E99 Dually Project (by a cheapskate)

After having my e99 for a year I have finally got around to making a project thread. I purchased my truck a year ago for $5,000 dollars and it had been my high school project. At that point it had a flatbed Super cab 4x4 6 Speed XLT 265,000 miles with a ranch hand brush guard. I bought it knowing that it would need some work. The flat bed looked good but was rusty to the point of being structurally unsound, it needed an alternator, starter, and it cut out at wide open throttle, and small things in the interior didn't work (power locks and windows). It also had driver side cab corner rust and needed paint. At this point (10,000 miles later and a senior in high school) I have installed a regular dually bed, new back bumper, 05 front end, Leveling Kit, and I am in the process of doing injectors right now. At this point I have about $6,000 in the swap after selling the flatbed and brush guard that were on it when I got it. The next thing on my list is paint. The pics go from oldest to newest.

I just ran a few tests with my new scanner. No major diagnostics yet, just scanned for a few basic trouble codes and heres what I got: No major engine codes with basic tests....but a load of electrical and brake problems.

Looks like you have done a lot of work to it already and it's looking better all the time.
Good luck on getting all of the things done to it that you want.

Thanks it's getting there. I want to get it painted and then I think I'll do some minor engine mods like custom tuning, a ww2, stage 2 injectors, and possibly a ported compressor housing.

I've been having no start issues, so I just ordered a new IPR.

Another update, my IPR came in, I installed and I'm still getting code p1283, no start and low ICP pressure. There is bare copper showing on the connection to the IPR harness and ICP harness. I have an extra UVCG harness and the injector leads happen to be the same as the IPR. I'm gonna splice a new section in and see if that does the trick.

Here some pics of the IPR removal tool that I built. I saw this design using a flat piece of steel on the internet and if I had to it again I would have used a piece of rebar or something similar.The flat piece took up a lot of room. I had to drill a larger hole through the center of the socket for the IPR to fit.

I got it running, IPR was was not the problem. My IPR Wiring however was a different story. Both wires had bare copper showing and were touching. I pulled them apart and it started like a champ. Runs great, this is the first time that Ive started it with new injectors.

Im finishing up my 05-07 front end install for the next couple of days and then I'm having it painted at the end of this week or the middle of next week. Ill post pics of finished product.

Upcoming performance mods include custom tuning, water meth, and a ww2.

New Headlights! They seem to be built well and they were reasonably priced. I'm going to liberally use silicon when I install them so hopefully no condensation can get in. Before I can install the headlights I have to install my 05 header panel and do some minor wiring.

My truck is back from paint!!! I am pleased with the results that I got for the price that I paid. My 07 front end swap is also finally complete, I took a few crappy phone pics of the truck pre paint and a I have a few more crappy phone pics post paint before my new front end was installed. Ill take some tomorrow with my digital camera to show the full truck and finished product.

I also just ordered a 7" Caterpillar stack from Smeding Diesel so I can finally get rid of the hack job exhaust that the previous owner put on there.

PRE PAINT:






POST PAINT:







And the Stack I ordered. Mine will be a little smaller but its basically the same.



Next on the list is TUNING!!!!!!!
