Nice work, not an option for those of us with 4wd trucks, though.

Oops! You have a manual tranny then? I have my 4x4 transfer case selector switches in that part of the dash.

As far as gauges, in another thread it was pretty much decided that the Isspro gauges with red needles and blue light covers most closely matched the OEM gauges.

Hobby store styrene, loctight plastic epoxy and fiber bond with spot puty. the trick is from my model building days is to use super glue and excelerater between styrene to make strength. That section is stronger than the whole dash bezel now. I have a thermal molder from way back when I made 1/24 scale 4x4 parts that will accept a piece as big as the bezel and make them for all of us.

You can get the manual shift case with the Allison. Always have been able to. Most dealer inventory is push button, though...

He was directing it to me, Ray. Really? I had no idea that a 4x4 with Ally was available with a manual transfer case! Thanks for the info.

Sorry I have had many of confrontations fro GM pros or this and won many of bets too with the floor shift. Seems west and mid coastall have push and hope. Same here in East but if you have a volume stealer they can get what you want even if you have to stand on there head to order insted of taking inventory that a manager thinks is what JOEQPUBLIC wants.:blahblah:

Mine is an American Tank www.auxtank.com kit. It came complete with a wiring harness, hoses, clamps and a 6-way valve (Pollak). The valve is frame-mounted ahead of the fuel cooler. One toggle in the cab swaps tanks. In-service tank receives recirc flow through the fuel cooler and the in-service tank sender reads out on the factory gauge. The rollover fillerplate, fill line and through-the-cap is all my work. It was tough taking a saw to make a 10" hole in the top of a brandy new shiny $1000 fuel tank!;)
