Beautiful looking area to wheel. Where were you wheeling- still in ID?
It definitely is! This is down at Pittsburgh Landing, ID. Its always been a fun trip every year but I do wish the trail was a little more challenging in some spots. Its a very narrow trail with a long ways to the bottom so you have to really watch what you're doing so you don't roll off the edge. We had one guy roll off the edge one year and thankfully one of the only bushes on the mountain side stopped him from going all the way to the bottom. :shaking:

swap a Dana 60 into the front, 14b in the rear, bob and narrow the rear, maybe narrow the front, 40's. more trail rig than anything.
Nice! Should be a fun project. :grinpimp: Any plans for a cage? Im hoping to have time this summer to build a cage for mine.

yeah, nothing too fancy. maybe whole length of the cab/bed area under the hard/soft top.
That's along the lines of what Id like to do. At least there is a ton of room in these things to make it how you want!

Awesome build! Keep up the great info. Do you plan on doing any other engine mods, like cams? I'm interested to see how the EFI system would learn /perform with other engines mods over using a stock TBI system with a tune.

Thank You! Well it's already good built 383 that I built more for low end torque so there's nothing that I will end up changing on the engine since It works really well for its application. I do have a more aggressive build on the engine in my mustang and I recently put fuel injection on that about a year ago and it seems to be a little more challenging to tune vs this engine but I think a lot of that has to do with the 2 fuel injection systems being from different companies. Holley has definitely done a nice job with the self learn on there new sniper system. The sniper system has been a lot easier to tune.

Been a couple weeks since my last update but I haven't got much done. Been working on house projects while its still somewhat cool outside! :shaking: A while back I picked up a newer steering column that I tossed in. They look so much better than the older ones! Got my air compressor all ran and switches mounted up. Didn't really know where I wanted them so I settled on right by the headlight switch. I was able to find these neat switch holders on amazon that you can make to fit how ever many switches you want. So far I like them there and don't ever bump them with my knees. Mounted the compressor on top of the inner fender. This compressor is only going to be for running the air lockers. I have a few RV2 compressors so I'm going to use one of them for my OBA since they put out tons of air! :grinpimp:
