Holy crap! That truck is super awesome! I like it, especially the custom gauge cluster.

Thanks for your comment, it's not on YouTube yet, maybe when it's all done! Should be in a few months.

Thanks Joe Cool, Thanks for the comment. The gauge cluster was a lot of work, it comes out in one piece with one plug to remove it. I'm going to post a couple more pictures with the finished dash.

Here are a few more pictures of the finished dashboard. Just working on the upholstery and then the seats can go in.

Thank you (Luckydevil) Wasn't easy getting all the wiring in behind the dash for all the gages. The steering column cover was originally plastic but I built a steel one so I could remove the ignition switch from the column. It's a 84 Nissan tilt column. Hope yours works out well.

Thank cjzeppy for the comment. I wish my truck was as nice as yours to start with. I was only able to save one door and the cab from the original.

Nice job on this, it looks good. Thumbs Up

Did you use the 521 wiring harness and integrate into everything?
I only know of about 5 of these conversions, I didn't know about yours till today.
Have you been able to drive it yet?
Is this a 4X4?

Thanks for the comment about the truck. No I didn't use the 521 wiring harness, the motor I'm using has it's own wiring harness that I bought as a kit. The air and heat system has it's own harness. I did everything else myself. It is a 4X4 suspension but I removed the front axel and diff, not doing any 4 wheel driving with it. Haven't driven it yet, had it running not long ago but in a couple weeks I hope to take it in for a wheel alignment and it should be good to go.
