Installed Leo's 160 amp or whatever winching alternator. Stoked for this beast. I broke some motor mounts and that led to my PS line getting tugged on a little and leaking. Need to fix that.

Brazed up the pump fitting to be a -8 JIC so I can just make a hydraulic hose because the '99 and '00 trucks have a unique pump and hose so there are no aftermarket ones I could find and OEM is even a gamble if it'll be correct.

Installed a 1600cfm condenser fan and it is incredible. AC is super cold at a stop.

Since I don't have ABS I made a bracket to hold the ARB Twin Air where the ABS would be.
