it's cool, i went to alternative hose before work and got some hose, a couple of extra caps, and some hose condom for my fuel line behind my motor.
you need to quit f***ing around and get this thing done.  i thought i was slow... :lee:

i've been working on it. it's getting close. got my tranny lines plumbed up and the wiring harness for the engine all hooked up. i found some upper and lower rad hose that will work with a little trimming, and i got a sep belt finally. i have also been cleaning up wiring. got the wires for the fuel pump run up to under the hood and the starter cranks over.

the rain last weekend messed up my progress. but a good amount of time on it today and hopefully tomorrow if the rain stays away.

so things left to do:
- finish wiring connection for computer and power/relay box
- make a y-pipe, and get some o2 bungs, also need to reconnect my existing exhaust to the y-pipe (i'll have a 3" flowmaster 40 and a 3" performance cat for sale soon)
- throw the tcase back on the tranny hook up driveshafts
- need to get a water temp gauge hooked up. i got the oil gauge plumbed already.
- mount hydro ram, plumb line to cooler, and find a reservoir
- need to find a neutral saftey switch for my 4l60e. i found one but it's the wrong year. i need one with 1 pigtail connection if anyone knows where one is......
- fluids - oil,atf,antifreeze, power steering - the works

well it's all together and moves under it's own power. drove it around the block and it's running a little ruff and my death wobble from hell is back. need to hook it up to a scanner and see if it's throwing codes.

when i got everything running pretty well. maxpf came over almost a month ago and hooked up efi live to the ls and saw a plethera of codes and misfires (thanks greg). so i got the injectors cleaned and hooked everything back up and it's running pretty decent right now. i have only driven it around the block no faster than 15 mph, i am still fighting a nasty case of death wobble.

i made some new shorter front shackles (new are 5", old are 7") tonight and got some new front shackle frame mounts from diy4x. gonna get them installed in the next couple of days. the existing bushings on the frame mounts are worn out big time and my current shackles are too long and messing up my caster angles. so i'm going to start there for the cure to the dw. i also have all the parts and brackets for a panhard bar as well, but i'm going to start with the shackle crap first. harley also suggested to check the torque on my ball joints so i will do that as well.

if anyone else has any suggestions for the dw i am listening.

i am very close to putting some street miles on this mother fo.

Other than caster and loose, worn parts or bent wheels or bad tires there should be no reason for DW. I've seen and had soft long leaf spring rigs with no pan hard bar and no DW. If the caster is correct and everything is tight you don't need one. It will slow DW but is only a patch to the real problem..kind of like steering stabilizer shocks. :2cents:

I haven't updated this build in a while. I did add hydro assist and that took care of the DW, bandaid i know. I got a D60 from Patrick that needs to go under the truck so the 10 bolt is going bye bye anyways. The truck ran pretty well....until i cut it to pieces.
It was looking nice and clean

Then i got the bug




The interior got gutted

It's sat in the state for about 9 month until this weekend when in finally started the cage. I have been gathering parts the whole time. I got 5.38 for my new D60 and gears for my 14bff to match. The D60 is a spool, the rear will keep the lunch box locker. I have part i need to rebuild the D60 to new. The axle swap will be last on my list to do. My main concern is the cage right now. I will be slowly working it that for the next couple of weekends. Once i get the cage done i can get my dash and all the re-wiring finished as well. I'll post more pics of the cage as i get more done. I got the B pillar done this past weekend and started the A pillar. I still need to cut my hood to match the front dovetail.
I cut down the grill to fit in the new opening.
