I will hopefully soon. Heading up to WFO Concepts now to get more brake parts. Got the majority of wiring in and filled her up full of gas and she started right up! Fuck ya. I am going to try and get it moving tonight

Looks really good. I'm totally copying this when I link my truck.

Videos update, it runs!

Got her running last night and still needs some work. It bogs down real bad and want to die. I don't have the O2 sensor in yet and I'm thinking vacuum lines are out of place.

So I got the o2 in and it was still boging down real bad. I pinched off the return line and in ran great. So I have not enough fuel pressure, I'm going to try the p5000 pump from naps and see how that does.

So I stood on the gas then stomp out my brake pedal yesterday and it seems fine. Just have to mess with the proportioning valve for the rear brakes. I tried doing it on the pavement but its hard to tell, need some dirt to see if it will kick out or not. Figured out why it was bogging down too, timing... Thought it was fuel pressure but at least I have a spare pump now!

Got the front fender half way on. I think it looks pretty good. I don't think I am going to put the rear fenders on, don't like the way it looks. Just going to build my own.

My coil rates are wrong because the ass end is so light. The lower coil is 175 and the upper is 150. Both are 16" long on a 16" coil over. I had to run a tender coil to lower my ride height and give it some preload. So I think the next go around I am going to run one or both of them 18" long so I will not need a tender.

I really love this build because the fab work gone into it is simply awesome. The truck is built to tackle some of the most toughest terrain, Yet still has a "truck" appearance. I love the look of buggies, but theres just something about rocking a full cab and still being able to do work on the trails.

Very nicely done! I'm officially jealous

Thanks man I appreciate it. I might be putting on the rear fenders soon too which makes this thing look like a real full body. After I wheel it for a while I think I am going to get some new fenders and doors to make it not look like a beater.

So I was not able to take it out to KOH so today was the maiden voyage. Did really well. Only problem was heat, it was getting too hot so I called it quits. I think it is a problem with my timing still so I have to mess with that.

These are the only pics I have from today, mainly because I could not make it up this part, every where else did great so no need to get out...

It did pretty well except for my box is leaking pretty bad. I am going to send it off to PSC to have them rebuild it and drill and tap so when I go to assist it will be done already. The bar that I welded on to my axle that protects my tie rod sucks for catching on rocks but I did not hit the tie rod once. If I did not have it I would be building a new tie rod right after this trip. I would rather get suck on a rock than not be able to steer.

Problem was timing. The person who owned that motor before me had the timing chain off 1 tooth. Now the only problem is vacuum and power steering box leak, I think

So we got the timing fixed and vacuum lines hooked up. I have done a little research but I am still not sure what is wrong yet. The computer seems to be putting it into limp mode. When I start it up it is really responsive but after it warms up it still bogs down real bad. I know it's not a fuel problem because I just installed an aeromotive bypass fuel pressure reg with a gauge and I have it set at 40psi. I am thinking the comp is chocking the air system somehow to make it run rich. Any help would be awesome.
