Any photos of how you added air ride? Will make things a lot better when driving to shows as far away as 1000 miles. I do not have any photos now but will post later

How does the air bags under the cab interact with the butterfly hood? I was under the impression that when the cab bounced around on air ride, the fixed mounted hood would bang against the cowl damaging the hood and the front of the cab.

I forgot to get pictures under the hood. Will be out of town for a week or so, can do later. But the grill is no longer supported by the firewall and the butter fly hood is allowed to float on pins that it hinges on. Nylon glides support the back edges of the hood on the firewall. The props that hold the hood for service are replaced with rods for support. There is little movement of the cab, only moves about 1inch up and down but smooths out the bumps. At the firewall 1/8 inch maybe.

kubotaman, my apologies, I was supposed to get those photos for you. I'll see what I can do, and if av8or does also, you should have all the photos you want of the how the hood is supported.

No worries Matt, take your time. I may have to do this conversion over the winter.

av8or, do you have a parts list you used on the cab?

Thanks
