I'd like to trade my shoulder in but have been told it's a total loss.  :P

Carrier looks good. Getting started on mine finally. Setting up my welder at my father inlaw's so I have some room to work. I have to dig my slider mock ups out of storage and first them this year too. The whole working out of state thing killed my RC project time for too long. So glad that's done.

    • I knew I bought the right rig when my wife got into it the first time and said: This is a Man's Truck
    I removed a 32 tooth speedo gear from the transfer case and replaced it with a 43 tooth gear.  Now my speedo reads correctly (verified against GPS).

    So if you are running 36 inch tires with 4.56 gears then you need a 32 tooth gear in the T-case and if you are running 36 inch tires with 5.86 gears then you need a 43 tooth gear in the T-case.  You can get these from Quadratech. 

    it is nice to have an accurate speedometer!

    sneak preview of the new sending unit assembly, complete with in-tank pump and aftermarket wiring harness.  Fuel feed and return are -6 AN and the vent is -8 AN.  The internal lock-ring has 1/4 lock nuts welded to the bottom side and is held in place by two allen head bolts, then the 9 flange bolts retain the whole thing tight.  1/8" rubberized-cork gasket, Viton seals for the flange bolts.  Will have the sending unit powdercoated with epoxy.  Should be good to go.
























    l wanna know "HOW" you got the inside nut plate in the tank

    why with "Mad Magic" of course  ;D

    naww - the ring itself isn't 'solid' - it has a slit - dip one end past the tank inner lip and rotate it and it sorta 'screws' in - similar to feeding a key ring through a key eye...sorta - make sense?
