Re: The Family Dragger

it's rediculously messy. my jeans are crunchy cause i had to do the underside laying on a creeper.

but here's some pics of the frame primed and painted as of this morning before the rain ended my fun.









Almost forgot the shocks.....that would have been bad.

Re: The Family Dragger

Haha that would have been bad if you were looking out for shocks on my truck and forgot to put them on yours! Its looking good though. I just realized you've come a long way in the past few months. I wish I was making this much headway on my truck.

yeah, that could have been alittle embarassing. i kinda wanted to put them on the link bars....but just couldn't figure out a setup i liked, or that wasn't on the side of a bar. the short notch i made didn't help either. this was kind of a cop out. oh well.

i've just tried to make steady progress on it every week. even if it's only 1 day a week, i wanted something worked on. building a truck is partially mental too, if you want to work on it, you'll find the time to. if not, it'll sit and the person will get rid of it. free time became alittle easier now that my son started full day school. so my off day during the week gave me a solid 5 hours to tinker. i've only got a few more things to do and i can put the cab back on. with all the rain we've had in the last 2 days it reminded me to check for any wiper cowl/firewall leaks after the raptor liner and i didn't a single one so i was happy about that.

thanks for the kind words too.

Re: The Family Dragger

figured i'd throw up some updates































i started swapping the '95 harness into the back of the '03 dash. right now i'm in the process of figuring out what wires to splice into the newer style plugs to get everthing to work. I've figured out a bunch, but there's alot i'm clueless on.

Re: The Family Dragger

laid the engine harness in. and started plugging things in to double check all the plugs will reach. eventually i'll replace all the old rusty hardware with stainless allen heads but for now it'll be fine.



i started figuring out brake lines and fuel lines too. probably order them after the holidays.

Re: The Family Dragger

Pm me if you need anything. My tip is to unbundle the harness and see what can stretch where before you go cutting and lengthening wires. I just did my v6 and my buddy just did his 4 banger. Mounted my fuseblock behind glovebox so I can open it up for full access. You keeping acbox behind the dash?

i wish it was that easy. i'm in the process of switching the '95 harness plugs to the '03 style so i can make the '03 instruments and switches work. I got the HVAC stuff already soldered in cause all those wires' colors matched right up. But the wiring for the headlights and the gauges are completely different. I'm not trying for EVERYTHING to work, but i'd like the essentials to function properly. i was never good at figuring out a wiring diagram, so this is really testing my abilities and more my patience.

Re: The Family Dragger

bolted the gas tank in last night. Ordered the EGR blockoff plate from DTS. still working on the wiring stuff but it's getting closer. i think tomorrow i'm going to work on redoing the frame horns. I've got the parts lists for fuel lines and brake lines written out and will probably order everything after the new year. slowly coming together!!!

Re: The Family Dragger

Outdoor build. FTW. Tank mount looks real clean. Treat yourself and buy a good brake flare tool. 250ish one that mounts to vice with long handle.

sure, np. but you gotta give me alittle more info than that to work with.

i cut the ends off my supply and return on the pump and re-flared them to work with AN fittings. I ran 2 ft. of nylon braided line into aluminum hardline. Ran the aluminum line to the front of the truck and switched back to 2.5 ft of nylon braided line. depending on your motor will vary how you connect to the fuel rail. what motor are you running?

Re: The Family Dragger

found a pair of shocks to use, but the stroke is too short so they're limiting my lift. but they give me enough lift to untuck. so my only concern is blowing the shock out. i'll probably add a limiting strap at a later date, but i can atleast check shocks off the list.

I also painted the alt pulley and cleaned the oxidation off the alt, then reinstalled it. i'll take pics tomorrow cause it was pouring out by the time i was done working.

Re: The Family Dragger

So i got a couple small things accomplished. I bought Dagreenmonster's hydroboost setup. and he gave me an incredibly clean PS pump. So with very little prep, i painted the pulley quick and installed that and the serpentine belt. so now all the pulley's and accessories are back on the motor. The AC pump is junk so it's just hold it's place till i can get the vintage air setup and a new pump.



I also tried straightening the fuel lines a little better and added some aluminum line separators to clean it up a bit. Then i drilled the holes on the driver side to start tapping the frame for the taillight wires, brake lines, and power wires.

Next on the list is tackling shocks in the front so i can send the arms and other pieces out to be powder coated. That should happen on monday.

Re: The Family Dragger

hydro boost lines all hooked up!!!


Mounted the rear accuair sensors




Mounted the bed!!!!!! luckily, i was able to reuse the bed mounts from the crappy backhalf. They're only tacked on right now, my next day off is Friday and i'll pull the bed back off and weld them fully on, then touch up all the places on the frame that i scratched.


Unfortunately my math was alittle off...haha. oh well. i'll raise the middle section between the tubs and noone will ever know...except you guys and fb.


So friday's tasks are gonna be finishing up the bed mounting, then i'm gonna install Hellhounds sunken shock mounts in the front.

Re: The Family Dragger

thanks guys!!! just trying to plug along and not waste what little time i get to work on it. I've been lucky to get things accomplished every time i'm out there.

Yesterday i finished the welding on the passenger shock mount and mounted the front e-level sensors.






as you can see in the pics, i have to slide the brackets over about a 1/4". I doubt that the sensor will bind up, but i have the room to move it over, so i might as well do it. And it will give me an extra 1/2" of clearance away from the tire.

Looks good. I'm interested in how you run the lines for those setups.

the fronts, i'm probably going to go under the upper control arm bushing and through the hole to drop into the top of the upper bag cup and out the hole next to the airline. i'll have it follow the airline all the way to the back. That's the plan right now....we'll see how it pans out. haha

The rears should be pretty straight forward since everything will be mounted in the bed.

Re: The Family Dragger

couple of little maintenance things done today. raised the motor back up to stock height, bolted in the starter, and put on the new plug wires. should have gotten a ton more done, but the new motor mount tabs were bent to hell and nothing lined up.

Re: The Family Dragger

got the tranny cooler mounted and started figuring out the radiator hoses. I gotta have the lower rad inlet reduced from 2 3/4" to 1 1/4" and the rad cap area cut off and plated. dropping it off monday at a shop to get done.

Good progress. I like how you finished out the radiator cap area on the core support.

That is a nice touch. I didn't even notice it at first.

It's not staying anymore. i took my rad to a guy to have the rad cap shaved. i decided to do it the right way and put the cap in the upper rad hose so the cap stayed above the t-stat and bleed air out properly. so i'll be filling that in in the next couple days. oh well.
