This what you need

Below is what you need. I have the valve so I just purchased the bracket. My valve was on the steering box but Inline tube state they is not correct but I am sure the placement on my truck is how it was purchased.

No pics of engine tranny combo yet. Don't have them yet but I should have by the end of the year. thank you for the kind words. I'm not very good at typing so it will be mostly pics, unless someone has a question about something I installed. I'm also not much of a mechanic or body man. parts changer would describe me much better, I know just about enough to get me in a bind sometimes.
with that said here is a pic of driver side inner fender with one coat of primer.

Looks Like we are working on like projects mine is in process of going back togeter

Filling trim holes in tailgate,



Tailgate almost ready for body shop.

Is there a product you can pour inside the hollow portions of tailgate and slosh around to protect it? I guess something similar to the fuel tank renew stuff.

sorry about that last post, I think I just figured out how to post pics from google photo.
well the whole aluminum gauge cluster thing didn't work out


The guy I had welding it for me got it to hot and ruined it. So I'm going another route
hopefully something like this.


How hard is it going to be to get to those nuts that hold down the dash pad?
