Decided to test out the new brakes today. Much better. Except I now need a proportioning valve on the rear brakes. Kinda knew I would.

Airbags. I needed to add some airbags since the weight of the tent and all my gear has my springs overloaded and my shackles close to being flattened out. I added 2 extra leafs last spring but still wasn't cutting it.

One of the problems with airbags on a rig like mine is they are not made to travel the amount that the axle will travel. So I came up with a hinge design that makes it so the bag won't be pulled apart when in full droop. The hinge will open up allowing the axle to drop without extending the bag. I have cycled it and so far it seems to work well, in my driveway. Still needs some trail testing. It would be a mess if the hinge fully opened and didn't fold back to its rightful position however it only opens at the most 2 inches (in my driveway) that I've found.

I will be putting the airbags to the test this next weekend finally near moab.

Rear tire swingout/ tailgate finally finished. Will get more pics with tire on it when the paint is finished drying.

That is a work of art. You really spared no expense on the craftsmanship. Functionality meets beauty! I can only hope that my SAS turns out half as nice. Thanks for all the detailed info and pics, really opened my eyes to how much work is involved. I cant wait to start on mine.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the "scissor mount" you crafted now that you've run them for a while. I really want to get rid of some Timbrens in favor of bags but will rip a bag in half. I like your solution!

It's always a work in progress...
