The one who got the back would claim victory!Make them rock, paper, scissors for who gets to ride in back.
Thanks Pete. I picked up a jump seat from the boneyard. It was out of a Dodge but it's just a bit too wide. Was only $13. Still shopping for another.I had a chev 3500 basic stripped truck. It didnt have arm rest or center jump seat. Picked one up on Ebay for 250 bucks. It was a brand new take out. Had a fold down seat that made into a nice counsel. Flipped it up-nice jump seat with seat belt.
Your truck is nice. Would make a sweet camper too.
So I am clear you have two 12v isolated ground leece Neville ALTs setup like a standard cucv?So as I understand this, 2 of the Leece Neville 12V alts replaced the 24V units and the DUVAC. All of the factory wiring not used was closed up with shrinkwrap and secured out of the way. Since these are self excitiing and had the isolated ground, they were wired directly to the batteries. Top alt charges the front battery and the bottom charges the second. It's working wonderfully. Roy even checked voltage at the factory volt meter and made a scale so I can get real close at estimating exact voltage. Its running right at the high side of the green. Not a single was was cut or removed and he even put in fusible links ob both alternators. The last thing I'm worried about is a charging system put together by Roy. Few pics.

I just put a nice bench seat out of a red Burban in mine. It worked out really well. If I ever have a hankering, I can always put the buckets back in.After getting to drive this to the store a few times I must say, the bucket seats in these trucks are much more comfy than bench seat in my M1008. Now I have to come up with a jump seat to install between them. 2 kids, don't want to hear one cry when I leave without him.
