Well, I got my drive shaft made, but my daily driver had the FICM go out on it so I had to rob from the ranger to get my truck fixed temporarily. I have worked 7 out of the last 9 days, and now I work 10 out of the next 12 days, so I have no time to work on it. It really sucks traveling for a living and trying to finish a race truck.

OK, so I am ****, and after seeing the ranger in Car craft with no wiring showing under the hood,
I just couldn't stand to look at my mess. So today I ordered this. Painless Performance: 8 Circuit T-Bucket/Roadster Harness[/IMG]

Its gonna add a full day of wiring to what I had already done, but, its gonna clean up under the hood beautifully. Thanks for being patient. Its gotta be done right, or not done at all.

Well the tranny is in, and it was a mother to get in. I know its a shock, but it fought me all the way. Used a motorcycle jack to get it in there. Also ripped out all the old wiring from the ranger tonight.

Well, got the cooling system finished, just have to add coolant and watch it all leak out now. LOL

Also stripped out the OEM Ranger fuse box and underhood wiring. Rewired the harness, and cleaned it up. Still not done yet, but close.
This:

And got all 8 EGT probes for the data logger today. Thanks Dennis Perry.

OK, finished off the Cooling system, and filled it with anti-freeze. Filled the transmission with Royal Purple ATF fluid. Changed out and re-bled the brake lines with a proportioning valve and brake light switch. Ran nitrous lines up to the engine bay. Second Nitrous bottle will be at my house today, (I will not be there though), Have the Painless wiring kit ready to install for the lights and gauges, and ignition circuits. Gene is making me a mount for my alternator to mount where the AC used to be. I have a weak starter, but have another on my workbench waiting for me. Basically if I were home, and if I had my FICM back from Doug, I would be driving it this weekend.
