Still Working on frame
Yea Frank I can't tell you guys how much help this has been. If there wasn't the info like this I imagine I would never have even bothered with this kind of modification to a Truck. I'm going to post a pic or two on the frame mods I completed so far. I'm setting the rear up for the 4-link, the bags and shocks. Well Frank I'm probably going with the 3/8" since speed is not an issue for me. I'll bet that the 3/8" will be plenty fast enough for this old guy!! I also do like the computer control for the inside the vehicle. I will keep updating this post on how I'm progressing because i hope i get an Honest opinion on how it looks or if i'm doing it right. So be prepared for a lot more pics to come. Alrighty then guys take care and Thanks so much for all the info!!

bud, i haven't had any experience with the easystreet kit but i've heard some good things about it. The 1500 kits don't look bad, and it does look like they have one that comes with 3/8" if you want. I still can't get that video over to josh, but once i figure it out you can see the 1/2" speed, and 1/4" speed and go from there, if it was me and the two systems were very close in price, i'd go with 1/2", because you can always slow down your system easily and for almost no money, but if you want it faster... you'll have to get new valves and line and that's not too cheap. I'm glad to hear you know what you want, glad we could help! be sure to keep us updated

Looking forward to my Purchase!!
Well guys I can tell you that I'm a bit excited to purchase a system since I've never had anything thing like this in a vehicle of mine. If they have a 3/8" system Kevin and the speed thing is really not a major issue to me I'll have to take a look at it more (web site). Oh it was "C" Channel was it Dave? Oh by the round sides it looks like it was tubing instead. It's just that the brackets will be an easy fab and this will save a bit of cash for something else for the truck. Remember us old guys have a higher power to answer to; The Wife!!! This will also give me a custom fit for my truck too. Thanks again for the feedback guys I'm pretty confident on what I need to do.

|Simplicity||You cant go wrong with a crafters package! and yes 1/2" line is plenty fast enough for anyone. I would recomend 3/8" But I know the kit comes with half.|

|budthespud||I was just looking at the easy street crafter kits with the large bags. this looks like a good kit and $1500(US) does seem to be a good price. Fabricating the mounts etc would be easy to do, even those shock mounts Dave are just tubing that is coped to suit the installation. Since I'm going with the 4-link I would rather fabricate my own mounts. This way I can install them in the best possible position. I want to do this myself so I can help someone that may want to do the same as me (fabrication part). Now is this easy street kit a good one?? It's got the 1/2" size that you guys were talking about for fast inflation/deflation.|

|BIGSKY||FlamedFB, you got a PM...|

|flamedfordbronco||yeah i installed the coolride system in my car (not the same valves that 66 is talking about though) in just a few days, and it was my first time doing anything like it, it's pretty easy, i'm sure you'd have no problem. the only welding is the shock relocation. 66, how did you host that video and put it up? i've been trying to get a video from my computer to hotrodders and it isn't working|

|Simplicity||Well to compare apples to apples, the AirRide Tech ARC4700e is also the same Retail $1495.00. But this system is better and has more features, that is what I was pointing out.|
