So I finally began tearing the truck apart so I can redo my air management with accuair. Everything worked fine except for a particular valve sticking occasionally. Also picked up a welder so I can actually do some things myself lol.

My to do list
Install vu4
Install switch speed controller
Rerun lines to 3/8 (currently 1/2)
Replace all fittings
All digital gauges
Install front shocks

After getting the bed off I was pleased to see everything still looked good since it was installed in 2011.

Anyways onto the pics

Bed removed

Cleaned everything off and got an idea of where everything is going to mount.

The vu4 off to the right between the tank and compressor and the guage sensors to the left. The ecu for te switch speed I'm going to mount in the cab behind the seat

all these are going out a hole behind my seat at the bottom of my cab. they are also all lummed and ran alongside the factory harness for the taillights and such.

since my bed is still off i went ahead and replaced my fuel pump since i think it was on its way out. truck would sometimes start up and die. then would start right up the second time

any pictures of your front set up?
it is just bags and cups

truck is coming along Chase!
thanks sir

so i have left the truck aired up for a week and my front passenger and rear driver bag have a super small leak. the truck barely went down tho i am guessing because they offset each other?

fuel pump also did not fix my "start then die..start and runs fine" problem but atleast i got it out of the way.

hopefully this weekend the bed will go back on
