    The wire loom idea worked out great.

    I've been trying to think of a way to build a air box to have the coolest air possible and found a air box that is exactly what I was thinking of building. It took a simple mod but I i did not have to make a box, which saved me a lot of time.

    Nice! The LS filter can be kind of ugly, that looks goo. Is that shroud sealed to the cone filter or is it more there to direct cool air in? You might need a splash guard on the intake hole if you drive it in the rain.

    That is round air box the cone filter is inside. I've already made a cover for it out of a drain cover from home depot.lol I was more concern with debris , because this truck will never see rain. If it does it is only to get home, it is a fair weather friend.

    It looks perfect there and you just answered the question I had. I was also wondering about rain water getting kicked up from your wheel. As beautiful as you pickup is looking I was thinking it wouldn't see much bad weather.

    Well Iím finally getting this thing to look like a something. I got the complete dog house install, along with the headlights and turn signals, and an engine cover (I think itís temporary until I have time to fab something). I also started wet sanding the fenders.

    The wifey said the truck was way too loud.lol She will be in it with me and I want her comfortable so I had to compromise. I installed new mufflers. The were cheap but got go reviews. So for the price I tried them. They are Jones Exhaust Max Air Flows.

    Heres what the truck sounds like now
