Just finished my friends truck after his accident, i picked up a 20 gallon fuel cell for 100 and i couldnt resist it. my radiator and stuff should be here by saturday. after that all thats left to do it is run fuel lines and get the rest of the money to retrieve my wiring harness till its time to start the truck. wont be ready to drive until i do exhaust since i have short headers and it can warp my internals

Finished welding up the mount and cappping all the ends. I cant figure out how to get the linkage on the drivers side of the axle because there is only 2inchs of axle tube exposed and the perch is 3 inchs wide. its driving me crazy that i cany decide what to do and im kinda scared to cut into the axle housing.

just put some 12" down pipes on the headers and then you can drive it around. the warping the internals thing, not such a big deal as it is made to sound. its not winter and your not driving through water so they can cool at day time temps fine.

you could even run open header but its too dang loud

I keep going all over the place with what exhaust i want to build, i would really like 2 straight pipes to the back of the truck but idk if theres room. fall back is either 2 pipes down drivers side or just go into one 3 inch pipe down drivers side. DOnt really enjoy breathing exhaust while im driving through the trails

At least try to find a 44, a 10 bolt is weaker than a D30
