Alright, So I've had a couple solid days to jam on the truck this past week. First, I was finally able to put the front suspension back together after it tried to take my finger off. Luckily it went together with no drama this time. All I need to do now is swap out the pinion yoke.

putting the leaf pack back together after paint


all buttoned up


next, I moved onto wiring and routing everything; including the fuel line. This took a lot of patience but I have everything where I want it now. I was even able to get the body harness and the engine harness work together off of the same power source!



The trickiest bit was figuring out what to do with the Ram's dash fuse panel. After some pondering, I decided to make a couple brackets and mount it behind the dash facing down. That way I will have access to the fuses easily.



After cleaning everything up, I decided now was a good time to bed line the cab. I've been wanting to do this for about 2 years so I'm happy that I was able to finally lay it down!

Before


After!



Now I just need to hook up the cooling system (and fan controller), throttle cable, parking brake, oils and fluids for everything, bleed brakes, and I could feasibly test drive it! too bad I have to travel so much for work this week or I've be trying to drive it sometime in the next two weeks.

Alright, so after the bedliner and topcoat dried, I insulated and reinstalled the trans tunnel cover.





I need a new cover plate for the shift sticks but it's 98% done. I was able to get the tcase shift linkage to come out of the original opening but I still had to open it up a bit. I used the original connector rod but cut it and refit it to work with the NP205.



I also was able to hook up the original heater cables to get the heater box to work. While working on the dash, I installed my toggle switches for engine harness on, radiator fan override, and aux lights. While doing the wiring, I spliced in new pigtails for the headlights and installed new 12v bulbs.




In addition to all of the small stuff, I painted and reinstalled the battery box while making a new battery tie-down and ports for aux power sources.





The truck is really coming along and I think I should be able to drive it after my next work trip!

Definitely not initially. I'm going to be gentle with it for a while until I get a good feel for it. Plus, I'm not sure how receptive the 10 spline pinions will be to all the torque in one hit. Maybe in the dirt?
