Default Frame off?

I have the 40 dismantled to the point now that I am seriously thinking of doing a frame off. All that is left is the tub and the electrical in the dash.

For those who have done one, how difficult was it to get everything back together? Are there any big "gotchas" I should be aware of before doing this?

If I am going to pull the wiring harness completely I want to replace it, but I am planning on going with a Landcruiser electronic ignition. Should I go ahead and wire that in first? I don't want to scab onto or rewire a new harness right after I install it.

It would seem that, between this forum and mud and the FSM's, this should be do-able. Am I deluding myself?

Anyone want to do a frame off this winter?
