Started to finish the winch wiring, the Giggle Pin extended motor mounting bolts make for a neat contactor install.

Here are a couple of progress pic's I posted in the GenIII LS thread of the completed engine & radiator install.





And I just completed the new chassis loom, ready to be installed. Just have the top cage loom to finish now for the light bars etc.

Now when I look back through your build, I keep imagining this playing in your garage! ;-)

Great work by the way.

After a respite from working on the truck for family reasons, got back to it this last couple of weeks. Made a start on the exhaust system using 2.25" stainless steel tube for the Y pipe into a 3" Magnaflow silencer.



Fun part is going to be routing the 3" tail pipe round, up, under or through the rear 4 links.



Am going to have to cut & shut the passenger side manifold to lift the output pipe about 1.5" higher as it now looks too low to clear the drive shaft on full bump... darn !

Looking good!

You could drive a truck through that gap above the axle on the left side! The biggest challenge is thinking in three dimensions and then being able to execute the plan in your head. You are making great progress!

Just not sure if I want a single 3" tail pipe or just bite the bullet, run the 3" up to the middle between the front of the of the top links and do dual 2.5's out the back just inside the edge of the chassis rails with the pipes passing up and over the top links. Need to do a bit of measuring to make sure it'll all clear at full bump and flexed.

These oval tips would look rather smart out the back....

Couple of other pic's I didn't post up, rebuilt 3rd for the rear axle with a Detroit locker. This will be an interim solution until I can build a heavier duty 609 axle to give me 30 or maybe 35 spline half shafts.



I also finished the brake pipes on the rear axle. There all bled now so it should stop

There is no point to going 30 spline as it is only 15% stronger than 24. When you do you to 9 you need to use 35 spline or there is no point.

Thanks, I guess I'll just have to save up some more $ then.
