Thanks; yep, thats the plan after the paintjob; I'd like to get it up around the HP and torque of my 2014; 400/800...that will make for a nice little driver, not too crazy.

Engine all cleaned up, fresh paint, new gaskets throughout, replaced a few worn parts; now its ready to install this weekend.

I am planning several mods to the engine later on, once the budget recovers from all the bodywork; goal is 400HP/800 ft lbs...

Personally prefer Beige, Bluke will look good in that red engine compartment.

Got the engine and trans installed this past weekend. Now to work on all the wiring, guts, install the dash, and everything else on the front of the cab. Here is how she looks now:


Just started going thru my boxes of parts to see what needs repaired/cleaned/replaced. Just the wiring and interior trim panels here. Much more in storage. Hope I remember how all this goes back together.



Exhaust and a few other misc parts.




Drove 550 miles round trip to Charleston, SC last weekend to secure a good drivers side door (finally) from a fellow Ram hoarder. Put it up in storage until the next round of bodywork comes.

Now, comes likely the most difficult part the process of cleaning/replacing/refurbishing 4.3 million bolts, nuts and screws. Got a good wire brush bench grinder, so that will take care of most of the big ones. Lots of nice clean bolts from the donor truck available too, just have to sort them all out. Free beer and steak to anyone that would like to join.

Along with that, I have started pulling parts out of my storage and doing an inventory of what needs repaired/replaced etc. I have the front wiring harnesses laid out for inspection, cleaning, and repair. So far, they just need a good cleaning and some new loom and tape.

Just a small part of the interior and wiring I had boxed up; my storage room on the side of the house is still full.


After the bolts are sorted out and fixed up, along with the wiring, dash will be installed, and the front engine/chassis harness. Need to go thru the turbo and get that put on too. Sending the radiator, CAC, and heater/evaporator core out for cleaning/testing as well.

Some sound deadener is going in, then new carpet over that. The undercoat is mainly for water/rust protection.

Time for an update; other than the 10,000 small things I have been working on the past few weeks----all wiring repaired/cleaned/retaped/loomed; started rebuilding the heater box; and several other small things; got a pretty big step done today; I got the bed media blasted, cleaned up, and in primer, except for the underside, and inside; thats coming next weekend, we are going to coat it with spray in bedliner...




Next step with the bed after the bedliner application is to put it back on the truck to await the next trip to the body shop; a few dents to fix, then we can put some color on it. I'm going to wait until I get the front end into bare metal and primer and do it all at once; and blend into the cab if necessary.

In the mean time, dash will be going in as soon as the heater box parts arrive, and I can put that back together. Then we will work on getting her running again. Tons of parts sitting here to install, and several more that need to go to the powder coat shop first...more to come...

BTW; if anyone is looking for the trans tower shifter boot; buy one for a G56 on a new Ram; works just fine on the Getrag 360.

Making good progress. You are moving at a good pace. These projects tend to take MANY months.

Billions and Billions of parts.

Here we are just shy of a year into this project, almost to the day.

Stuck the bed back on the truck for now; we'll be doing all the body work and getting rid of dents/dings once it heads up to my buddy's body shop:


Aside from that I got the new foam in for my heater box, and began cutting out new gaskets for it:


Replaced the evaporator core, had the heater core cleaned and tested, power washed out the mouse nest, and cleaned up and lubricated all the moving parts, replaced all the foam gaskets, and shes ready to install:


Heater box installed:




After finishing the heater box rebuild, I decided to stick the dash in:

Hot Diggittie - Looks sharp. How hard is it too pull the heater core?

The engine and MC has fresh paint - the firewall has fresh paint - the heater box stands out in the engine bay. But progress is progress.

You can remove the heater box without taking the dash out, so its pretty easy. Everything in the heater box is new; so hopefully that wont be an issue anytime soon.

I'll brush touch the bolts, but no real reason to paint the heater box. It will be buried by the fender and a cover that goes over top of it.
