Thanks guys! I have a few things on the plate for sure, right now I need to get it insured. Anyone have any suggestions? I have it with my other truck with progressive, but they only pay out KBB values. I was hoping to get it insured for $30k or so. What does everyone else use?

I found a quote with Hagerty, I think I'll give them a shot, it was $850.00 a year for $30k.

So, I'm selling my Currie axle that came on the 40. Here is a link to the Mud post. Let me know if anyone is interested! Thanks

Update: Things are working great now! I finally figured out my emissions problem, the seatbelt plug was plugged into the cat thermo temp sensor! Once that was swapped out everything was working properly!

I do have another issue though, whenever I shift into reverse it wants to grind, nothing horrendous but it does sound like I don't have the clutch pressed down. It goes into all the other gears easily enough, just reverse gives me problems. Would this be solved by replacing both the master and slave clutch cylinders?

Nice! Glad you swapped out that Currie, I think you'll be happier in the long run

You may just need a clutch adjustment to make sure it's disengaging properly when pushed in. I have to make a nice clean shift to reverse in mine or else it'll try to grind too. A lot of it is just in the nature of the truck transmission!

Late comment on insurance choices - I use J.C. Taylor - much like Hagerty, but years ago, Hagerty wouldn't insure trucks, so I switched to Taylor. I pay $86/year for $10K coverage, I think, and Taylor is good about insuring 'work in progress' (non-restored) trucks. Was your $850/year for $30K with Progressive or Hagerty?

It was Hagerty, and they actually wouldn't cover me due to me putting down "light off-road use" I actually ended up going with State Farm, they use actual value instead of Progressive's KBB method. I've gathered up all my receipts and am thinking of getting it appraised for my records.

Well, I'm not proud to say that after extensive MUD research and another blown weekend or two I was at my wits in and dropped it off at Rocky Mountain Cruisers, I was getting some other work done there that I didn't have time to do. They were initially as stumped as we were, but after some clever testing and comparing the wire colors to the schematic they figured it out!
