something bad happened

I removed the bodylift and unknowingly cut through one of the wireing harness, fitting in shock towers.

The gas gauge wasnt working, PRND indicator not working, CEL's up the ass, truck wont move, wont start easy.
Fixed the harness, most of the codes go away; only have reverse no foreward; tranny is makeing loud noise in P and N

there goes weelin this weekend

It's throwing a code that the TCM is not communicating.
I go and get a new TCM, same problem.

I probe deeper, find a pinout of the TCM wireing diagram, and I discover one of the grounds and two of the +12V are dead. I trace them to no avrail, all relays are good/fuses key on/off does crap, key switch is ok. So I splice in a switched 12v and a new ground.

it WORKED, after ~20hrs of no sleep I sleep

it drives! but I have one more code p0700.
I need more sleep, cant pass emissions with a CEL

EDIT replaced the TCM, have the standalone power, it works great no codes!

I found out why.... it's my fault. Plus the new one is going to be .250 wall


I simply did an SOA with the 2wd dakota leaves, they are currently flat and starting to neg arch, flex unreal tho

Anyways, my pinion angle is damn near perfect, upon pulling the DS I found that my 14b straps were spread wide and damaged out, and the 1350 DS yoke smashed on the ends...
I belive my axle wrap was so bad, the pinion rotated up, bottmed out the u joint and caused the driveshaft to bend, it was bent in plane with the yoke ends too.
I put the truck in 2wd and in park, pushed it back and forth and yep, that pinion moves like nuts.



I NEED a fucking traction bar

I also need to lift the rear 3" or so
so some solutions come to mind
#1 swap dak 54's for 63" chebbys
#2 long Add a leafs to the dak spring pack
#3 custom 54" spring pack

what do you guys think?

well, the new driveshaft is the shit... many said I couldn't run 1/4" on the street, never could get it to balance etc..etc
those fawkers be wrong
had it up to 85 no issues; and my wierd 65mph vibraton is now gone.
once again, I shoulda listened to people online in the first place...
painted the trailer (damn trailer now has a better paintjob then the truck),fixed the sketch shit, and did an SOA on 35's

this means I dont need a bed anymore

So the trailer fabrication and paint is all DONE
time to add the good stuff..



This leaf spring is not happy

and time to fix the truck... going to drop the bed down, and add some 63's
$41 bucks out the door for both at pull-a-part. There's like 20+ chevys but the idiots set the trucks down on the axle or leaf-springs; found a one ton chebby missing the 14B, with the five leaf pack, centering pin and overload missing but I didn't give a fuck, much better then dropping an axle to take the springs. 10 min job and I was outta there!
bling bling

here's my shackle/hanger design; going to cut up my old shackle and put the bushing sleeve inside, it is going to be bent 90deg for the fishplate to the side.

front mount

shackle .375" btw

Can I get more info from you on the dakota digital setup on your truck? What year is your truck and how exactly did you piggyback the rear vss to the one at the transfer case?

I need to get my speedometer working and all the info you can share would be helpful.

Another option that I am looking at is to adapt the Ford 8.8 vss into the 9 inch housing but that seems to be alot more work than just messing with a few wires.

Oh btw I am diggin the trailer build.

Why use the factory shackle bushing? Just use a piece of DOM and some standard bushing so they are simpler to replace - http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...t_Code=BUSHDOM

When I took apart the 45rfe to add the 4x4 converter piece I found that a sensor reads off the parking sprag gear, I simply found the signal wire and ran that to the input for the dakota digital. (2001 dakota 4.7L auto 2wd btw)
If you cant find an output sensor on your tranny simply weld a bicycle gear or something similar to somewhere on the driveline and make a bracket to hold your old VSS somewhere to read it; I saw some local guy do this on his 1500 ram SAS

My bad, I forgot to mention that it's an aftermarket lift shackle bushing so the piece I am cutting off is round and steel with a nice rubber bushing inside with a zerk too. I dislike poly stuff because we have had nothing but bad luck with poly stuff cracking and smashing at work; and since I am saving for a D60 I'am trying to keep the entire leaf spring swap cost under $50 bucks LOL!

Great info nick thank you very much. I am going to try and make this my weekend project. You have me thinking about a trailer build. Built one years ago as a utility trailer but something similar in design would make a great place to stay dry and play some cards while camping in the bad weather.
