Picked up some boulders. Air bags helped a lot and actually rode better with the load.  First pic is fully loaded. Remember the load of gravel last summer. What a big difference!

I have a set of Firestone air bags on my 06' Dodge ram crew cab. Without them the truck had so much wobble I couldn't get over 55 mph.  With the bags ( which are set up so I adjust individually ) I cant tell there is a trailer behind it.

Fudge.... I had an airbag failure.  I came out of the hardware store and saw an air line hanging down. The elbow fitting on top of the bag had come apart.  On closer inspection at home, the 2 bolts on top of the airbag had pulled the female end out of the top of the airbag.
I only used 50lbs with the boulders.

Thinking back,  I did remove the spacers I originally used since it seemed real bouncy.   Thought I was hitting the internal rebound bumper. Without the spacer, maybe the gap is too wide.  Any ideas??

Closer inspection today. Luckily the female end to the top bolts dead head. So I put some gorilla glue and hammered them back in. Seems snug enough to bolt into. Elbow fitting was a goner. I measured the distance between the top plate and bottom plate. It was 8" and the instructions specify 5-7" so the spacers are going back in. Unfortunately I trimmed the ubolts too close for the spacers to fit. Looks like I've gotta order parts. Sheesh...

Danger Dave gave me a bull bar some time back from an RC that he was gonna scrap.  I planned to use it on the 76 RC but the Warn winch bumper changed that plan and it wouldn't fit any longer.

Plan B was to use it on the Ram. Had to do a little trimming and welding but that's just part of the fun.

Thanks, well I actually took it off and re-engineered it.  The bar was real close to the grille so I cut it and welded on some flat bar to push it away from the grille. So far so good.  I'll post up some pics when I get done.

the bumper looks good. almost going to have to do something like that for my 89 eventually. the list of work that i need to do seems to be getting longer especially with the addition of a 4th vehicle.

whats the 360 for? don't all your vehicles have good engines in them?

Carter comes and goes.  Low compression high mile motor.  The quick fix would be to drop in the 360 and be done but...
The mind starts dreaming of upping the cubic inches for the Ram and convert to 4x4. I have a harness, intake and TBI to convert it. Not sure how it would work with the cam though.
