    I wont have my truck in front of me for a few more days- but trying to plan the rout for some stainless steel braided airline from the engine bay (where arb compressor is mounted) to the rear cubby box (drivers side) where I have installed an air coupler to plug in to.

    Is there an obvious rout to follow along the frame that I can secure the air line to with zip ties?

    Trying to avoid too many hours outside unprepared given the 10 degree temps...

    Thanks in advance!

    Just follow the frame rail and try to avoid the headers and cat heat shield. Zipties are fine.

    That's how I did all the wiring for my chase bar, fridge, water pump, etc.

    Thats awesome man, thank you for that. Did you follow an existing set of wires or something to zip tie too? I seriously could be making this more complicated than needed...I just know when I get out there in my Carhart moon suit Im only gonna have a limited time before I start freezing my ass off LOL

    The hard brake lines go down the driver side rail and run all the way to the back axle, They have mounting tabs every so often, and that's what I wrapped a ziptie around to secure the wiring.

    I am not sure about the pax side, but I imagine there is plenty of stuff to wrap a ziptie to underneath. Like your driveshaft :rofl:

    How did this turn out and what air hose did you use?

    It’s been incredible. I just bought the braided Air Systems hose that ARB makes but you could also make up a hose with an actual air hose and get the ends crimped on to length. I just like the stainless braided protection so I never have to worry about it!
