Change in progress....PMF Air Lift Install

I have a thread in the suspension section but many of my 6.4 friends never visit there and I wanted to share here as well.

I started here Friday...thats 10-11" with 40s on 22" Welds


I am going to a full front and rear 4 link setup with air bags. The lift is from Trevor (NotStock is his username) @ Precision Metal Fab Disclaimer - Precision Metal He has been great to work with...fair pricing and a product tats built in the US by americans....and with the upmost of quality and precision. I had everything powdercoated the same Orange thats on the Harley trucks as I have a paint scheme for the truck in mind.

The ride height will be at about 14" and I am switching to 44" Military tires. The lift is adjustable from about 10" to about 20" but as mentioned above ride height will be set at 14" +/-

I got the rear lift in this last week and started opening it up and working on the truck Friday afternoon...as of today Sunday....I am just about done with the rear...the front I should have in hand end of this coming week or first of next its at powdercoat right now...

Here are a few progress pics...enjoy.

Do the bags take the place of the springs entirely in the rear

Thanks.....I understand about the link....no prob.


Yes theres no leafs at all in the rear...complete removal, and the bags in place using 4 link bars and a track bar to keep the axle centered.

Depending on bag pressures thats either gonna be one stiff azz ride or a really spongy one. Thats my only concern. Otherwise that looks like a top notch kit

Everything is set up to take into account the best ride based on the PSI of the bad at my desired ride height.

Meaning I chose a 14" lift as my daily driving ride height...so the brackets were designed around tat using the bag specs to provide a nice ride....course aired all the way up it would be still probably..

But at the designed ride height, and good shocks...the ride should be way better than stock.

Im sure he engineered it well. Looks beefy as hell.
