Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

What tilt did you end up going with? Mine has gotten really loose and I have considered getting a new one. I have not heard much good on some of them though.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I bought mine from a boardmember about 4 years ago and still in a box. I am about to get it out and install it.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Well I pulled the trigger on Dakota Digital Gages today. I ordered the HDX with the silver background for a little bling. options are OBD port module for the LS engine, electric fan controller with 2 30 amp relays, and dimmer switch. I talked to Joel at DD before placing my order to make sure I have what I need.

As for paint it's been 5 month and nothing has been done. I did talk to Anthony last week and he said he would be getting going middle of this week. so we will see.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Hey DW glad to hear from you as it’s been quiet around here. I got my DD gauges hooked up and they work great. I bought the temp and compass module. Of course the Bim module for the canbus to control the gauges.
I was able to use my Ecm to control my fans. Is there a reason you were not able to???

Hopefully you will be out of paint jail soon!!!

I forgot abut the ECM to control the fans. Its to late to have the sensor removed from the order as I received confirmation they shipped it out yesterday

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Well you may not want to even use it.... possibly can send it back. I am also setting up the stock A/C sensor so my ECM knows the A/C is on and will operate/adjust the idle and turn on cooling fans.
I will be uploading the file I tuned possibly starting mine tomorrow.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

The big brown truck stopped at my house this afternoon just as I pulled up to my house with some bling for my truck. My Dakota Digital gages arrived and very cool.

After texting Anthony the last 2 days he said my truck will be going back in the booth next week for the 2nd color. I have my fingers crossed.
