I finally put the motor in the frame on this and heard the engine run for the first time. Sure did sound sweet open long tube headers. Now on to some more work. Going to build my tierod ends tonight might start on a temporary harness bar for the prp harness I just bought. Also waiting on bump cans for up front, finally going to use the fox 2.0 hydraulic bumps I have had fir 6 years. Hopefully have it up a few going next week.

Just to update this thread… It took a bunch of chasing down harnesses but the coyote is all up and running and just took 9 days of abuse at the sand dunes

Well I finally received my 5 points and have a trip coming up so I built a quick harness bar for the truck it’s just temporary until I cage it this winter.

Do you want to die? Because that's how you die.

Stick to stock seatbelts if you aren't running a cage.
I will be fine for the short run I’m doing. Stock belts don’t keep you in your seats. Plus in michigan we don’t get to open them up like in the desert. My next run is a trail run we will see maybe 40 mph. Plus if you read it I’m caging it in about a month when it gets cold here

Right because the cab will flatten out like a pancake in any type of roll over. I have roiled many things offroad Jeep’s buggy’s sxs walked away every time. I will have to go back and check where I asked for opinions on my temporary harness bar.

EDIT- OOps. Didn't know we were dealing with someone who is indestructible and lives through everything. Weird why you would even put harnesses in then but whatever. Carry on building with no advice since you know everything. I'm out.

What part of Michigan are you in?

But yeah, would not recommend harnesses with stock seats/no cage. Live your life, though.
