Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Cabell,

I will let you know the minute that I am back at the shop for more than an hour with all the details.

Ok, I know its been long but ...

I have been busy. So after working my day job for 3 months in a row, I finally got around to get some more work done. I added some lights(4 Hellas 500 on the rack, and a set of Light Force XGT on the bumper), wiring and all and now have completed most of the installation leaving only the back of the truck to be done. I have to note that I went with led bulbs all around for brightness and longevity (since they don't get too hot and melt the receptacle) so I had to add resistors to all for blinkers to keep the turn signals to go stroboscopic on me. Now this brought another problem of its own as my running light now seem yellowish in color compared with the white parking lights. So now I have to source a set of 7" round H4 receptacle for the front, might even go HID on them.

After 2 years on the shelf, the 200tdi started right up on the very first turn of the key. Bare with me that I was not expecting that at all, but it started right up and worked flawlessly. After running it to temperature and making sure all the gauges worked as I have put a few extra gauges (mechanical Temp and Oil Press gauges, Tach, EGT) I bled the steering fluid on the PAS box and was extremely pleased at how smooth everything went. The air got out of the cooling system pretty quickly and on the next day I fired off the Webasto heater a hot cylinder head was achieved in a matter of 5 minutes from garage temp. witch was impressive.

Now all I have to finish are the speakers install and I am good to go ! Go make those bumpers that is ...

Attache are a few pics of the winch set up with the remote plug in the cab and control box in the right wheel well, engine bay and battery box.

I will also post a youtube link later with the truck swap we had to do in the shop for another project (engine rebuild and some restoration and some preventive maintenance .

Turning up the tunes ...

So I have spent a fair bit of time putting those speakers up front and just finished building a speaker box for the back and making the most of the small space of the double cab. I use Pioneer Premier speakers all around.

In the front I went with 6.5" component speakers and installed the cross-overs with the radio in the Iron Goat dash. Tweeters went in the top for maximum sound quality and dispersion.

For the back I had some gauge 100 aluminum bent to fit the profile of the rear seats and made some ribs that I riveted and will be applying some Second Skin Audio sound deadener to the inside to seal each chamber and maximize resonance for the 10" sub and 6" x 9" . As a preliminary test I ran the system all hooked up and sounded really clear and very loud. I am also putting in a 300 watts amp for the sub the will be in the sub enclosure. Not ideal I know but it is the best I can do with the little space I have available. Something I like about the setup is that nothing touches the floor and therefore is not exposed to moisture.

Also the bottom of the speaker box is a good base for other equipment in the future (Ham, Inverter, ...)

A few pics attached :

I was thinking of doing something like this in my pickup. Have you put the seats back in to see how it sounds?

Well today I have put all the audio together and gave it a try and got literally blown away ! I sounds very loud and very clean" the funny thing is that with all the sound deadener I put in you can hardly hear the music from the outside witch is pretty neat.

Pics coming tomorrow.

I know it's been a while but ...

I do have results to show for it. The day job and family has been keeping me very busy for the last two months but I have managed to get the front bumper done.

Essentially its a pre-bent 3/16" pre-bent channel for the corners that I kind of "origamied" to the shape I wanted and welded the seams. The winch tray is 1/4" pre-bent 90 degrees and cut to shape. As for the tubes they are 1.5" .120" bent on a Pro-Tools bender.

Installed are the support for the two Light Force XGT and limb risers bracket.

Now the only thing left is to send it to the sandblasting facility and paint it with Por-15 and top coat Hardose semi-gloss black.

It weighs in at 85lbs unpainted.

I will post some pics of it on the truck but in the meantime here goes...

On the truck pics ...

Voila !

I really wanted a low profile bumper that didn't stick out so much in front and keep a good approach angle.

Sorry for the wait there, just waiting for the weather to clear up to get some decent shots of the whole thing.

OK, sorry for the city pics ...

But it has only been out of the shop a few hours so I'm not going too far yet to get the kinks out.

The rear tire carrier came out real nice and works like a charm.

So far so good, a flat tire, fuel pumps needs work and one brake was adjusted too tight.

Enjoy ! Cause I am

Yes it does feel good to drive it once again. The only thing now is to get my diesel issues solved. I might need to get the injection pump rebuilt still have to troubleshot. Otherwise it is just awesome ! Now I am getting all my recovery gear ready and putting together all the camping stuff so I will be good for a long fishing and hiking weekend.

I really enjoyed doing the rear tire carrier and it was allot simpler and cheaper to make than I was hopping for. It hardly cost me 175 $ of material including swivel pins and the hinge pine witch is rated at 1000 lbs and has grease nipples. The front bumper was a little harder but straight forward to make. It still amaises me what you can do with a small mig welder and some quality time. Next stop ... the expedition tent trailer mounted on a rear salisbury axel with 33" tires to compliment the truck an get it ready for the trails.

Thanks for staying tuned all and yes more pics will come and if any of you want pics of particular parts just let me know it will be my pleasure.

Pat

Man ! It would be all my pleasure but with my son's (5y) diabetes (3 months now ...) we are just starting weekends out and camping. We are slowly stretching our comfort zone. I was hoping to make to Colorado for the ROAV but it is looking bleak right now.

On the other hand it might be good for MAR witch I doubt you will be there (or not ...)

By the way the suspension setup is really nice to drive, only complaint would be a small re-valving of the Foxs.

Thanks and I do look forward to meeting you guys.

Pat

Hi Pat. I'm sorry to hear about your son. (edit: that sounded more "final" than I meant it! Please take it the way I expect you understand that I mean it...)

I'm still waiting for all my parts to arrive from the UK. They're still sitting in a container somewhere on the wrong side of the atlantic.

I'm also hoping to go to MAR this year. I've never gone before so if you go too at least I'll get a chance to meet you there. I thought MAR was an easy target but with the container still in England I'm starting to wonder if I should be getting a little nervous...

- Andrew.
