jacked the body up about 6" in the front; then installed the engine, tranny, tcase, and the exhaust as far back as the tcase in one shot. The whole swap was done by myself, except for my cousin helping me guide everything into place.

    Now I just need to weld the exhaust back together; that mother is loud without mufflers. :D
