Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
Anyon have info on what is on FB? I don’t use social media.
I bought the KA5066 for my truck and so far I am really happy. Not sure if I would be more happy with the FB one…but curious what the guy is selling all the same.
Btw, I got the ka5066 for $200 ea when I got them.

Maybe some screen shots ? Copy paste pictures? I am more curious than anything.Thanks Doug, will poke around for one of those.
I think this should get you a glimpse of the FB offering without joining FB:
Edit: no it won't. Will try to find a different way in.
Not being terribly successful....
What is his price? They look nice.From their FB post:
I’ve been quietly developing these longer travel, adjustable cab air ride kits over the past couple months and have come up with something that I think is what the FMTVs should have come with from the factory. The first kit that I designed and built has been on a wildland fire truck for almost four years and 12,000 miles before being removed for R&D on these kits. We have gone through multiple full and partial revisions to find components that work very well together while providing a close-to-OEM look. Some of the noteworthy points that set these apart are: they are limited by straps and bump stops that were engineered to provide 65% greater suspension travel than the OEM and provide roughly 23% more overall weight capacity with a protected air spring. Dampening is achieved by means of two, large, ADJUSTABLE Heavy Duty shock absorbers that are mounted to provide maximum tire clearance. These kits are also fully user-rebuildable with commercially available off-the-shelf parts, will come with new Grade 8 hardware, and will be fully-assembled besides reusing the OEM brass NPT/compression fittings and nipples from the OEM air springs. At this point I am gauging interest in producing them. I would be offering them in your choice of tan, green, and black powder coat.
Your mirror anti vibration bracket info was extremely helpful. I made a prototype today and ordered materials and fasteners so I can add that in my kit.He has posted $950 plus shipping.
After thinking about mine, I confirmed that I actually had picked up just one used OE unit to replace the dud in the cab when I bought the truck. Not remembering which one I replaced, I may now end up doing both. I have a feeling it was the other side though, based on the nuts and bolts and their affinity for each other.
I can also confirm that p/n PP997900 should be the correct p/n for just the airbag portion of this assembly. It is commercially available presently, with someone telling me they have them in stock. I have a local lead on a possible replacement unit, and will see what options that may bring. Feb might seem far away, but LOTS to work on between here and there!
