Got the Iron Air Kit installed! I took pictures on my cell phone but it does not want to connect to the computer now. I will have to take some with my camera. It will be better quality anyway.

My friend (not mechanically inclined) wants to sell his truck. I might buy it from him. 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9. D44 front, D60 Rear. I am thinking about buying it, and doing the required work to get it driveable, and then putting airbags in the rear and eventually towing the Jeep with it!
