    Got a good amount of work in this weekend. Mounted the 3 link and bags. Re-ran the fuel lines, brake lines, and wiring to the back of the frame. Got the power wire ran to the back of the cab as well. Got the air lines roughly ran to each bag. Clamped everything that was ready to be secured.

    Wednesday im Hoping to drop the bed back on. And get the air management mounted and plumbed. Also theres a good amount of shit I just ordered from summit that im not waiting on.

    Got the bed on today, plumbed the fuel system, shocks mounted, mocked up the air management and fired it up briefly just to hear it run a little

    Looking pretty snazzy there. The fitment on that rear wheel is crazy.

    I really like it, its super flush but the tire actually rubs the bedside at certain points in the down travel. Raise it an inch and its all good.

    Yea. With the front locked up and the back down it rubs a good amount.

    Swapped some fittings earlier and i aired it all the way up with random Tees and a ball valve and so far its been holding pressure. Got the front shocks mounted up, air lines to front clamped in place and the air management rack finished up. Il be painting it tomorrow and putting some bed floor back in where im mounting it.

    Can't see the pics but I'm hoping you have a ball valve in between the driver and passenger rear bags. you'll get some crazy body roll if you don't seperate the two. I did this on my old 92 when testing my bags before the air management was installed. I would take a turn and the opposite air bag would act like a reservoir.

    Loving your progress by the way

    Got the exhaust done today. Was nice hearing it run again and somehow be a little quieter even though the only change is the header.

    had a small mishap, forgot to tighten one of the hose clamps from the pump to the fuel filter and spewed a shitload of gas all in the garage. Oh well

    Got the air management set up on the rack and wired up. Tested everything, it works, had a fun time wiring the manifold to the controller. Im going to have to dissassemble the manifold at some point because theres a slow leak and it sounds like its possibly coming from there.

    il take and post a good video later

    Pulled the manifold last night cleaned it out. Didnt see anything alarming other than 1 wire that was pinched (and showing some strands) between the solenoids and manifold block. Taped it up since i know its not broken and carefully reassembled it making sure not to pinch any wires. Im going to reinstall today and test it all again. We'll see what happens

    Bench tested the manifold with my 3gal compressor and theres no sound of a leak.

    Pressurized the tank and also no leaky hiss either.

    Hoping its actually fixed, the pinched wire may have been causing the leak depending what it was caught between. Il reassemble hopefully tomorrow and test it all together and see what happens
