    Do you plan on pulling heavy loads with this rig? Are those fans able to move as much air as the stock clutch fan? I know that while pulling a good load, they can run hot if the fan clutch gets even a little bit weak. I take that as meaning the stock fan is barely adequate.

    As of right now I dont plan on pulling anything beyond 8000 or so lbs..something like a car/truck or a toy hauler. From what I've read the mechanical can pull like 10,000 cfm at full steam. Everything I've seen on these fans says they can do somewhere between 4-6000 cfm each on high. I think I should be ok but if I need to, i may put a 2000cfm aux pusher fan in front of the a/c condenser for towing

    Not many photos but got the 40 gallon suburban tank mounted and modified the sending unit slightly so it should work just fine with the duramax 1/2" feed and 3/8" return. Got my beefy steering arms in from RuffStuff with the Odyssey battery boxes and set the engine harness on the duramax! Working on the fuse box wiring for the engine and then this baby is about ready to fire[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Got the wiring harness done! Just need to wire it to the fuse box and then do the new painless truck harness. Injectors are in and started working on the battery box mounts. Just about ready to fire up! Also got my Diy4x np205 mount in, cant wait to get that set up after it fires off[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Got the Ruffstuff battery tray mounted for the first Odyssey battery. Going to make the mount for the ecm, tcm, gpcm, and fuse box tomorrow then wire them up to the battery and make some noise this weekend[​IMG]

    Just saw this thread for the first time. I don’t know how I missed it. Awesome build! Motivates me to sack up and get back on mine...maybe when deer/black bear season ends!

    Haha you and me both! Just gotta run the battery cables for both batteries, run the fuel hose from the filter head to cp3, put fresh fluid and filters, and then see if we can make some noise tomorrow. Video going up instantly if it fires haha

    Well...got the battery cables made, filter head hooked up, some misc, flashed the ECM and cranked! (Video attached)

    Forgive the messy wires, wanted to make sure it ran before I loomed everything. Time to pull the harness, clean it all, and start final assembly and get this pig on to daily duty![​IMG][​IMG]http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5bc3ef503dc08/VID_31190528_181215_120.mp4
