    Truck's working great. You can really tell the difference in weight. Weighed in at 5400 lbs.

    Now it's done, time to play on the trails and the computer /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    w00t! WK has always kicked a$$. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif really like the way the rear end/tube/suspension turned out... looks very tough. Nuttin like a fully trussed ff14b with coil overs! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif once I got the $, Im gonna re-o my rear suspension as a 4link with coils so I can bob the bed of my k5 Waddel style.

    Looks great!!!

    One thing I have noticed with my radiator/fans in the bed, is that on the hi-way or on roads where the speed is faster than 45, mine runs about 210, on the trail or just cruising around town it cools down to 180....The dual fans seem to pull plenty of air, but at speed, there must be some kind of high/low pressure preventing good flow through the raditor.

    BTW-How did you plumb the engine to the raditors? Mine is a 4 core aluminum racing raditor and I used aluminized exhaust pipe with raditor use to make the curves and to connect it all. No problems yet!

    Great looking truck!!

    A friend at a bending shop made the bends- I think he used exhaust pipe- 1-1/2". I'm still out on the rad. We had a 4 core but the rad shop recored it to 3 core and changed the tubing from 1/2" to 3/4". He assured me it would cool the big block better than the 4 core. Also use a Taurus fan on one side and two smaller fans on the other side. Picked up a new mechanical temp gauge this weekend. We'll see how it goes
