Got the gas tank mounted up and used original skid plate and brackets off the cherokee, fit like a glove with a few mods. Thanks 48steel for all his help now just gotta figure out which fuel lines go to which and run them in stainless tubing and swagelok. Also got the insides of the rims painted and the new lug nuts installed.

Where is the fuel fill going to be and are you going to have to notch the frame

hopefully i can turn it out either into the bed or into the top of the fender, not quite sure yet on how things are gonna work out until i get my body back. Hopefully i won't have to notch the frame again and can get a short radius turn in there to fit.

Great build! I love the suspension swap while keeping the outside patina. Clean motor and trans. Great fabrication, it's nice to see builders not afraid to cut and weld a little.

Are you planning on rebuilding the IRS? I'm assuming it's a jaguar???

Thanks everyone, not scared to cut and weld at all, welding instructor by trade. 95' Thunderbird IRS and it works fine not gonna have to rebuild it, maybe just bushings and new hubs. Just got all my body parts back this weekend and did some mock up, needs lots of work on the interior floorboards. Once thats done and interior painted Ill start to reassemble. Really hope I haven't overlooked anything, all advice is welcome, thanks to everyone on this sites builds. If it weren't for your trial and error i wouldn't be this far.

I think you'd best do something about the brake calipers on the front, they're on the wrong sides! The bleeders should be at the top.

That is a ton of work . Keep it up . As stated in the previous post might be tough getting the air out of the front brakes w/ the bleeder on the bottom . Good eye .
What is the rear out of ?

This looks familiar. GREAT work. FYI on the gas tank filler. Because the fill inlet is so close to the bottom of the bed wood I had to make a screw in stand tube to fill the tank. If you run it to the fender you will have to notch the frame.

Anyone have any advice on wiring the new 12v alternator, coil, and solenoid? Having some dumb issues with starter being constantly hot, ignition, and switch?! I'm a noob when it comes to wiring and have tried a million different configurations and still same result and advice, pics, or diagrams would be appreciated thank you.

I would check your body ground wire. Make sure there is no corrosion and that it is making a good connection on both ends.
