Well after doing that project which is done EXCEPT i need to bolt on the lid for it which is formed and I have the hinges bolted to that already so just need to drill 10 holes for the box side of those. I got back onto the ford. The 2 tubes that the spare tire sits on was going to hit the fuel cell fill plate vent so I redid that with a bend, but I don't have any photos since I put the tire ontop for mockup and a 40 on trail ready beadlock isn't the lightest thing and with the truck sitting so high I didn't feel like taking it off until I get the bumper tube mocked up.

Ok i'm starting to get the smaller items knocked out so I can pull the motor to get that over to the builder. Then I can finish welding and painting everything. Got the Power Steering Solutions reservoir/cooler mounted up today. Also started on the throttle cable brackets but I didn't finish that yet or got any photos of that since it's not done yet anyways.

wish i had a plasma to make tabs....

oh and i have heard mixed opinions on a filter for the trans. I heard all it does is show you the metal from when it blows up? haha.

I would think it would at least keep shit out of cooler in the event of max destruction too...

OK so more small tedious brackets and such on the truck today. Mounted my spin on trans filter AND a spin on fuel filter brackets today. Also got a tab welded onto the fire wall for the throttle cable to bolt onto the attach to the go pedal as well. Also was making more templates to finish boxing in the fire wall to seal that up after welding it all.
