Thanks you sir. Can't wait to give er a whirl.

Planning to put the motor and trans back in permanently between Christmas and New Years.

I shifted the steering over an inch, but I lost the two top bolts in the process. They now are on the edge of of the frame. I'm leaving it for now, but I'm planning on doing something like welding a 1/2 inch plate to the top of the frame and bolting the steering box to that. We'll see. I was considering a power steering kit, but Mar-K had a sale on tailgates, then they had a sale on bed wood and strips, so I gladly gave them all my money.

As it currently sits.

I have been collecting necessary parts. Drive shaft, exhaust manifolds, etc.

Your shop is way too clean.

Thanks Jay. The 47 is currently sitting in my garage. When I bought my new GMC a couple years ago it didn't quite fit where the Yukon used to be. So I notched out the wall and built the hokey box at the back of where the 47 is in that pic. My wife shakes her head calling it just one more of the redneck things around here. Haha. But my GMC fits in the garage now.

Here's a few pics of my actual work shop. The kid that used to keep the place clean left more than a year ago for college and I haven't replaced him. Now there's crap everywhere and it'll never be this clean again. Oh well.

OK, so these are from today. Haha! I literally shove the debris aside so I can use the mill. Hardly a horizontal surface without piles of crap on it. Oh well, I've got more work than I can do and the bills are getting paid. I realize this isn't driveline related but good fun anyway.
