The truck looks good. I like that front end better than the 01-04 fronts.

I cried every cut i made. Im going to a buddies house tomorrow, hes gonna help me with the wiring. We went to the hardware store tonight bought 64.00 worth of wiring kits that has different wire sizes on it for like 20.00 has 3diffrent rolls and 4 different rolls of the wire size on each roll. We also got insulated but connectors. It was a kit for like 10.00 i forgot how many pieces came with it.We bought like 10 rolls of electrical tape for 5.00, and we bought that stuff you wrap the wires in so the wires arnt messy, plus you dont have any loose wires hanging out. Im ready to get this bad boy mounted up. I gotta finish sanding it. Cause it has bubbles in it. Looks like someone took armor all after it. And armor all and paint does not go together. I should have this mod finished tomorrow. I will have pictures.

For all you guys interested in this thread. Here are a few pics of the install, today.



This is what my truck looked like durring the process.


We took the headliner out.


Brent started cutting


And we got the bracket mounted up YAY!!!!!


I have to put the console in tomorrow. Got dark on us. Were gonna wait and see what the insurance is gonna do with his truck. He has a 98 ext cab 3" BL and t-bar crank along with a set of exploder rear springs. Its got a 4.? which is bored .030 over and a comp cam. Ported and polished heads and matching intake. He just recently swapped the rear diff for a exploder rear diff. Any ways, a lady rear ended him. Bending the rear part of the frame. So if they total it hes getting a 08 FX4 twin stick. Btw he works at a Ford dealer as a mechanic. So were gonna wait to see if his truck is totaled or not. So we can wire my ohc and his at the same time. I'll try to go get pictures of his truck this week. If anyone's interested.

Sparks flying
