    Got the wiring and fuel lines worked out for the dual tanks, The switching valve with pump switching work great for the few seconds I tested it. Made up a wiring harness up and it was fine.
    While doing all of this, moved the ground block to the engine compartment, was under the dash which was a pain to get to. I also put a power supply in the engine compartment, this will be activated thru a solenoid powered by the key. This will get away from everything going the ignition switch. There are fuses for each line which will be easy to access.

    Worked on programing fuel gauges. Got the under seat tank programmed. Could not get the fuel gauge for the rear tank programmed, may have a bad sending unit.

    Pulled the Jeep out of the garage and started it up with this sitting on the manifold. Had a fuel leak in the line from the Force Fuel to the TB, at 58psi you can dump a lot of fuel on the ground in a short amount of time. Jeep ran good at idle, better than with the carburetor I had. Got a couple more adjustments to do, then will take it for a drive.

    Got the heater from Summit. Put power brakes on, this was the only place for the heater.

    Right, Im doing the same set up, I got the same parts you have, in fact I bought the steering column positioning plate from you if you recall. about a year ago. I've stalled a little bit on my project.

    Another question for you, did the heater come with controls for it as well?

    All the heater has is a 3 speed fan control switch.

    Can you please take a picture at this same angle but a little further back? I would appreciate it.
