    :haha: Gawd she's going to crap when she sees our bank. :haha:

    I've been wanting to "test" the new fuel injection on the steeps and when my 11 year old daughters friend wanted to go for a ride in the blazer I couldn't resist.

    Wife was gone with a friend so...why not?

    It was sweet, the thing never missed a beat. :D

    Amazing difference from carburation!

    Took pics of the bank trying to show the steepness, dunno if you can really tell but my carb would flat out quit running on it.

    I'm crackin' up cause now all the kids wanna do it. :bow:

    The photo date reverts to 2K everytime I change the battery, I never correct it.

    The upper lawn is mine but I have to turn around on 'the other guys' land below me. (it's owned by a collage)

    MNorby:
    The first run on those fenders was WAY to time comsuming and I can make another set just like the ones I'm running in under 20 minutes, so when I bend em I don't worry so much.

    Yeah I am thinking I will have to cut mine like yours now. Was hoping to keep the body line but oh well, function first. Where do you have your batteries mounted?

    Stock location, on the rad support.

    Have a 2nd battery tray on the drivers side but another use for it came up. :crazy:
    Bad pic but PSC mandates 'only' using an 18" hose, so that's where it landed.

    HighJack ~ Does PSC say 18" or shorter or 18" period? I shortend mine by about 4":
    [​IMG]
    I did not get any install documentation on this setup at all..other than how to make the hose fittings work for the Ram hoses & too use a Puller/Intaller for the pump pully R&R..did you call to get this info or am I missing some paperwork?

    Same here, no paper work included at all. (kinda lame IMO)

    An everyday power steering pulley puller should work fine for ya, shouldn't need anything special.

    PSC told me "no longer than" 18" so you should be fine, my first install was on the firewall and they said it would create more heat being that far away. :dunno:

    Ya I got the pully puller deal so I am good to go there..

    Ya kinda lame they don't have at least 1 set of complete install instructions..granted every install can be different but still a standard document would be nice. However I did like the color photo pages I got showing the hosefitting install for the ram hoses..still would be WAY better if it coverd ALL the components of their kit..:crazy:
    Thanks for the reply = HighJack Off :D

    WOW!
    Ya I got two pages, 1 with the Pully puller/installer pic w/warning not to use a hammer or anything else other than a puller/installer or the warenty is void.
    The 2nd page was the hosefitting install for JUST the ram hoses.
    Maybe they are taking babysteps with their documentation :doah: For the price of their stuff you would think they would have it dialed in by now :eek1:
    Later
