If I was you. And I had the money. This would be the set up. 2 chrome 12 gallon tanks. 8 1/2 inch parker valves. 1/2" lines. Eai Gauges. York engine driven compressor. Oasis on 2 batts with 24 volts and a street charger. and at least 3 ways of clicking them switches (10 switch box with extentions, 4 panel switches( with extentions), ps2 controler.

Ops. Forgot the water traps and check valves every where you could think off
hehe :cool: ;) :cool:

if you dont have a/c then theres space on the engine for a york (engine driving compresser) i belive dan makes brackets to bolt up the your to a sbc. if not, impalacracker and someone else knows where to get another style for older engines w/o the acessory bolt holes in the heads.

also i would go with more than 8 gallons, i like to run a minumum of 10 gallons. parker and SMC make great valves, i never heard or had a single problem with SMC.

for bags, go with slam specialties, they dont ballon out like the rest of the others do. for the rear, if you plan on doing a 4-link, put the bags on the lower bars and do a triangulated 4 link. all bars forward like it should be, none of this unsafe/gay reverse shit some people pull off.

as far as mainanince, you will need a coalescing filter to get the oil/water out of the air, and you will need to check the oil level on teh compresser every week or 2. only other thing is drain the water out of the tanks once in a while (shouldnt really be much with the filter)

if your used to hydros, i dont think you need gauges, you quickly get a feel for your height.

if you want an even quicker response, use 5/8" airline. its 1/2" ID which is the same size as the orofice in most 1/2" valves. keep 90s to a minimum and put the valves for the front bags close to the bag as possible, not right on the bag, but within a few feet.

There are all types of air managment systems that are available. They mainly come down to personal preferences, or budgets. As far as the suspension components are concerned, I'd go with the KP Components front kit and their cantilever 4 link rear. Gives you 12 inches of travel in the back, and throws killer sides with an even better ride.
Check out their website www.kpcomponents.com for more information

Now that's a clean looking C10. We designed and developed our kit off a truck that same color and even did a traditional body drop on it to lay rocker. Those trucks look so tough when you BD them, or even just Z the front clip to lay rocker.
Nice Ride.

Here's my personal ride in metal finish from the Classic Trucks Magazine cover shoot.

Yes that was a project truck built between myself, Clint Petree (SIC) and Bob Grant from Grant Fab. the rims aren't the ones we plan on running, but for the magazine shoot they went with the theme. Looks like something raw that came out of the earth that way. Sleek, low, smooth and flawless.
Thanks for all the compliments guys.
