    You could install a slide whistle and route your OBA to it so it makes neat noises when the windows go up and down.

    Are you thinking about modding the engine? Adding ~1000 lbs of weight to the KJ has to be jacking up the performance.

    Yeah it's called a SBF 302 with stand alone FI,bye-bye 45RFE also since a well modded C6 will(or a heavily modded AOD),oh and all the electronics will be ripped out and the accessories will be hard wired(lights,power windows,power door locks).

    No new pics,almost all the trails are closed here due to being snow packed,I know my winch works and that is all that would get a workout trying the trails here now.Going to be at least June before it gets on a trail,maybe May.

    That's like THE BEST mod ever.

    I hate all this complex wiring. Get back to basics! :p

    I think he means non of this "BCM" nonsense where straight ground turns on the headlights and a different resistence does parking lights only.

    Troy, you going to use a Painless kit? I used one for a Chevelle that I built years ago and it was a cinch.

    Yeah been looking at the painless wiring kits.I'll be keeping the power door locks,power windows,and modifying the ignition switch/multifunction switch to still operate.The AC will be gone though,no need for it anyways and the SRS system will be gone also.
