First challenge is to add another muffler and get exhaust behind the rear bumper. Thinking of trying to route between the spring pack and the shock mount, while also keeping it low enough for axle to have some down travel. And fix some exhaust leaks.

I usually do my own builds, but needed more of a ready runner this time.

I’ve never payed attention what’s the difference in a Denali cluster and a regular Cluster.
On the Denali cluster, the speedo is 120 MPH, the gauge needles are white until you out on the lights, then they turn yellow. And the background nbers turn a bluish green color when you turn on the lights. The OE cluster is only 100 MPH, the needles are yellow always, and the background green when the lights are on. I do push my truck over 100 MPH from time to time, so for me, that was the main reason I wanted a Denali cluster.

Frank wouldn't 100 if you dropped him out of an airplane!
Well, before I rebuilt the rear end, and still had the OE 342s I pushed it to 5200 RPMs in OD. This was long before I did the Denali cluster swap. I figure I was doing about 140ish MPH or so. Now that I have 373s it may do that fast, but I would be at 5500 RPMs or more. It pulled good to 5200, no problems, and the power never faded. Just a good straight pull all the way to 5200. I was on a very long free way in the middle of no where. At that time, GPSing the speed never crossed my mind. Now I wish I had. With the rear end rebuild, I gained 300 RPMs at speed. So now at 77 MPH, I am turning 2700 RPMs. Before I was at 2400 at 77 MPH. The 373s do pull better, and I love the Eaton trutrack.
