Chrome air tank installed (with pics)

I am taking my ranger to the next level over the next year. I recently got a chrome 5 gallon air tank from airbagparts. Today I had to install it after I ran to Hose Fast for some fittings. It turned out pretty nice. I like having the extra 5 gallons of air, now I am running two 5 gallon tanks. The compressors run a little longer but not as often.

Wow that look awesome.

Did you do any of the custom work on the bed and suspension?

Thanks Taylor. Not really by myself. Wolf Race Craft did the Z and four link. I built the drive shaft tunnel myself last summer and redid some of the air management. In October I am getting a custom sheetmetal bed with bead rolls built for it. Then spray the new bed sprayed with Line X. Then the trucks going to paint. My painter and I have been talking about doing a color change and some body mods. Things are looking good.

I bet you are ready to hit a switch. It takes time and do lots of planning. I think yours will turn out better.

I think so too, I really like the gray. It will be show truck with a factory paint code. But for an extra grand or so a change is something to consider. I may have some paint renderings done to help make up my mind. My painter is recommending we use BASF Glasurit® line. I still have until December to decide, this is when it gets fun and exciting.

Under the cab, driver side of drive shaft. See the before photo, there are two brass 1/4'' plugs in the *** end of it. I just daisy chained them together.
