Tomorrow going back to driveshaft shop, I have a bad vibration on takeoff it does it for about 3 seconds when hit gas. All other speeds its fine. I'm thinking carrier needs shimed or pinion angle. I'm kinda ruling out axle wrap, since I don't have blocks in the rear or soft springs. It has shackle flip with factory springs in rear. So will see. After that is fixed, I'll get windows tinted and get full detail inside and out. I'll be done

Hwh love the truck man! Your vinyl floor looks like it fits really nice compared to some Iíve seen. What brand/where did you get it?

Also I noticed you didnít have a neutral safety switch on the tranny - how is that working for you? Iíve read mixed things about not running it.

Thanks

I got the vinyl flooring from classic industries, it workout well just half to lay it in the sun. For a good day and works out good. Haven't had any problems without having neutral safety switch so far. I can't recall a time where I tried to start a vehicle in gear, whether I forgot it was in gear or anything.

Awesome thanks man. Did you ground the wire from the PCM that gets the PRND signal from the neutral safety switch?

Update on truck been driving truck little over 3 months. Had hydroboost start leaking it was new so it was under warranty. Also thermostat wouldn't open so changed it works fine. So far only things happened since started driving it have put about 3400 miles so far changed oil at 3000 miles. Entered truck in the good guys car and truck show march 9-11. At Texas motor speedway. So that will be fun to take it there.

Hey guys, been a while and I'm in the middle of my 6.0 swap. What page or post deals with the coolant temp sensor?

I'm trying a 3 wire (2 wire to computer, 1 to guage) and I want to see what he did....

Do you have any more pictures of the Amp steps and how you mounted them?

Thanks
