From lowered to lifted but still riding on air.

Finished the first part of my custom air suspended lift. My taller front air bags and upper bag mount cups will be here 2morrow along with my 2" rear upper spacers. I'll install them after i get home. Sitting at around a 6.5" lift on the small air bags and upper brackets. Installing 2" taller(extended) air bags, 2.5" taller upper brackets and 2" upper spacers in the rear this week. Should be able to ride around at a 8" lift at a lower pressure for a super smooth ride. Will be able to air it up to the supensions extension limit which will be right around 10" in the front. Not interested in installing the crossmember drop brackets like other kits use.

Truck on its trip to the beach this past weekend. It's quite nice being able to level it out when you have weight in the bed.


Just under ride height.


Sitting at ride height in the rear with the current setup. Going higher this week.


Nose aired down to install the 87mm TB and clean my Vararam.

This is for those who don't know my truck and how it used to look.



It looked Kool sitting low but got annoying after almost 3 years. My neighborhood floods at least once a year which makes it hard to drive through.

Way more enjoyable being lifted. Rides way better. Gets way more attention and everybody seems to love it.

Yes it is painted satin black. I had that done over 2 years ago. Going to be buffing and polishing it to a high gloss to go with my new theme.

Tow hooks won't work on this custom fit HD bumper. I would have to get some custom made. I might have a skid plate made and have some put on there.
