Finally finished my cargo box. I wanted to have access from the top and back, along with housing my cooler.

Freshly back from the upper Penensula, I stored the almost completed safari top at the ceiling of the unheated portion of the barn. I'll take it back down and finalize the mounting, etc., as soon as I find a safari to go on.

Exit 79 on I85
Got my exhaust installed. Bought Duff kit a couple years ago. Finally got it on my truck. It is quiet. Will drive it for awhile and decide if I want to change the mufflers out. Still need to trim a few inches off the exits and maybe add chrome tips. dual exhaust.jpg dual exhaust2.jpg dual exhaust3.jpg

Well after a friend of mine sort of made fun of me about a year ago, asking what is with the spark plug wires going everywhere looking like an amateur, I got some billet wire looms. I didn't think it would be that hard to find something that was old school and not some Chinese Amazon one-size fits none nonsense. For the record, my EB is not a show truck or even a truck I would usually lift the hood to show anyone, but I like this product, R&M Specialties....to be honest, the packaging seems like something you would see hanging up in the corner of a service station in the 80s or something when I was a kid. Anyway, nice product and actually made for a SBF valve cover bolt location.... aluminum powder coated brackets and polymer clamps. really sturdy. 12.jpg 15.jpg

Sold it. :(

The old rusty body tub, anyway. But, it's OK. Got a shiny new one to play with now, just have to decide on a color for it.

Did some research for some of my own. X2 thanks for the posting.

R&R Specialties flat http://www.rmspecialties.com/1105.html

Vertical mount http://www.rmspecialties.com/1105-90.html

Silver mount black clamp blocks. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rnm-1105s

https://www.amazon.com/s?srs=10160887011

Other ideas I came across, I believe the 1st 2 pics are from someone on here? Not sure of the brand. 3rd pic....well we all know the 3rd pic.
For mine, I used the included 1" spacers, I got four stainless 1/4"-20 x 1 3/4" bolts and they replaced the 1/4'-20 x 1/2" stainless bolts I had in the OEM valve cover. The spacers, for me, kept it up where I wanted it. I can't remember, but I am pretty sure my wires are Ford Performance 9mm and they still clamped it fine without pinching, but that is probably max size, I am guessing. It's nice they are made in US, as a bonus.
