That looks good Aaron. Very tidy. I hope you're keeping a running list of the pieces parts you're using.

gosh,I never knew so many to have the problem..at least im not the only one i guess.

Nate,i am saving my reciepts. when I am done i will document how many of each fitting I use and put the prices with them. I only used maybe 10' of the 20' of hose I bought. i have a bunch of extra fittings left.I wasnt sure how exactly everything would fit and look the nicest. I guess I am happy enough with it. just have to keep pushing forward.

Aaron, you said you welded the filter bracket to the frame. Do you guys disconnect the batteries when you weld like that or not. I've done it both ways and when I don't disconnect the batteries I feel like I'm taking a chance of blowing something.

looking good Aaron! I am stoked for you finally getting some motivation. I'd be hard pressed to do it myself with all the cold and snow.

Glenn, Its always better to disconnect the negatives when welding. I cant say I always do though. A good clean ground very close to where the welding is being done has never failed me.

My batteries though...one is on the floor and the other is in the bronco lol and the battery trays,brackets etc are in a box that they came back from powder coating in. the rad support is still needing my attention for the rust issues. I put it up on the body horse last night to study it better. Its pretty bad...wish I had a nice one to start with. oh well..i will fix it.

I've never understood why no one makes an aftermarket replacement. They make every other body part for our trucks, and core supports for gassers, but why not for our trucks.....doesn't make sense to me.
