i bagged my front this weekend..dumb me didnt take any pictures of the overall process. but here is how i did the gauges. i wasnt really sure how i was going to mount them and i was at autozone and saw this little console for 9.99 and bought it thinking i could mount it somehow on this. so i bought this and a holesaw and drilled out the bottom as well. the other switch next to the gauges are the on/off switch for the compressor. i think it looks good overall and im happy with it. and finaaaally got my front bags on. ill take pics of the truck later im at work but thought id show how i did the gauges. i have to switch the airlines around so the needles are right cause one is orange and one is black on different gauges but i was just happy to get it all up and running. all comments appreciated.

that looks pretty good. the only thing is you gotta take your eyes off the road to see your status....but it's a clean job and looks P.I.M.P.

How come you have the gauges rotated like 90*....I think it would be easiar to read them if they were straight (front-back)...


looks good tho...

cause i didnt run it to an ignition wire and didnt like the idea of it just running to the battery being able to just turn on when im asleep or not in the truck...(if there were leaks and the comp had to kick on)..just the idea if it running to the battery and being able to kick on whenever i didnt like the idea of so i just put a switch on it..doesnt hurt and hey its another switch to play with

what weren't you sure on....you take a test light and go to your fuse box...test until you find one that turns on/off w/the key.
