      Yes I still have AC, but the outer vents had to go for the A pillar. And in order to keep the windshield defrost, I couldn't have a tube crossing behind the dash.

      Got more pictures today. Aside from a new windshield getting installed, trimming the rear fender sheet metal up to the tub, and installing he rear shocks and shock boots in the interior,I think this thing is done.

      Nice and clean. I really like how the pillars are tied into the cage and how clean it looks.

      That rear end isn't going in for a while yet. Those 35 spline 3rd members are expensive! Unless my current axle breaks on me, I don't want to set up the new one for leaf springs, just to cut it all off when this gets links.

      dude that cage looks so much like mine, it's awesome! I like how yours is tied into the body better and you were able to keep all your interior panels. Mines all gutted out.

      I also like how you when around the wheel well rather than through it like i did.


      Are you going to make it down for the EF Veteran's Day Weekend meet at truckhaven?

      I also had to lose the side vents on both trucks, and I don't have the cross bar behind the dash either for the same reason.

      Little update, this thing drinks coolant like crazy, so it's just been sitting since I got it back home. After much deliberation between just fixing the head gaskets, swapping in a different motor, pulling this one for a full rebuild or maybe even doing a mild motor upgrade, this weekend I'm taking it to a mechanic friend to just take care of the head gaskets for me, and tackle a few other little things to hopefully get it reliably road worthy again. As great as it sounds to add more power, smog legality is still important to me, so I'm going to keep it simple for now. Aside from the disappearing coolant, it still runs incredibly well and has never even hinted at overheating.

      I agree. When I opened mine up for power upgrades I could never get it to be as reliable. But I also have no idea what I'm doing either. :D
