    Well, several projects at once, really. After a long time waiting, I found all of the brackets and pulleys that I have needed to install on-board air on my truck. Got em from a junk yard for $57. I am taking care of some other problems while I am at it, therefore striping all the front sheetmetal off the truck. The passenger side was pretty much falling off anyway. That is one of the fixes/changes that I am doing for this project. Also changing the front grill to expanded steel.
    Here is what I have done so far:

    Great site man! Some great info... I can hardly wait to see the full writeup on the onboard air. I tell ya you got the right idea... taking the fenders off is the only way to go w/ a lifted rig if you are gonna be working there for any length of time LOL [​IMG].
