That is some great work, and I am really looking forward to seeing the completion of this cage/dash/interior, as well as how you are going to work the engine cage, and the attachments to the tubes coming out of the back of the cab!
As a dedicated 2nd Gen Dodge rockcrawler, (I have 3 of them, for a total of 7x axles! Yes, one is a 6x6x6!!!), Iím always all in to see quality work done on a Dodge! Please keep the pictures coming!! Iím also interested to see how you finish out the guts of the dash... the heat/ac/defrost ducting and vents! Keep up the good work brother!!

Thanks! I love the 6x6x6!
I donít have too many updates. I have been pulling all of the un-needed wires from the oem dash harness to clean it up some. Removed airbag stuff, abs, speaker wires, cruise control and some other stuff. Iím going to try to integrate my viper alarm wiring into the harness and some other features to make it easy to add circuits down the road.

Had an old dash in the back yard so I pulled the harness and I'm pulling out all of the unnecessary wires and plugs. Getting rid of all the ABS wires, cruise control, airbag stuff, seat belt sensors, most of the idiot lights and the speaker wires.
I'm going to use the original bulkhead connector to run wires for add-ons.
Basically cleaning it up and installing alarm wiring to plug it in at a single point. I'm using Delphi GT series connectors on the new stuff.

Sandblasted everything and I think it's ready for some paint. Put some seam sealer on the seams and a little bondo on the welds where the tube goes through the cab.
