    Times 3, great battery box setup and seats. Awesome metal break you made up. I like that a lot.

    That looks like a great spot for the battery, A little work to get at it but you don't need a floor jack like mine. The seats are a great find too.

    Actually got it running yesterday! Not without some glitches of coarse. I reversed the plugs on the PCM so it would blow a fuse every time I hooked up power to it. After I figured that one out it would try to start not not quite, it set a couple TAC and APP codes which is the drive by wire stuff. I pulled all that out and cleaned the connectors and it started. Put it into reverse and drive and it wanted to go so I'm hopeful the trans will work OK. I feel like it runs a little ruff, checked the compression and spark and that seemed ok. May have to do more testing.

    The first startup is always one of those milestones that you'll never forget. Usually guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

    Killer rig; every bit as nice as going to the dealer and buying a new truck but 10 times as cool.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I've been camping on the coast the last few days, kind of anxious to do some fine tuning on it. I'm wondering if my fuel pressure is a little to low. I got about 50-53 with the vacuum disconnected from the regulator on the fuel rail. I was reading 58 is normal.

    I'm looking forward to more videos! My 5.3 is probably older with more miles but I needed intake gaskets right away. A proper tune fixed the rest of it.

    I've been working on building the bed. It had a rough steel bottom so I cut it out and making it a wood bottom. I got the mounts done. Going to add some more bracing but ran out of steel. The fender still needs to be positioned and mounted, it's close. I need to figure out how I want to do the back finish panel and mount the tailgate.

    Have you ever considered swapping the fenders side to side?
    To my eye they just seem backwards....

    It's a common thing on these but I think I like it the original way.

    To each his own right??,, but can I ask a favor?? If you've the time could you humor me and grab a pic with the fenders swapped 'round!?!?! I've seen another truck like yours and it just seems to me that the fenders are backwards. I don't know if the opportunity will ever come again.. so if you have a chance.. could you humor me and show a pic with the fender the other way?? PLEASE???

    Yeah, Mike, I agree that at first glance, the fender looks kinda backwards so I googled this truck and after scrolling though all kinds of images of it, I notice this truck has all kinds of odd little design quirks that make it seem to work, sorta...but, I did find one where they swapped the back fenders around so we can save StudM5 the hassle of trying to appease you...

    Well Thanks to you R2. I also had "googled" and searched for a pic so I could post what it might have been.
    Hadn't stumbled upon this one. And this pic does appease me! LOL
    I think it looks so much better than the "right way 'round"...
