So these showed up today. Thanks to the creators at Ballisticfabrication.com


Now I need shock towers, and a trac bar to complete this long project.

Def agree. I'm going to lower them and weld in a cross plate on the back. It is 1/4" but I'd feel a little better about knowing extra strength is there.

Truck was put to side for a bit but back on it. 5.0 got. Ready to drop in. The 4r70w i got was Modular, not Windsor so need to get the right one still. Its prob a high mileage motor so Im not putting money into it. Once trycks is driving again ill start a clean HO motor biuld on the side for the b303 cam. Just current 5.0 could be ugly inside. So ill just run it for what its got left. Cleaned up what I could though.

For the PATs install, I just tucked the Module behind the radio, anyone think thats close enough? Or .... Also Im using the factory ignition and key from my 98, and I DO have the chipped key for the transmitter, long as thats close to the ignition right?

Also...for the PATs install, I just put the transmitter on the ignition colum and plugged it into the module behind radio...am I missing something? Hows the transmitter getting power? (I understand the module does a radio frequency to the comp) just wondering if i missed something?
