wow. some of those came out fuzzy as hell.

and yes it is still a stupid mess in the truckbed. but fortunatly its just a mess and not hacked. granted this took forever to do. but i did save myself a ton of time by pretaping all the fittings last week.

edit, i do plan on cleaning up mysetup in the bed when my new switchbox gets here.

eh i figured but i am kinda lazy.

i was told earlier by my gf after her looking thru all the pics of the timeline of my truck and said that my truck has come along way and that i ahve put alot of work into it, and i said thanks and that im proud but i also was thinking its not even close to anything ive seen out alot of trucks.

just keep doing it right the first time, dont get lazy and throw shit together. Further more do research or else you will end up like me on my 3rd attempt at my air suspension. Costing me 3 times as much, granted I did cop out and go all out but regardless.

I would roll that 2 tone anyday.

thats my plan, i dont really wanna rush woking on it or ill end up with something broken or hacked, doing what i did today took about 4 hours just bc of what i had to undo and redo. took my time, kept my calm and thought my moves throu. i tell ya what having the right tools as well as an air comp and airtools helps tons, (was really the first time ive used airtools on my truck the rest of the time has been hand tools).

tomorrow night is my last night at work so next week when i get a chance to put on the spindles i should have plenty time. got any tips on changeing them, ive reaserched but i could use tips to help make it any easier.

lossen the castle nuts, dont take them off. hit right by the balljoint with like a 3lb sledge a couple good times, and it should pop loose. then take the castle nuts all the way off and put the new spindle on.
