Sory. Ive been doing a ton of traviling and been tracing parts and knocking things off the list.
Had to order new pullys from trans atlantic diesel because s&d kept beating around the bush. Im happy with the new ones and ill have the engine in next weekend.
I also got the rear axle cleaned and the rear truss welded and in.
3 tires have rims and air.
A bunch of wiring done. All that is left is the rear lights, winch, wipers, starter, and offroad lights. Things r moving smoother now that most of the wiring is done.
Couple of pics until next weekend.

Just got back from north carolina on monday. Had a few min yesterday to cut a little and place the fuel cell. Still got to finish the straps and fill neck and foam the hole but one thing closer to being done.
Moving things around to stab the engine this weekend.

Have you checked fitment of the tailgate? I had to cut the raised portion over the latch out of mine, which looks to be in the exact spot. I plan to build a new one, here directly.

engine almost in. i have to relocate the stock fuse box and turn the bat sidways.
still got to make the engine mounts. slow progress but some is better than none.
on a side note i have to raise the fuel cell so the fittings wont hit the track bar at full bump.

How big is that fuel cell?

Glad to see you're still cranking away on it.

sub'd....great work seeing someone do a diesel. Gives me hope to tackle a swap of my own as my 3.8 just doesn't have the "go" I'd like. Can't wait to watch this come together.
