Fit is nice. Time to sit back and enjoy a job about half done. Ok, that was fun, back to work.

Wiring harness from Fuel Injection Specialties in TX. The fit on this along with the labeling make it a great buy. Totally worth it to sidestep wiring headaches.

Ugh. Trans came back out today. Damaged the pump housing with a poorly seated TC. Rookie mistake. Word to all of you with the 4L60E, make sure it's properly mated, ALL THE WAY, to the torque converter. Lots of forum warnings to see in hind site. Oh well, back to work.

Thanks! I made a poor choice on the wires. Im waiting on a set of over the valve cover wires to set in there.

I used the same wires but different headers, it was still a very tight fit so i decided to add Kevlar boots to them.

Why did you buy two rear dana 44 axles? Shouldn't one of those be a front?

Ha! Yeah, well I went with the intention of picking up one and he had another one sitting right next to it. These are pretty tough to find in Chicago so figured I'd grab it sell it off, or keep it as a spare. 44 in the front is in the phase 2 planning.

Moving the rig back home to finish the project! Probably the only time I'll be excited to see the wrecker. Trans and TCase went back in with no problem. Can't wait to finish up the plumbing and try to turn the motor. Soon!

Back in my shop. Plug wires went in nice and easy, way better setup than what I had. Made the brackets for the trans cooler and got it in along with the radiator. Really happy with the clearance I got. I knew it could've been an issue with the LT1 based on other build threads. On to wiring and finishing up the plumbing. Also struggling to get a fuel line setup that I'm happy with. Anybody have LT1 YJ fuel setup they're happy with?

I plan on using Cool Flex hose to simplify things. I dont like the rubber flex hoses currently available.
