Spent most of the day getting the back window in. Actually removed the old glass from the gasket, and had it cut around the cage bars. Was finishing installing, and cracked the freakin thing about 4" right down the middle. Got frustrated for losing 4 hours of work, and decided I am taking the gasket to a window shop. Did a few other things instead.

Moved the positive battery lead to look more symmetrical:


Finished the wiring all the way to the hot bus:



Installed my TS MPD and Heads up display. I like where they both are.




Gonna use the digital tach for the Heads up:

Just talked with Eric at Innovative diesel, and as planned, he is doing the tuning for Deranged, but the really cool part is he is getting me hooked up with the new SCT touch, http://www.sctflash.com/TSX.php. Its a pretty sweet setup, and should finish off the interior nicely. Thanks Eric, and the guys at innovative.

Cause it makes the most power of the Ford equipped diesels, and I had an extra one. Oh yeah, and no one has done it before.

Its official, I am addicted to Bling. Got my intake back from First Coast and painted it today. It looks orange, but its the same color red as my truck.
