    Well,
    I installed my new AirLift air bags on my front end this past weekend. What an ease, bolt in, install. Keeps the front end where it should be with my Fisher 8' HD mounted. Seems to ride nicer now too.

    I thought about X code springs, add-a-leaf helper springs and air bags. I feel I made the right choice, now we just need some snow so I can try em out for real!

    Sorry 'bout that... didn't have the camera handy. But it was still light out after work today and I took a few. The only hole I drilled was for a bracket to hold the filler valves to the grill.
    So - here they are.

    I've seen that before I believe it is for jumping the truck and other vehicles.

    Yep, the connector in my grill is for some long jumper cables I bought. Real easy to jump start another car without opening my hood.

    cretebaby,
    I am running about 30psi in the air bags. (Front only, I don't need 'em in the rear)

    How well does it level the truck out?

    They level it out great. My stock ride height in front was 23 1/2" - 24 1/2". Was lower on the driver side. With the plow, it dropped 1" - 2"... add 30psi - 35 psi and it's level - with the plow on and raised. AirLift says you can put up to 100psi in each bag. Yikes! That would probably lift it several inches! Haven't tried that, don't need it.

    Not all cables are created equally!!!

    Also, you can get just the rubber boot if you want.

    say you want the work LINK to be a link somewhere. just type LINK, then highlight it with your mouse, then click the insert link icon, put the link in there then OK then its done

    you can do that with email too.

    EMAIL me!
