Electronics wise, the Performance Automatic 4L70E’s Simple Shift transmission controller was mounted (beneath the bench seat, where we’ve got plenty of room for all sorts of goodies), harnesses routed, and connections integrated with the Chevy Performance LS harness. The final bits and pieces of the chassis wiring, such as the instrument gauge leads, cooling fan, etc. were strung and connected. And while Jason was busy building the AirRaid 4-inch universal air intake and installing the brand-new Speedway Muscle Car shifter (from Lokar), fitted and floor-mounted in the cab, the Speedway crew themselves put the finishing touches on installing and fitting the front sheetmetal clip and hood, front and rear bumpers, and dressing up the doors appropriately (see photos).

So, what’s left now? Well, throwing a driveshaft in, topping off all the fluids, making sure everything’s good and tight, and the most important job of all: firing the LS3 truck up for the first time, hearing the Hooker/Speedway exhaust (in the process of being installed) roar, and making her go!
