Thanx fellas I appreciate that.
Tooltas,i went with 2 tanks because that is what most of my friends run on their 1:1 trucks.For the compressors I used 5/32,3/32 tubing,.040 rod and .250 sq. tubing.

This build is just bada**! I love all the little details from the air bags, tanks, compressors, frame, brackets, just clean work. Really pumped to see how your going to tie it all together.
