Installing the fuel lines, starting with the feed line. Is this the best way (original route)?
Tried running it on passenger side but a lot of heat sources there.
Also any preferences on drive shafts? Considering The Drive Shaft Shop or Denny's.

Any assistance appreciated!

I got my d/s from Strange. All I can say is it's a work of art. My drive train has never been so smooth.

Was that a custom order? I don't see it listed on their site.
Yes. I went with the 3". Also got the billet pinion yoke and trans yoke. Super quality. You need to measure your distances. They have a file on how do it the way they want. Pretty easy. Ordered it over the phone with the numbers they needed. Came out perfect. It is helpful to have an extra set of hands while measuring. I know my ride height so I just jacked the axle up to the right spot and measured from there. Obviously you don't want the axle hanging down.

Thanks Pronto great info!

Taking my time on this fuel line kit. I've tried 3 different ways just on the feed line.. Going towards the drivers wheel well liner seems to be the best compromise.
The next issue is filter mount and rear feed line routing.
1 Filter on cross member with Rivnuts.
2 Filter on the LCA brace we welded in, using nuts/bolts. ** my preference-strong and well shielded**
I don't car for the Floorplan mount method.

Rear line has that funky fitting I may just replace with a 90 degree.

What's everyone's opinion on the upper shock tower brace? I'm leaning towards no, but if I'm going to...now is the time. Thanks

Going to end up mounting the fuel filter to the chassis/belly pan. Made this mounting plate up, mounts from inside, screws are welded on. High strength steel should help with the thin guage its mounting to.

Thanks!
I bet your method worked great.!
I ran into an issue with the first one, so since I needed to remake it I improved it a bit.
Issue was the distorted head 1/4 28 nuts, they destroyed the bolts on first run down. Initial threads were so bad I tried cutting the bolts down. Worked but not to my standards. On the second one my first preference was for bull nose bolts but couldn't locate any. I always consider the follow on maintenance aspect. Which is one reason I used a plate, only one person will be needed to install/change the filter
