40x40 with 12' ceiling. 3 doors. 12x10, 10x9 and a 9x7 inside between the workshop and the rest of the area.

I hope I wasn't confusing. I have the wagon frame and chassis still here at home. I'm heading 3.5hrs away to get a reg cab Long box 2500 cummins with no motor or tranny.

This is what happens when I am actually home on a freaking nice day. Was 14°C today. And practically no wind. So it was a productive day.

Made it home. Big shout out to my new pal billy. It's thanks to him that this project will finally get under way.

Quick spec. 07 2500 ctd reg cab 6spd manual. With no engine or transmission or tcase. All good. I will be starting a separate build thread for this one. And thanks to mikekey and you Moab guys I now have instagram and have uploaded the majority of the progress to date. I will also do the new build in instagram as well. Find me under this username or dpw37.

Now we carry on. Off on another road trip tomorrow.

Spent time today working on my onboard air setup. I had picked up an air ride compressor and controller awike ago but have done nothin with them. I did all the plumbing today but there was a storm moving in and wind picked up so I didn't get to the wiring or controller.
The way it's set I can either let the pump run the air bags or fill the air tank. Also with the lever adjusted to the tank fill position I can manually fill the bags from the shrader valve. Or fill the air tank from the second shrader valve. The air bags are always in a sealed condition regardless which way the lever is switched. The tank is an old one I've had for years and pretty much had everything i needed to do this with stuff I've collected or bought over the years. The only thing I didn't get to was an air hose quick connect. Which will draw from the air tank only. Hopefully next weekend is good and I can get the test finished up.

I actually started the day planning on doing the leaf spring swap. But after removing the first leaf from the truck I inspected the other leaves and saw that the bushing is really cracked up bad so i put everything back together. Thuren leaves it is. Wife gave me permission if I can sell the old hemi tranny I have here.

Been awhile since I got anything done on this bad boy. Finally tackled the end of two projects. I eliminated my svc 4wd light and abs light. I also finished wiring up the controller for the air lift pump/gauge

So after a careful disassembly I got the dash cluster out. Only to find no access to most of the bulbs from the back side. No matter I'll just pull the cover off and expose the bulbs and pull them from the front

Well that just got me the stupid circuit board. And then to pull it off you need to take off the gauge needles!! Uh oh this just got more iffy

Well that worked and exposed the lens.....and lo and behold. No bulbs. Leds on the circuit board!!! Ahhhh fuk

So I had to come up with a solution. To block the lens. Tape? No. Sharpie?? No. How about some rustoleum??? Sure. But I couldn't spray it. So I used a piece of shrink wrap as a straw and proceeded to add drops of paint into the lens until it was fully coated. Let it dry and bingo. No light transfers through.

Then I tackled the gauge for the air controller. Used my spare console cubby since I no longer have a electric 4wd switch and decided this was a good place for it. Used a piece of plexi as a cover plate and got it all figured and mounted up. It was less exciting. But it's all done up now and the pump inflates the bags and deflates right from the gauge. It's much slower than the external valves but it works in a pinch
