OBA is as handy as a pocket on a shirt. Although I went the cheap way with the extreme viair double compressor set up...I'm still happy with it. (it built my entire new shed using the air nailer's)

I tied the compressor intake line into the clean air from the engine intake.

The OBA is 99% done. The only thing left is to tie the ARB lines into it.

I installed 2 quick couplers in the system, one on each side under the dash. I will be able to air 2 tires at a time. As well as air down 2 tires at a time, keeping the pressure equal in each tire.


I put a ball valve in an old manifold I had. To air down, I connect the 2 air lines to 2 tires, and open the valve. I can sit in the cab, and monitor the pressure from there.

Hydro assist is still in my future, so today i installed a transmission cooler. It was a simple install, I ran the low pressure line from the box to the cooler, then a line from the cooler back to the pump. I mounted it in front of the radiator. Hopefully this will help the steering during slow speed crawling.

I picked up some stickers for my switches.

Today I tied the lockers into the OBA system. No more loud ARB compressor when wheeling. I'm keeping the ARB compressor in place, as a back-up. I wired in a compressor override switch, and added a ball valve. This way I can isolate the original ARB system when needed.

You have been busy. That gauge looks real clean. I will be interested to see how you do the ram assist. That is quite a ways away on my list, but eventually it will be at the top.

Thanks, I'm very happy with it. I have no idea where I'll mount the low pressure gauge for the tires. I lowered my system pressure to 105 for now. If everything runs good at that pressure I'll leave it there, and maybe get a gauge that reads 0-110. I don't have any good ideas where to mount a "second" one.

I'm interested as well, but it is not at the top of my list either. Hopefully the cooler I installed helps the whine when I'm wheeling. If not, it will move to the top quite fast!

I actually got them at EJS last year. I forgot about them, and just came across them. I'm not too excited on how they turned out. I'll be taking the switch actuators off and will be replacing them with different ones. Let me know if you are interested in the actuators and/or the unused leftovers I have. I'll get a photo of whats left, if you're interested.

Today I purchased the AtoZ sport cage add-on.

I was going to build my own, but after doing a ton of research on cages I realized I would have almost that much in metal alone. Then after I figured in my time, the good looks of the design, and the ease of install, I'd be better off with the AtoZ. I'll add to the cage in the future for added strength.

Any input you may have is much appreciated!

Man that AtoZ add on is nice. Did you do front and rear? Windshield V? Like I told you, if I had it to do over again I would have done something like that...weld in.

If you need a hand let me know. Fitting that cage without maring entire dash area can be tough

I only ordered the front, no windshield V. In the rear I'm going to add custom crossbars and spreaders to accommodate my frameless top. I'm also planning on B pillar supports of some kind for added strength.

I might take you up on the offer to help. Thanks!

Glad you finally decided on a direction and pulled the trigger! Stoked to see this come together... as cage is definitely on my mind a lot right now as well. I would have done something this winter... if I didn't already have so much to do!
