Dayum I like that look---very nice!

I'd have gone for another splashy color---thinking yellow, orange, red or blue? No matter the satin black is great!

Yeah, for the effort black is a little uninspired. But I did do this to match my ARB rear cover!

finished the install of the gas springs to assist the pop top.
not quite finished with installing everything on the roof, but these added an extra inch of height to the top.


right now they are 80-pound springs and a bit much but with two 41-pound solar panels and some misc stuff to be installed, they should work.
and if not, just buy some heavier springs!
before - the top would need the corner leg supports and it was a tight fit to engage the legs.
after - there is about 3/4-inch gap under the leg supports.

And finished the revamp of the top bolts with weld studs, fender washers and custom 1/8" aluminum plates...
all covered with three coats of white monstaliner - https://www.sportsmobileforum.com/fo...se-9109-3.html


Also fab'd a custom regulated return that is waaaaaay better than stock for a 6.0.
Fuel pressure values with a brand new HFCM:
* before = 55psi idle & 34 psi WOT
** after = 59psi idle 56.5 WOT
still have injector issues (most likely due to the "before" fuel pressure), but upgrading the entire fuel supply from the tank to the engine and back will help overall engine health.

What did you do to your SMB today?

Iím now bagged.....again!
I had installed these rear air bags years ago as a solution to the original suspension setup, then removed them once I had upgraded to Deavers and better shocks.
Theyíve been siting in the garage for years since and I decided that I might once again need them. Surprisingly, no cracks or rot!
Since weíve been full timing and towing our Lance trailer up to AK, down the west coast and back (didnít take the trailer to Baja) and with a few more miles to go, hopefully! I realized bags would help level the rear end and take some load off the Deavers when towing. I wanted an easier solution to airing them up than having to drag out the hose from the Warn Powerplant up front.
Airlift makes a wireless remote controlled frame mounted compressor unit called the EZ Mount. I got the single path unit, and needed to add their 4Ē spacers since upgrading to the FF. I can now inflate/deflate based on load right from the cab without getting any other gear out, slick!
Iím aware this might limit my rear articulation a bit, but these things are pretty tough, and the rear is already pretty stiff, will have to see. Iím going to cover the compressor with a mud flap to help protect it from the elements, I had to mount it behind the passenger front wheel.

Nice! I added Airlifts to my Express last year after going with a slightly softer leaf setup in the back from Weldtec. I'm using the Daystar cup/cradles for the bottom of the bags and it lets the wheel down travel a lot better than if they were bolted in. I've had it articulated well up off the cups and it always seats back down perfectly.
