Exactly! If you want to do it yourself, it's a pretty easy list of things to do. You'll need this Stainless Hydraulic Flex Line, a 10mm line wrench, regular 10,12,13, 14, and 17mm wrenches, a small container of fresh DOT 3 brake fluid, and about 40 minutes of your time plus 5-10 minutes with a buddy to bleed the clutch once everything is installed.
Is accumulator easy to get to? I just ordered the line that you linked from Amazon

Yeah it's not bad. Having the truck on stands would help, but I did mine without. It's not hidden under stock skids either. Just one little cover then you're away. Don't forget to clamp the fluid line at the reservoir so you don't leak a ton of fluid.

Is the fluid line rubber, under the hood?

New Mod! Genesis Offroad Dual Battery Setup

I don’t know if I’m smart starting with a bunch of foundational things, but hey... it’s going to happen at some point anyway, right?

Installation was dead simple. The steps included taking the old battery out, drilling a few holes, installing some rivetnuts, then dropping the new system in. Of course there was a little bit more measurement involved and some grunting (batteries are heavy), but on a scale from 1-10, I’d probably give this a 2 or a 3 For difficulty.

Functionally, I’ve had it in there for about 2 weeks now. I haven’t notices any change in ride quality (it’s only like 50 pounds heavier in the front now) but I have had a whole lot of peace of mind. I’m going to go crazy with the blue sea systems here in a bit to make sure I have that sweet sweet 12V available all over the truck to be gobbled down by future goodies.

Here’s what the process looked like.

Old mod... New update? ARB TWIN Onboard Air

Ok... You guys all know what these are.. I just wanted to post a picture of it!

As far as locations for it and accessories. I want to hear some of the cool things you guys have seen or done with your air. Have you routed connection points all over the truck? Anyone done hardline? Built in spud launchers?

Got some of that tuck over the weekend. Seeing this, I don't think a 35 would fit well... So I'mma do it.

Going to get some nicer pictures soon. Installed a prinsu rack and put my ski rack up. Also learned how to fully disable traction control (hate that crap) You could say I'm ready for all the snow now.

Aaannnndddd.... Let there be light. Heretic 40"

They're local to me so I went up to their shop, met the team, saw how they make stuff, and learned about their technology. Really solid group with great products!

Maybe going a little crazy... I'm bad at posting things here, but really good at spending all of my money on this silly truck haha

New: Fender trimming, Icon UCAs, 35x12.5 R17, SCS f5s, pinch weld beat down, bumper trimming, dual switch pro setup inside and out (not quite done yet), clutch reservoir relocation, and I'm sure a bunch more. Still waiting on accutune to get all the shocks in. Full suspension overhaul in near future.
