You're too kind. If this looks good then it'll look insane when I'm done. Did you notice the brake booster is pointing into the air? They took it off the car which I suspect has a slanted firewall and just bolted it on my truck which has a vertical firewall. I already cut the mount and welded it back on so it's fixed.

Did you see below the booster? They added a 15 " piece of metal to mount the brake line "distributor" (sorry don't know what it's called. The thing that sends the fluid from the booster to the 4 lines. ) instead of just bending the lines and mounting it below on the frame.

Don't get me started the previous owners I think just wanted it to work around the yard or down the road and back.

I removed all the wiring and I'm going to replace it and rewire it myself because I think they had stock in a electrical tape company. They taped EVERYTHING. I spent hours just removing tape so I could figure out what the wires were for before I removed it all from the cab.

Let me stop because I could on for hours but at least I know that with help from my neighbor and guys like you on this forum I'll make it a really nice and above all a safe reliable ride.
