Thankz for the advice I'll keep that in mind.

If I had a 4x4. and/or I did this on the weekends, you'd be my hero!

That's some good down home engineering. The window net mod is great. I'm impressed.

The other day I was at Harbor Freight and saw this nice garage air kit.



I bought it an since Saturday April 10th I've been at my truck redoing my air lines, few hours here and there.

My Warn power plant winch has a built in compressor which I use to air up my tires cause I air down every time I go trail riding. So, I ran a line from the winch's compressor to my Two 2.0 galon Vair tanks I carry on board in the bed of my truck. Then I dropped back down from the tanks and supplied air lines to all four tires. Now I can connect my air source to all four tires at the same time and inflate them to the desired psi without having to air them one by one.

I know about the technological advances in air systems which exists out there but I preferred to make my own.

This is to keep the mud and dust from damaging the fittings.

Thankz for the compliments fellows, especially from you Motard, (saying it nicely).

Finally got an opening at Performance Associates in th city of San Dimas CA http://www.pahorsepower.com/index.html to get my tires calibrated to my speedo and the limiter removed. Richy, the owner, will also do away with Roush's tuning and install his own, it should run a lot better, he promised, we'll see.
