LOVE the little dollies!
ThanksRockridge said:Awesome job so far.
Yes left everything in. The shock mounts were far enough away if you weld one piece let it cool completely then the other side.markmitch said:When you welded the shock mounts on the axle did you do it with the assembly in it or not I ask because I was told one should never weld the rear diff with the guts inside of it due to the heat hurting the bearings and seals. I wish to do some welding on one in the future to change out the way GM designed the leaf spring attachments.
They brought the lower control arms 1.5" above the floor. Didn't have to lift the body as high to clear.dcsleeper said:LOVE the little dollies!
Thanks. The reason Im not worried is when I did the lift and had the 4.3. I used the stock air box but took the cold air duct of because no way would have fit. It sucked under hood air all summer and winter. No issues. Hope your not right this time.sixsix said:Nice work - fab stuff and all - we all hope your intake works out.
Not many that draw from that engine compartment do...
markmitch said:Why do you think K&N filters are crap? just curious what you knw that I may not about them.
I LIKE THAT! I didnt even think about that. Thank you.gavio said:If you cut off the left part of the bezel, where the neutral indicator light is, you can fit that switch into the spot where the lower part of the center A/C vent is, like so:
Oh you used the switch as the filler where the lower vent was. No wonder I couldn't find a blank for the vent was today at the pnp.gavio said:You're welcome... I made it more elaborate than is absolutely required - I added a second cross piece to the surrounding dash bezel because I wanted it to look just so... But you could just block off the lower part of the duct and simply replace the lower vent with the switch....
I wonder if the info is available in a '99 Tahoe Owners manual ? ... he may chime in tho.Bigforkg said:... For your Tcase to go into 4low does the trans need to be put into Neutral? If so how did you wire that? That is the only wire I need to do. But I can not find a wire diagram for a 99 Tahoe. I know its a green wire F15 on the Tccm to the pnp switch. I dont know if the wire is power, signal or completing a ground. Would you know?
Yes, it did.... I don't have the 233 any more (I switched to a 231), but back when I installed the electronic shift, I did a writeup, and it talks about that very thing...For your Tcase to go into 4low does the trans need to be put into Neutral?
