It's getting there. I have a more current thread on the mud forum with some better documentation of where I am at.

here's the trans ready to go in:

I managed to get it in place the other night. I hope to have the t-case in place tonight:

I would say the cost of this in parts alone is going to be around $6500. I am doing all the work, so if someone were to pay to have the swap done, it's easy to see why a turn key swap can hit the $15k range. There's a lot work involved not to mention countless hours researching, learning about (what is to me) a new engine, figuring out the parts that are needed, and putting it into an action plan.

The biggest hang up right now is time. I don't have a lot to spare with my wife and I both working full time and trying to raise four kids (three of them are two years old). I am targeting the spring to have this truck back on the road. Let's hope I hit it .
