    Been a little while. Had some hold ups, but the truck is coming along.

    Large C&R trans cooler in front of a CBR race-class radiator w/ dual 16in fans.

    It was a snug fit, but the power steering reservoir fit perfectly!

    The steering setup only needs a few more lines made and then its ready to go. We just finished up the steering shaft supports today but I forgot to get updated pics.

    The bumper is going to be a tight valance with RG style smasher up front.

    Still waiting on wiring before the truck heads out for aluminum work,* but here's some update pics for those of you not following on ig (these pics are much better res anyways).

    Cut the old dash out to make room for the huge air filter and a new dash.

    We also welded in an air purge valve to get all the air out of the cooling system

    IMG_2415_zps077e4de9_dc6b728f5c22052428cd26f0c03ca525fad17439.jpg

    After we get the front drive shaft figured out and in we'll build a skid plate to protect the exhaust and trans pan

    IMG_2419_zps03a86572_ebb80b9f9bba54ef347201559a18b89fc9835d75.jpg

    Cleaned up the fuel lines to avoid the drive shafts and exhaust

    Any pictures of how you are getting the driveshaft to the front diff? You said you have to pull the engine to take the 3rd out so I figured it would be pretty tight.

    No pics yet. I will most likely be notching the trans pan. And we no longer have to pull engine to get the front 3rd out. I also notched and welded the oil pan so the 3rd comes right out. MUCH better setup
