Thank you! I used AccuAir brackets and seamless air tanks. I use to be in the air suspension business so I had access to these items.
I still have some aluminum tanks of all sizes left and some mosc pieces so let me know if you are needing something.
This OBA system is the slickest install I’ve ever seen. Very nice work. Are those black brackets and the tank custom? I’ve been looking for a nice aluminum tank for my own project. I found a company called BCFab who makes some nice ones.

Haven’t posted in here in a while. Been busy with making work successful with the new normal like most of us have.

I have few items on order and was really hoping they would arrive in time for a much needed family vacation to Colorado. The only one that came through with awesome customer service and great product was Matt at @BuiltRight.

I'd love to use the same size tank and brackets if you could point me in the right direction. I'd be happy to send money your way if you're looking to part with any excess inventory you're holding :)
I just read that AccuAir went under during the pandemic. Is their stuff still available out there?

Btw, your photos are incredible, especially the shot in front of the old structure.

Stunning photos and beautiful rig. My GF and I want to get out to Colorado very badly. Even more so seeing these photos. Keep 'em coming, and fantastic job with your JT.

Thank you. This was our 5 trip and we love it. We stay around Ouray, Lake City, Silverton, Telluride area.
I was born in Colorado but grew up in Texas so I’m torn.

Got the AAL quick release inner rear fenders finally. Still waiting on the front to arrive.

Also flat towed the YJ this weekend.

What’s the reasoning behind quick release inner fenders?

Nice Islander! I had '91 back in the day. One of my favorites of the bunch. I currently have (3) '88 YJ's that I'm in the process of working on.

Easy way to maintenance everything and access to factory wiring.
I have my on board wiring plug and harness that run right toward the back into the bed so to access that alone is helpful.

Where did you get those brackets that held the rear bumper lights you added? Nice job on the build.
