Pretty close, a few oil lines, some plumbing, and some wiring. Just have not had the time this summer. Also didn't help that I lost my main sponsor due to the economy this year.

Well after 8 weeks, I finally got a couple hours to work on it today. Yes I have reached the part called HELL. NASA went to the moon with less wiring than a 6.0 I am certain.

yeah to a point wiring can be easy. But it never works out right and it just gets messy. Some people love it though and it comes easy to them.

Well, no pics, but I did quite a bit more wiring today. The engine harness is basically in, and now I need to find a place for the other 12,578,394,743 wires on the 6.0 wiring harness to tuck away. I'm ordering hoses for the fuel system, and for the radiator, and I think I might actually fire this godforsaken project soon.

Well after going to the Schied Diesel Extravaganza, (race) I got motivated to finish the Ranger. Got started today, did some wiring and got the harness through the firewall and hooked up to the fuse box. Was cutting the grommet, and had a dull razor knife. Changed it, and it cut through the grommet like it was a hot knife through butter. Right into my finger. This picture does not do it justice. It bled like a stuck hog for an hour then I finally decided to go to the ER. The doc told me I was in luck, cause the bone stopped the blade from taking the tip clean off. :bang Now I can truly say BLOOD sweat and tears. LOL

where was the schied deal?

You should aim for finishing by the end of October. We're gonna have a small meet in Austin and hit up bone daddys for dinner.


...sorry about the finger
