    Got some stuff knocked off my Moab prep list. Picked up two more bottles from the local secondhand store for the washer fluid reservoir relocation project. My tire makes contact with it in the stock location at the front of the passenger wheel wheel. I ended up using the one on the right, which holds two quarts!

    I got things secured to the Bedslide that have been rolling around for a while. Hi-Lift bolted to the side, spare tire strapped down, and shovel mounted to toolbox with Quick Fists.

    65 qt RTIC cooler secured with lashing straps to the Bedslide-

    Tools and recovery gear organized!

    Drilled a hole to fit the pump, which has its own grommet. I am going to fit the bottle behind the air box and between the power steering fluid reservoir, so I whipped up this tray out of some scrap metal.

    Painted. With thick enough steel, the tab on the front corner is all that is needed to mount this. With two quarts of fluid combined with the pump and bracket, it doesn't weigh more than 5 lbs.

    [​IMG]


    This is how the tray sits-

    Installed! Tube is shortened and reattached, wiring is rerouted, and the wires for the low fluid idiot light have been clipped. No light on the dash.

    The bottle sits a little higher than most things in the engine bay. I stuck my phone inside and closed the hood to show how much room there is.

    I tore another CV boot, so I pulled my axles and rebooted them with Bates Porche 930 boots. I had them on my stock CVs and they were great... I didn't tear one in 5 years. I also built my spare. I don't have a comparison photo but they're about double the size of the stock inner boots.

    [​IMG]



    Added ditch lights. Not sure that I'm a fan of how they look, but I need to get them wired and give them a shot. Also added amber covers to my LED fogs.

    [​IMG]



    Pulled my J-shift transfer case to install the FROR twin stick. I wish I did it when I installed the case the first time, but I was on a time crunch. This is the writeup I used - https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/clints-1997-reg-cab-build.280433/page-13

    interlock pin has to be removed to allow the two shift forks to move independently-

    [​IMG]

    The overlapping tab on the far right has to be ground off-

    [​IMG]

    Shifters on to make sure it's all working like it should-

    [​IMG]

    Used a snowmobile swaybar from my scrap pile to extend the shifters 6" to line up with the tray in the doublecab center console-

    [​IMG]

    I got another junkyard console because I hacked up the last one. Pretty happy with how the finished product turned out.

    Got some wiring to do Friday and I'm ready for Rock Therapy.

    That console turned out looking great.

    Hmmm, I'll have to try tightening that bolt like you did to see if that helps.

    @seanpistol is Mr. Productivity. Knocking out all kinds of tasks.

    I'm highly impressed you rebooted all three when only one was torn.

    What's the benefit of these over stock? I still need to get my J-shift case installed..

    Edit"The Twin-Stick allows the use of two-wheel drive low range, and a true neutral. As well as the ability to shift-on-the-fly, while in low range, from 2wd to 4wd and back easily," :eek::eek::eek: OH!!

    SOLD!!! New owner is in Salt Lake and intends to carry on with the build.


    Here's the new truck -

    [​IMG]Untitled by Sean Kaldhusdal, on Flickr

    [​IMG]Untitled by Sean Kaldhusdal, on Flickr

    [​IMG]Untitled by Sean Kaldhusdal, on Flickr

    2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel
    100 hp injectors
    Edge programmer
    intake, straight pipe
    NV5600 6 speed with South Bend dual disc clutch
    Raptor lift pump
    1/2" fuel lines
    4.5" Top Gun Customz long arm lift
    37x12.5x17 Nitto MTs
    Dana 60 front Dana 80 rear
    4.10 gears
    3rd gen brakes
    new leather seats
    I'm sure I'm forgetting things...

    The guy I bought it from is a friend of mine. He's super meticulous and a super skilled mechanic. Everything is rebuilt or new on it. With the programmer turned all the way up it dynoed just under 500 horsepower and 1100 foot pounds- she is FAST!

    I need to re-paint the hood and roof, retrofit some projectors, and I'm going to swap the tires for a set of Toyo R/Ts with the Mud and Snow rating. There won't be a build thread for this one.
