I may be dumb and missing something but isnt it somewhat dangerous having electrical jumper connections around fuel?

Diesel fuel is much less volatile than gasoline.

The filler neck is not a part of the fuel system on my truck. I have a bed mounted auxillary tank.

Aux 1 and aux 2 will be lights on front and rear bumpers. My sister bought my a 300 ammeter from a B17 bomber Im trying to incorporate into the alternator/welding circuit.

I need to quit adding stuff. I have a problem I think.

I know how you feel. I started my build only planning to rebuild the Buick 350 that came in my truck.

Apparently I have a disease. Timolol. Used for high blood pressure amongst other things. So my Jeep is medically necessary to keep my blood pressure in check

Time for some small updates. Now that the flu season, holidays, work, and emergency home repairs have passed progress came begin on the final push. First order was to fles the suspension out and measure for driveshafts and shocks. I got to drive the truck! Granted with no brakes or engine not sure if it counts. Felt good all the same.

Rear driveshatf should be ready to be picked up tomorrow.

Shocks are Fox 2.0 16" remote reservoirs. Not wild about chrome but what are you going to do?


Going to wait until the driveshaft is on before bending the rear shock hoops just in case

I added an auxillary light inside the lid of the fuel tank/toolbox. The idea was to provide a work light if I need to work on something in the bed at night. The light is bright enough to illuminate the ground 100 feet behind the truck too. It is an eliptical pattern. Light is a Vision X Solstice IIRC

Plan B arms the winch controls haha. I guess it should be plan E or F

Plan A- try to negotiate obstacle
Plan B- back up and try again
Plan C- 4WD
Plan D- engage reduction on doubler
Plan E- Spool large turbo and dump clutch
Plan F- winch my truck as I have broken the driveline

I like your build, I have read it front to back. I am a 715 guy as well but never built one with a cummins in it....Yet. I have a design question about your truck. Why did you choose to shackle the front spring in the rear Vs. the front like a jeep? Is there an advantage to it? I am building a 70 gladiator and rebuilding my suspension under the frame rails as you have done with some differences. I have not started, but I planned to shackle in the front on the front axle to allow the axle to move forward under articulation. My truck has the fender flares removed and will be getting fabricated flat fenders so I have the room.
