Everyone's is shipped and should be there if not any day now. I sent about 12 kits out on Friday, and the last batch of 6 or 7 was shipped on Saturday. All 2-3 day USPS which puts deliveries around yesterday or today.

The only ones I have left are @tpr103 and Ray (both local guys waiting for pickup), Dustin Sanders waiting balance, and John Bates awaiting the balance, but I've emailed John probably half a dozen times and never heard anything back. Does anyone know who he is? I didn't have a screen name linked to his real name, and he's not responding to email, and it's a generic name to find on FB.


If anyone else is interested in a kit at normal price, I have 10 more built (5 OEM hat versions & 5 billet hat versions) with the remainder of the materials I ordered since I got enough for 80 kits.

I got my kit yesterday and opened it up today. Super disappointed is all I can say..........


It seemed awful light compared to what others have posted when opening up their box.


I opened it up and gave the box a good tap and about 50 pieces of paper came out with some polaroid photos of someone. I looked at the paper slips and they were all "Good for one free massage. Must redeem in person.". WT......

Naw, it's all good. I did receive the box yesterday but I haven't opened it yet. Should I be concerned, Josh? Just messing with you.


I'm sure everything I bought is in the box. Now I need to get it on the truck. Thanks again, Josh.

Why do I get the feeling there is nothing in that basement but your "tools" and a tear stained mattress?

Just waiting for a day off to actually install it but got the wiring kit integrated in with the stock wiring and wrapped the stock portion with tech flex like the kit (along with the 340 pump install). Using factory style fabric tape just like on my reworked engine harness where I cant use heat shrink.

650 ohms? Where are you measuring between? Your ground location to which reference point?

650 ohms is extremely high. It should be less than like 5. Almost negligable of a difference between just touching the leads together and measuring the resistance of the leads (and tolerance/slop of the meter) and your ground location to a good solid ground.


Also just a heads up for anyone else, I have a couple extra kits available for normal price.

Ground point of my kit, to the ground link on the frame.
Something is up with my meter though, I try to measure resistance on the leads and it only shows 1. Same when I put it on the frame. I measured using the diode feature and it gave me 650ish.

I’ll have to measure with another meter I got.

Any update?

Doesn't need to be a fancy meter, I actually use the freebies from Harbor Freight most of the time just because they're smaller to grab than my bigger fluke, and when you're just doing very simple measurements and 12v checks it's perfectly fine. My HF one will measure about 3-5 ohms on the leads themselves doing a lead check, and really such a short ground run from the cab bracket to frame should be along the same lines, of within the noise/tolerance of the meter leads.

Deposit sent!
Hey, I don't have my list in front of me, so I may have very well arleady gotten you taken care of (70+ kits the names become a blur from the top of my head lol) but I don't have any open deposits on kits right now (besides Dustin, Rich, & Ray), so if I didn't already get you one send me a PM with your info.


I do have a handful of extra kits availble at normal pricing if anyone else needs one. Just shoot me a PM :bigtu

Jason has measured this on his truck. I forget who he is on here.

He measured this,
From battery ground to frame 0 Ohms.
From battery ground to bracket 0.2 Ohms.
There is a nut to hold the fuel lines. If you use the, then it’s a better ground.

I will measure mine when I get a chance. Just been busy fixing other issues I got on the truck.

Tis confusion! Here is a pic of the wires coming out of my existing Fore hat. I have three reds and three blacks for power/ground for the pumps (only using two) a yellow fuel sender wire and one other black wire. Not much for electrical but it seems I'm missing the second wire for the two wire harness to the relay. In the pic the lone black wire is connected to a pink wire coming out of the harness. I'm sure the answer is simple, I just don't know what it is.

Not quite sure what your question is. That fore hat has 3 red & 3 black pump wires.....2 red & 2 black go to my dual hat harness which has 2 red & 2 black. The last red & black go to my 3rd pump harness orange & black that allow independent control of the 3rd pump.

Nothing is missing in your pic, they're all there.
