    No axle isn't moved forward, and the watts is adjustable and I haven't figured out my ride height yet, so not sure how it's all going to come together as far as final settings yet.

    I didn't have much option, about the only place it would fit, a good majority of people that do air ride trucks, don't run the exhaust out the back because it's a lot of work and their isn't much room to run it typically, I had to another set of exhaust tips today because with bigger tips there isn't any room for them when it's on the ground. it's all very tight.

    Their are 4-links going forward, two links are going back, the ones going back are lift bars only, they have a dog bone link to attach to rear axle so it doesn't affect pinion angle or fight with the front 4-links.

    We have been going at it over here, making some good progress, I have begun painting parts and pieces as well. My internet went out at the house because of a storm and I usually do my updates there but we are making progress either way.

    Hopefully get the rear shocks mounted today and apart to start prepping the frame for epoxy and a light coat of liner.

    I need a sub box for this thing, any suggestions. Thinking about the factory one, but i have a 10" RE sub and not sure how it would work in a factory box, and I do not have one that I can test fit and try out..The factory boxes were 10" correct???

    Internet is back up at the house so here are a few more pics for you guys..

    I bought a fuel cell for a 04 Ram and apparently their are some differences on the SRT because we had to notch the front corner to fit and modify the cross member a little bit. but all is good now.

    We also had to modify the evap system to clear the tank.
    We mounted the valve on the outside of the frame rail and ran the hoses over to the inside to the canister.

    And we ended up mounting the abs on the side of the frame rail as well.

    Was pretty pumped I was able to keep the stock exit location exhaust.
    It seems most guys that bag trucks just do a turn down in front of the axle because of the extra work to bring it out the back.

    I did however have to run smaller exhaust tips because the bigger ones would get crushed when down..

    A little test fit of the JMB cold air intake. Had to shorten the tube just a little and narrow the intake box but it's going to work out rather well.

    We epoxy primed the frame and bed lined it for durability.

    Thanks guys, I have about 3 weeks to finish this without cutting any corners, you think we can make it? lol.. I'm still on the fence.

    And no I didn't, i was always told if I did the dash light would be on... What's the trick to do it without dash lights, and what are the side effects of doing so..
