Not a lot of progress lately. Did a little work today but I had my little guy with me and he only lasted about 3 hrs. But I was able to get my up-pipe welded up and painted and also got the brake pedal welded up and installed.

I also had to add a support to my paedal hanger because whenever I stepped on the pedal it would flex the firewall. I still need to clean it up a little but it made a huge difference. Doesn't move at all now.

Did a little more work this week to my exhaust and coolant pipings. I was going to have more room on the left side but after I divorced the transfercase and had to add the additional mount it got pretty tight. So it is taking a little extra time but is going to work well. I need to pick up a few more pieces of tubing for the exhaust before I can finish the piping on the right.

Yes it will have a stack... I like it. Think it looks cool. Besides it's more tractor than truck at this point.

I think a stack is needed on a wheeler, keeps the smoke up and away at low speeds on the trail. Trying to figure out where mine will go on the bronco once I go 4bt.

That's gonna be a tough one. I was going to build an Explorer before I came across the Sport Trcac and I was really wondering were the radiator and stack would go.

Right now I think through the hood is the only option and I thing it would drive me nuts. I can try it out first though by just taking the hood off and running it like that. But I have a couple years before I do this swap.

I aquired the shop next to mine so I took out the wall between and enlarged my shop. That was taking up most of my free time so I didn't have any time to work on my truck. I moved my truck to make better use of my space and while I was moving it anyways, I let the suspension droop out to take some measurements. I also flexed the suspension a little to check the clearances. Everything is just tacked in so I didnt want to get to carried away.

I measured for my drive line lengths and I found that I can just retube the Super Duty shafts I have now. The front shaft length changes 1 inch and the rear changes 2. The rear shaft is getting pretty close to the maximum operating angle on the U-joints at fool droop but should be fine.

So on the front are the lower links triangulated enough to locate the axle or are you going to run a track bar? Can't quite tell from the picture. Either way it's looking bad ass!

The lowers are triangulated, about 60* total. Originally the plan was to go double triangulated but after getting into the project a little it just wasn't gonna work out. This may sound dumb but I went to the Monster Jam World Finals in Vegas year before last and had a chance to check out the trucks up close and I think I have as much or more triangulation than most of them and they do fine. So I'm planning on running it as is.

Got a little work done. Got the coolant tube on the left side in and got the clamps built. I got some more of the turbo down pipe built and built a clamp for the right side tube. I need some more exhaust tubing and finish running it befor I can finish the right side coolant tube. The further I get into this project it seems like it takes longer to do less...

Was working on a loader at the shop today so I had a little time to paint my calipers and brackets. Then after work I mounted one up real quick. First time I've had a caliper on with a wheel...

Well it's been a while since my last confession... Been chipping away at it and really hope to have it done this winter. Got my front brakes on and plumbed from the frame to the calipers. Takes a while to get everything the way I want it. I still need to add a clamp to the long side line but I'm happy with the fit.

I was planning to run the brake lines through my steering line brackets but there was not enough room. So I had to build some new brackets to attach the brake lines to the links.

Also got the rest of the exhaust run and the hangers on. Ran into a bit of an issue with the coolant line on that side so it has to run over the top of the exhaust. Oops.

Got the rear brake hard lines bent up and installed today. Still need to install a clamp on the long side.

I don't have enough room in the engine compartment to put the fuel filters so I built this contraption that will be mounted to the fuel tank. I built some tabs that will be welded to the tank and the fuel pump and filter assembly will bolt to them.
