    Also these are just temporary. I'll have air bumps by the end of the year

    Well @ktmoutfront has me worried about my straps. So I have another set on order, going to double them up.

    Ignore the tshirtd they were for protecting the Hiems when welding.

    I painted things ...


    Wiring mostly done, brakes and fuel lines plumbed.

    Have to do trans lines then put the core support and radiator on. I ordered the conversion joint and new unjoints for the front and rear shafts.


    In the home stretch.

    Got the core support with rad mounted, trans lines run, hydro lines run, and filled. Tried to fire it yesterday and it looks like i'm 180 out. Fireballs out the exhaust. I'll retime it tonight and hopefully be good to go.

    Got the truck fired and hopefully fixed my brake leak. Have to mount the power steering resi, connect the trans and transfer case linkage, and try to figure out exhaust routing.

    Need a cv shaft in the rear or limiting bump to 10 inches. Got most the exhaust figured out.

    Decided against spending money on a fancy drive shaft. Going to strap it at 10" of travel using TSC axle straps. Spending 20 bucks sounds better than 80 for other straps. Still working on exhaust which I hope to mostly finish tonight as long as the kids stay asleep for me. Coming up on crunch time.

    It drove for a bit then this happened. Have lots of little stuf todo. And decide if I'm gonna run it in the dunes. Really not happy with how much the rear shaft vibrates.

    But overall happy for it to be out of the shop
