Sitting on 295/55/22 Nitto’s. They’re 34.7” and I added a 1/2” wheel spacer. Sits perfect and rides better than it did stock, by far.

Oh, and that’s my gem of a 67 c-30 dump truck. It has 67k miles on it but about 200 years of rust.

It’s cool as shit looking though. I put two 8” subs under the seat with an amp and two kick panel 6.5” 2-ways with their own amp.

Rebuilt all the door seals, window seals, regulators, handles, etc. I take it to Friday Night on The Square, here in town on occasion. It has strobes, a backup beeper, a stock 283 that’s got a little lope to it. It sounds better than it runs… might hit 60 with the RPM’s pegged.

No, it is the switch you are describing. I have to do it every time I start the vehicle. I didn't think that was too terrible.

I will check out that device you posted, thanks!

FWIW, mine is still in the bag. Haven’t felt like pulling half the console and the center column, yet. Might need to get after that!

There is another device that easily attaches to the battery and alternator harness. I learned about it on the AT4 Forum.

To be clear, do you have the same switch that I do in the dash?

I made the appointment for May 1st to get the Z-shield on the hood, bumper, facia, etc., the front tint, and 10 year Ceramic coating.

Nope. I’m in a 6.2 High Country.

I went with Cognito CA’s, Eibach coilovers for about 2.5” of level and then a 1” block in the rear. I also swapped out the half axles up front for the Trail Boss version. They’re slightly longer and keep the CV’s at a better angle.

Borla touring exhaust and then the Kicker sub GM offers but added a bass knob. Sounds amazing.

I will look at this recipe, I definitely want to do it right. The AT4 does not have as much rake, so hopefully I can find the right combo.

I am intrigued by the longer axle, for sure!

I am sticking with 18s this time...I swear!

That's a beast! Those ramps look like the ones I have.
It is. I was installing an airbag/compressor setup. I’ve always used AirLift but he decided to go with Firestone.

Don’t ever go with Firestone.

There stuff is well made and it’ll live a long life but it was a giant PITA to install. The Wireless One from AirLift has u-bolts that mount the compressor and solenoid (all one unit) right on the side of the frame rail.

The Firestones were separate units and I had to build a base and mount out of aluminum bar stock, mount the Devi es to that, then mount the entire thing on the bed’s cross braces using the heat shield bolts. Way too much work for no good reason.

Just an FYI for anyone thinking about it.
