heres the dash setup so far, i still have work to do on it and its just sitting in there but heres my start.





also started on some cheap hood vents, i placed them towards the rear and outside edges so if it gets rain in it, it will be at the back of the wheel wells.

heres the vent material



like i said cheap hood vents, both sides cost me about $5 got them from home depot



measured and marked



cutcut and cleaned. i left the supports in the hood



i need to get some differnt bolts to attach it and then paint it



i should have this side done tomorrow night, i need bolts and more cut off wheels so i can cut the other side.

today i got the other hole cut in the hood for the hood vents, got them put in most of the way, i need more hardware. apparently someone mixed a bunch of different thread pitch nuts in the bin at ace hardware so im short a few. the empty holes are waiting for more hardware.







then i had fun doing this by myself



if it wasnt for this truck being my tow rig when im done, i would just be building an "allpro style" bed and run it.

Got the bed out of the shop tonight after work, loaded it on the car trailer, now the rest of this week and this weekend ill be loading it with scrap metal. Gotta clean the area up outside the shop from the 3 parts rigs out there (before I bring another parts rig home for the CJ6).

cleaned the frame up some with a wire wheel





threw some black spray paint down





for now i welded the holes up that were drilled in the WARN winch bumper and threw some spray paint on it also. the jack stand is there because i need the right bolts for it, i just put a couple smaller ones in to hold it. after its all up and running i am going to build a bumper for it.



i also trimmed the fenders and found some bondo in the driver side fender. heres a comaprison from the uncut driver side to the cut passenger one, i need to clean up the cuts these are just rough cut out with the plasma.

wow... Lots a love for an old Dodge. There are people who prefer Fords and there's Chevy guys, but nothing but a Dodge inspires us fanatics
