Alright, it has taken me a while since i trailered my truck to my uncles shop to finish all my baggin, he had a lot of good tools and an A/C shop :D . Wanted to take my time and make sure to do everything right. Anyways, I'm running 2b6's in front with relocated shocks, drop spindles (cant tell cuz of the tires hittin fenders). Rear, I am running Jason's 5-link with super pivots. Running 5/8 airline, i even got the airline to run through the inside of the notch. 1/2" fills and 3/8" dumps on the tanks. 2 450s and 2 5 gal tanks, 110/145 PS for now. Gauges in a triple pillar pod (thanks Big Mike :) )Dumped exhaust with a turndown. I need to get some pics of the frame and all the time we took making it look clean, maybe later. And yes, my tubs and notch cover are a little bigger than usual, but hey, better safe than sorry and it adds character i think :p . Who knows, maybe a narrowed rear end and reworked link system in the future with some big tires, heh.

Also, want to say thanks to Dave for the awesome how-to, very helpful for a first time bagger. Now for the pics.

Feel free to comment, harass, or whatever, heh.

Gauges weren't too bad, i wired the back light up to it while it was sitting outside my truck, then ran 1/8 gauge line from the pillar back to the bed aprrox. where the tee's would be. Trying to jam all 5 lines behind the dash is a little pain, but it can be done.

Also, I'm planning on getting some 18 or 20s intro twisted vista IIs, i love those wheels.

Your air management setup is amazing. It's one of the cleanest in-bed setups I've ever seen. The way you've got the tanks connected is cool and even the vavles are setup clean. I love it! Oh... truck looks good too. :D

Thanks for all the comments. That isnt originally how i planned on doing my air management, but it worked out in the end. And I actually did have to assemble it outside the bed and then set it in there, heh. It was a pain, but worth it.

On my taillights, its a love/hate kind of thing. I was originally going to install them the normal way, but I wanted to be a lil different and make people notice them. While taking it to get aligned, i saw two guys point at them, this was with it being all aired up and looking stock height. I dumped the rear a lil when they pointed, think it surprised them.

I used to not like the color and was going to have it painted a kandy or cobalt blue, but I changed my mind and decided to keep it. Like you said, its different, plus its more of a hotrod color from the 50s and 60s, and I'm trying to go for more of a clean hotrod look. I'm also wanting to add some sort of thin pinstripe flame along the body line and have it fade at the rear where my body line fades.
