That a nice looking rig you got there. Don't think I've ever seen a double dove done on a TOY before. Just the front or the back, but never both. Like to see how it looks. Got any new pics?

3 CAT scans a MRI and some time with the shrink and it's comfirmed. I'm just not right in the head.

Had a little more progress yesterday..  I had to pull out the air hose reel outa the back and move the airtank around to make room for the radiator..  But at least its gona fit like a glove now.. Also had to modify the exhaust a little bit..  Needed to raise it up a couple inches to be sure it cleared the belly pan im putting in!! :turtle3:

Anyway im going to get tubing for the radiator tonight and hopefully get that squared away tonight.. It sure is alot easier working with the tranny & TC outa the way..  Ill have some more pics up tommarow.

ITS ALIVE!!  All seems to be working great..  Radiator seems to be keeping things cool..  That was my main concern.  But the stock pump seems to be doing the job..  :)  But only time will tell..  newest problem is the front driveline..  TG 12" spline.  Anyone have a problem with them bending or the splines twisting on them??  I was in need of lengthening it to acomodate the case being clocked and the damn thing only slips about half way??  No visible damage, cleaned thoughrouly?  So this is my only conclusion.. Any ideas??

Didnt have to do a thing.. Got the 3" BL so it all cleared with no problem.  The Xmember was a little close, but the grinder fixed that!
