Man you were crankin'! I was wondering about you monday morning, you had gone quiet at some point and i figured you were just down in the trenches getting it done. Way to weekend warrior the piss out of that!

If you are going to retain your cruise, please document it, i want to swap over to a wood nardi and retain cruise, i think it might be as simple as a bracket, but i havent tore into it yet.

We'll see what i end up doing.  Cruise control currently isn't useful because it drops a gear the first time it sees a 1% grade, then will never upshift again, so i don't use it.  But in the future, it sounds like something that would be nice to have.  :)

Yeah we made it in 2 days, it was done by late Sunday night.  We eyeballed ride height and set toe, slammed some victory whiskey and a beer, then went to bed.  I drove it home Monday morning.  Nothing like a 400 mile test drive, right?  We're dumb and do 2 day builds like this a lot.  We've Ecotec-swapped a Miata in a weekend.  We've put together a new motor out of spare parts, swapped it in a car, and turbo'd it in a weekend.  Initial build of my track car was 3 days.  :P

I may actually see if there's a square switch that i can wire to it that would fit in the dash somewhere else.  We'll, see, probably be August before i mess with CC, to be honest.

Thanks to both you and Adam for the weekend's support!  This was a rough one for two dudes that don't really have "truck experience."  (I've previously done a similar job on an XJ, but the only "gotcha" there is the axle side upper control arm bushings.)

Here's a write up on a subaru that has the same style CC  as us. Was going to copy him. Also from the research I have done it seems we have the same steering wheel bolt set up as Evo's.

Got aligned and joined the small willy club.  I'm not compensating, i swear!  (FZJ80 is on 33s, for reference)
