did you go? just didnt see it? It was in between the main building and the lower building were dirt theatre was. the baja shop 7200 full tube was just two spots down and the mcqueen ranger was a few spots up

during setup we were right when you walked out the roll up door, but they closed it once they opened up to the public.

i found out a shop in NV has a customer asking him to build him a truck and is showing him tons of pictures of mine wanting it the same way. The builder got a pic with us, that was very flattering.

yukon stuff



Some wiring photos,






everything gets crimp-solder-heat shrink- then loomed





fit all these wires into a tight AN8 virgin, had to lube and stretch her out






rear completed, moved on to the front








got the last light sensor needed, get it installed tomo, that will complete the front.



need to run some wires from underneath and do the light bar, then we het the fun job of connecting it all on the dash.

Its midnight and my feet are killing me, we just finished tonight, and worked till 11 yesterday. Tomorrow wiring will be done and tested (minus GPS but plug already ran for it). Been a long time coming took us about 5 days to completely wire the truck.

Got a pressure sensor from an 84 Chevy pickup, looks identical to the Autometer fuel pressure one and a quarter of the cost.




Got my first third member built, this one has the 6.00 gears. The other supplies needed to build the second one with the 5:83 gears are on their way.






Next is the wiring, I can’t remember if those first few pictures are just from the back or is a majority of the wires. Awhile back I showed the Weatherpack kit I bought. It came with 29 connectors ranging from single pin to 4 pin square and flat (the entire time we thought the 4 pin flat was a 6 pin). So since we did not have six pins we have about 1.5x the connectors we would have had. After we did all the components outside of the cab I still had 17 connectors in my kit (plus two 3 pin connectors that I decided to use for roof bar tonight instead of buying a 6 pin tomorrow, wiping out every connector). Most of you will probably say why didn’t you use a bulkhead connector if you wanted it removable. Well it would of cost over $300 (there a $100 a connector from pro wire) and I would of needed fixed to dash, fixed to panel, and dash to panel connectors. I decided to use what I had already bought, everything is labeled and in the end we ended up with 17 connectors (all filled [one capped for GPS] and every connector got used). I had to go out and buy an extra 25 male, 25 female, and 50 seals for size 14-16 wire. It was a lot of fun, very tedious and time consuming. We have gone through almost 400 4” zip ties and on our second 100 of the 8” & 14” zip ties.



Panel connectors

Start of dash wiring


Fixed gauges wired along with passenger ptt, horn, and oil pressure lead


Dash completed minus making the backing plate and molding into glass to mount the tach (also waiting on coil ptt, should be here tomorrow)

This has all the wires and connectors in it minus the roof bar wires and GPS, everything is tagged with the label maker as well as staggered connectors and reversed ends. As usual we use bare crimp terminals and then heat shrink.


The start of the panel, all the breakers are jumped (minus the 4 main leads) and the top row switches are powered and our first connector attached.


Next are pictures with all the wires attached (minus GPS lead) and the roof light bar leads were ran and had planned on buying two 6 pin connectors for the 10 wires tomorrow. About 30 minutes after these pictures changed my mind.




Closer look






In the end I decided to save myself $20 from buying four six pin connectors (2 male & 2 female) to save on using one less connector. I used my last 4 pin square and flat and my 2 pin (being replaced with a 3 pin so GPS is prewired) connector. Doing it this way also kept me from having to have two cavity’s in the connector. The other end of these will run up to the relays that will be behind the visor, and from their 5 powers and 1 ground will go into my last two 3 pin connectors to make the light bar removable. In the picture 4 wires are still not connected because I need to pull the 4 pin square off another harness and replace with the two pin I am removing from this picture.



I know it probably looks crazy, I definitely understand why wire guys get paid so much. It’s a lot of work, my neighbors friend is an aeronautics electrical engineer. He stopped by and confirmed one concern we had about splitting the breaker power leads in half, instead of one 10 gauge lead per row we are doing two per row. He said we did a great job and doing it just like he would of done it. So my dad was very happy to hear that. Hope you enjoy the pictures, time for me to crash so I can get up at 8am again. Oh btw here is a picture of the motorhome we got, trying to get a wrap for it.



thx for compliments
