    Why do you need to cut the brake line bracket?

    The lower air bag perch needs room to sit in there. The brake line bracket is in the way

    In these photos you can see how I hid the lines. Driver side goes above the frame and comes around to the passenger side.
    I was able to completely run the passenger side air line through the frame. You can see it in the hole in the frame.
    Air intake is tucked up into the passenger side rear wheel well. There's a factory hole the filter housing clipped into
    Couple shots of the pump assembly. All wiring goes through the frame to the upfitter wiring

    Update on the app: I finally got it to connect through Bluetooth to the pump controller. Took a really long time and many tries and lots of frustration. Now it connects when I switch on the app, then switch on my Aux1. Pretty sweet!

    You can barely tell the bags are in there, however you do feel them. Not nearly as much as when I was using my Sumo Springs.

    I like to hit some speed humps near me my house at 50mph. The truck really sucks them up in factory trim. With the air bags bolted in top and bottom the rear end is limited. With the air bag kit installed, I hit the humps at 50mpg and you can feel the rear end getting held back. I just ordered some Daystar Air Bag Cradles to see if they help

    Cool, looking forward to hear what you think of the Daystar cradles. I want to do that setup so I don't lose all my droop articulation.

    Great instructions and pictures for I was thinking of installing the same set up for when I go camping with a RRT and all equipments in the bed. Did you also installed aftermarket springs in the back too?
