Added Air-Lift Air Bags...



Install was extremely easy. Took about an hour total, and half of that was routing the air lines. No on board compressor yet. Rides Great at 15 psi. 100 psi is max. Haven't gone that high yet.

Lights look good! I am the same, a little too nervous to do that job.

Love the tow mirrors! I am wanting to do the same to mine but it will be quite pricy for the heated with turn signals.

Installed the Airaid system this afternoon. Not nearly as loud as I expected. Mind you, my last truck was a V6 N!$$*n with a Cool-Vue system, that was very loud and droney. Only went a couple of miles today with it, so really no feel to it yet. I have a 50 mile trip on Monday that will tell me how it is running. It does clean up the engine bay quite a bit. Can't believe how big and crazy the factory tube was.

Today I installed a Prodigy P2 Brake Controller. Pretty straight forward install. The supplied connector has about 3 feet of wire and easily connects to the factory wires. I watched a video on etrailer.com and found the mounting location that used existing screws, so no new holes in the dash. Looking forward to purchasing a travel trailer very soon, now that the truck is ready to tow. I chose this controller due to some strong recommendations from friends and family that tow campers. Some very nice features with it are it is self-leveling (works on uneven terrain), several boost settings to apply trailer brakes faster than truck brakes to save wear and tear on the truck and it works in reverse.

That's some good looking summer fun. It's not squatting the truck a bit.

Truck looks awesome Steve. If you get a chance could you take some pics of the wiring for those cab marker lights? I want to gather as much reference material I can before I buy mine. I'd really appreciate it.
