If there's no port there then don't worry about it. Mine doesn't have one there either. I just thought you had one since it was drawn in your purdy diagram. Lol

Tie those two vents together (or cap the one on the sender) then three sides of the tank and down

Thanks dude

Moving on now my tranny gauge and cooler setup. I want to make sure I am understanding this correctly. The derale fan setup I have comes with a temp switch that is inline on the pressure side of my th400. That switch does one thing and turns the fan on and off automatically. Any need to run this on a toggle switch as well?

The second part of this is my equus gauge. It needs a temp sender which equus has and goes to an 1/8 npt fitting. That seems easy too. All I need for that is an in line block on that same pressure line as well correct? Then I just run the signal up to the gauge.

I am going to run this

Put the thermostatic switch for the fan in the hot trans line. Put the gauge sender in the test port on the side of the trans. It's the outlet side of the pump and is already 1/8" npt.

I feel you pain with the small space. It's great when you finally roll it outside and look back at how empty the garage looks!

It feels pretty good.

Picking up a bunch of different front springs for the Kings to try out. Also, was looking at my calipers and bolts that came with my 14 bolt disc brake kit and threads are different. I sent a text to Brian at 4x4 outlet to ask what was up see if he can send me the right ones.

I'm running 14" 125on top and 16" 200 on the bottom. I'm pretty happy with it. just need a couple runs on it to dial them in. I also have the internal bypass ADS shocks so that helps to. I'd go with 150 over 225 to start.

The center port of the pump has a really good roll over valve in it. I am only using that vent and not the Goat Built valve. I put a 5/16" push on fuel hose on it without any fittings and just have it running down the side of the tank.
You might want to rigid mount or protect the hoses that connect to the fuel pump with the AN fittings, if you snag a hose the pump fittings can break off very easy. Under the bed of a stock truck it was not a design requirement.

Picked up a few different springs to try from a buddy today and started playing around with them. Right now I'm about 18" belly with pretty much flat lower links at ride height. I have about 5-6" of shaft showing in the front and about 7" on the 16s in the rear. Never owned a linked rig so I'll run it like this until I feel something I don't like.

Again, badass build can't wait to see it done.

Sorry about the delay. I'm 33" from crank pulley to front of chassis and 25.5" between the frame rails at the rad.

Pcv catch cans in. Rock lights and reverse lights in. Snugged up the fuel lines and brake lines as well. As I move forward though the ass and is a little higher than the front and it seems tall. Two options either I ditch the 16s and go down to 14s or I angle the 16s forward or back a bit and redo the upper mounts, thoughts?Name:  ImageUploadedByAG Free1444001317.845310.jpg
