Carli Pintop Install Question??

In the process of having my pintop 4.5 installed on my 2013 f250 and wondered what other's have done for the ABS line that runs down the radius arms and also where the extened brake lines attach to?. I thought from the system photo that it came with another bracket but mine did not(unless I misunderstood what the tech was saying).. Is it suppose to come with another bracket? Ill attach a pic or 2

The ABS line also connects at the frame, disconnect at that point, lower it so you can now connect to the radius arm. Where you made the disconnection from the frame you can hold it with a zip tie. Your brake lines look ok, what you need is the clip off the old brake lines.

FYI when i installed my 37`s i had to move the front bumper forward 1/2 inch. I bought bolts that were 1/2 inch longer and nuts larger in dia. to fit over the bolts and 1/2 thick to space between the bumper and frame. My rims are -6.

Thanks for that info! Would they have rubbed or was the clearance just not enough for your liking?

Exactly. We pull the ABS line retainer from the fender well and drill a hole a few inches lower then zip tie it. Sage just lets his hang! As for the extended brake lines, they're designed to allow full droop of the 4.5" system without relocating the factory junction! I would recommend re-fitting the junction back to the factory location as that was how we designed the system. As for the misalignment spacers, I apologize. King has done this one a few occasions but we sent them out yesterday and expedited them!
