Got the Truck unloaded, it was full of parts. Installed the new brake booster, Pedals, Accelerator Pedal is electronic, so I bought a new assembly. Installed 3 of the gauges where the AC/Heater controls used to be. Mounted the billet Optima Battery hold downs, and removed the bed to get the stacks out then reinstalled it. Mostly talked to folks that came by.

Cage goes in next week, when I get back from work, and have a few days. I ordered the Kirkey seats a long time ago, so today I figured I better get the mounts. Both are adjustable. You never know who's gonna be driving. LOL

that's gonna be quite the sight.
I've decided I want to race you during one of your first runs.. while your still dialing it in and learning how it drives, i figured that will be my biggest chance of winning

I think your best bet would be to choose the track. Offroad, and you win by forfeit. LOL

I don't think he'd be building a project like this if he didn't know what he was doing!

did i ever say he didn't know what he was doing?

something of this magnitude take tuning and getting used to. I'm not saying you wont, Tim, but i doubt he's just gonna hop in and run ***** to the wall on his first pass..
