The Lone Ranger – Rear Bumper Air Tank

The rear bumper isn’t anything special, Just some ¼” wall 4×5 that Is capped off to be an air tank in the future (If I remember my measurements right, its about a 4 gallon tank size) .

I took the center section to work and milled a hole for the receiver mount. After that was completed, I burned on the end caps and receiver:

And burned on the truck:

At this point I started playing with the side tubes some. The first try was a bit too long for my taste:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

So I shortened everything up a bit more:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

That’ll work, so everything got burned on and had some spray on bed liner applied:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

(The side tube is level and square, I don’t know what up with this photo, body lines maybe?)

Now I just need to plumb the air (and get an air source), and add the license plate. For what it’s worth, it does measure the correct height for IL 625.
