Hey what's up guys.

Still making progress on the truck. Just need to plumb the brakes and it's ready to stroll in 2wd.

The FiTech fuel injection is insanely awesome. Starts like a brand new truck. I've got about an hour on the new engine so far. Sounds like a very strong motor. I completely rewired the truck as well. New wiring is just too good to be true! I'm sure there more I'm forgetting to add here.

I built a cage in the truck. As usual it was a can of worms....ended up cutting the top off the truck...not to worry it'll get welded back on...took a lot of precautions to make sure it's dead nuts of where it was to begin with. It allowed me to build a cage thatll put up with more than a few rolls, which is what I wanted. I'm debating on running pit out to the bed...I'm in the god awful "might as well" stage.

I'll have to add some pics shortly. This pic was before I finished the cage and the wiring.

I've been crazy busy lately. On top of working full time I've been working my way through 3 classes a semester and I decided last week I'd go ahead and do something completely different for once. I joined the United States Marine Corps. So I've been getting myself in shape for that. I swore in last weekend and ship for bootcamp in august. I'll be in the reserves of course...23rd marine regiment out of San Bruno. So yeah always keeping busy lol!
