Thanks!
Its a Fatman Fabrication Stage 4 kit. My builder did a lot of modifying to it though. The design is outdated and their customer service is horrible. Not to mention the left out a bunch of parts that were supposed to be included and hassled me when I called them out on it.
Its a 5 or 6qt oil pan. Its the only pan that will clear the crossmember as is. both the IFS and Transmission crossmember hang lower than the pan, but not by much.

your builder pays attention to the details. is the 4 link a kit or home made?

Thanks guys!
The fat man setup has little to know instructions with it and is not really tailored to the truck. It is just a modular system they have in which they cut the crossmember to fit a specific frame width. In my opinion it would be much better as a whole system that fits together. Additionally they sent me the wrong lower control arms, no brake pads, no caliber brackets, and missing a couple other misc hardware. There were also some fitment issues. To install it the way they intended i would have had to raise the engine and transmission 3.5 inches as well as possibly tunnel the cab. Instead my builder notched and reinforced the front frame. this kept the same suspension geometry but dropped everything down a few inches. Making it uneccesary to raise the engine. Also the caliper brackets rubbed on the spindles and some of the spacers they sent were not the right size.
Thanks god my builder is really good at what he does and figured it all out.
Also the 4-link is from ride tech.

thanks for the detailed information. people need to know what their skill level needs to be at before they purchase that system

Stopped by the shop today to see all the air stuff getting mounted and the frame being boxed. I'm really liking how its all looking.

Thanks!

It is called a 5 gallon tank but I believe the true capacity is actually less. Its pretty cool is seamless and made from spun aluminum.

The air suspension on my truck got all hooked up and is functional. It just needs some brake work, wiring, and a little engine work and it will be back on the road. Hopefully by next week.
