Nah. Making them is so much more fun. Major props to you for building it yourself.
And that looks really cool.

Hope you guys don't mind if I jump in on this thread. I recently rebuilt my 22r and ever since I put it in the temperature would run warmer than normal operating temp but would never overheat. After chasing the usual suspects (burp cooling system, fan clutch, thermostat, etc.), I noticed that my volt meter on my dash seemed higher than normal. I put my multimeter on the battery and the alt was charging at 17 v. The truck has an external voltage regulator so against my better judgement (and the fact that I didn't want to be stuck on the side of the road) I bought one from Carquest. Needless to say it didn't fix it. Did some more testing and found some corroded connections in a weather pack terminal, replaced, all is well now.

Nice find. Electrical can be a bugger.

Relocated my 3.4 ECU behind the dash and modded my glove box to clear

Looks good!

I don't personally use a fork when doing electrical, but then again, I'm not that good at it

LOL
That's a very important tool for electrical work. It checks to see if the wires are live and stuff…

Thanks, It's crazy how trying to chase down a cooling system problem turns out to be an overworked alternator. Pretty soon I'll be tearing out my dash to figure out why my defroster door doesn't direct all the air to the windshield.

Recovery points in, all tow points fully welded, and the inside of the bumper is fully welded and beginning to be boxed. Ends (Facing the front of the truck) still need to be boxed in and welded. Just got the spindle for the swing out, so now it's time to fab up a tire carrier. It's getting there!
