And here is another one that is popular.
Definitely looks cleaner after I did the mod. :great:
Those are some good write ups. I will have to see if the base is broken or not. I just kind of peeked at it. I may do your mod since I work in a factory with lots of spare wire that I can use.
finally sound deadened the inside of my door panels
Check the mod list of my money pit below and my photos...... Enough said! LOL.
- Loaded the bed and cab full of things to move into storage
- Drove 1.5 hours and unloaded the truck
- Installed a pair of 2" diameter expandable rubber freeze plugs into the 2" diameter holes (that exist to allow me to open the draincocks on each tank and drain them) on the bottom of the OBA system's air tank carrier
- Measured and cut two bolts to length for use securing the front air manifold of the OBA system to its bracket, once finished
- Measured and cut two bolts to (a different) length for use securing the rear air manifold of the OBA system to the frame rail
- Teflon taped and installed 1/2" MPT compression fitting (for 1/2" OD tubing) into the rear air manifold of the OBA system
- Teflon taped a 1/4" MPT compression fitting (for 1/2" OD tubing) for use at the rear bulkhead connector of the OBA system
- Teflon taped a 1/4" MPT quick disconnect fitting for use at the rear bulkhead connector of the OBA system
- Cut the stamp-crushed end off a 60 foot coil of 1/2" OD annealed copper tubing to provide a clean compression fitting connection
- Laid out all tools necessary to plumb a 1/2" OD hard line from the rear air manifold to the rear bulkhead connector of the OBA system, tomorrow
- Installed the rear quick disconnect and dust/debris cap for the OBA system
- Ran a 1/2" OD annealed copper hard line from the rear air manifold location to the rear quick disconnect location
- Connected the hard line to the rear quick disconnect and the rear air manifold using 1/4" MPT to 1/2" OD compression fittings
- Installed/attached the rear air manifold to the frame rail
- Installed an under-hood LED light strip
- Ran the positive and negative wires for the under-hood LED strip but DID NOT connect them (b/c I'm waiting on a switch)
I'm starting to pile up some new parts for mods this spring... lights, grill and suspension upgrades. just waiting for good weather to start installing...:)
