Dont know if you are doing a tri-drive, air ride pusher, or air lift pusher.  If just a pusher axle (lift or not)  google image search "Newway air lift pusher" and scroll through.   There are some good shots in there once you start scrolling down of some actually applied and top views with lines, etc.  Here is a sample of what I found with much larger pix available if you do this search and then go direct to the corresponding websites.  A couple of different styles....

 

Good luck.

Justin,

 

For what it's worth, once the wrecker bed is on the truck, who will be able to see the wiring or air lines? Unless you are going to display the underside, I don't know if it's necessary.

 

Seeing your WIP pictures might actually get me to build mine that I bought years ago when it first came out!

Yeah your right about the hydronics but I'll prolly still run the air lines for the satisfactory of knowing they are there lol.

Thanks it's been a fun build!
