Removed an axle and placed air bags for rear suspension. Currenlty waiting on my 9033 airbags and the drive shaft with carrier to be made.

Klawrence, Looks great bobbed. How are you liking the air ride rear? Any hits (interference) on the Pittman arm? Did you consider keeping or making a 3 (or 4) link rear suspension, like using OEM dogbones? If I missed them, have you posted pictures of the rear suspension in progress?

Just an FYI..I removed the rear axle (the axle that has the ABS on it) for my bob, well after toying with swapping the rears I decided to just swap out the ABS parts. It is a very simple project, pull the axles, swap the hubs with the ABS axles move the ABS sensor to the rear on the truck and assemble. Maybe 2 hours. Just wanted to let anyone know who may accidently leave the non ABS rear on the truck after a bob job.

Loving the air ride, drive shaft installed. Sandblasted, painted the under carriage and rims. Also cut some more out of the bed so I could put the spare back to factory location.

All right now I want one. Not sure if I want a 4 door but a bobbed would be nice. Like your choice of paint. Can you tell where you bought it and what shade it is?

Sorry to dig this back up... I am doing a Pete 379 based air leaf set up on the back of a bobbed tractor. How's this now that you have two years on it. Anything you'd do differently?
