    Haven't posted for a while a lot has been going on. Went to SEMA and got the owner of Trckcoversusa to make me a custom cover for the Comanche. Not cheap but a very well made piece of kit. While I was there I also saw the decked system so I had to have one of those too. Had to shorten it a bit to accommodate the cover.

    And I scored an antenna brake light mount from a Ford Ranger. Fits perfectly on the Comanche

    Now build wise. I have been slogging through the wiring. Got to test fit the harness and have located the PCM and the Cruise Control module. Got the intake plumbed. Had to relocate the AC Compressor down lower to get the intake in. Used a Rustys battery tray to sit the battery as far over as possible. Also moved the washer fluid reservoir to under the fender.

      Got the glass and electric window regulators in

      20200215_161400.jpg

      Next up wiring up Alternator, PDC and Starter with 2 AWG cable. Got to finish terminating all the connectors on the engine harness, ECT, Cruise, shorten the Alternator plug and a few more. Should have the engine harness complete next weekend. Just waiting on a couple of connectors. Need to plumb the AC and Heater hoses.
      Once that is done I am going to be pulling the engine to route the winch power and to button up the dash and firewall. Then for the final install with the trans and transfer Case. Hoping to fire her up by early May......

                          It looks like the bed is almost ready for a roof top tent?
