Short Bed Air Dog Bracket

Recommended Posts

Well I called Airdog today and they do not have a bracket for a '02 short bed Ram:(. I really want to put the Airdog 150 by the transfer case, not in the path of wheel debre from being outside on the frame. Does anyone know where one is or have any specs on one that they use/built? I think if someone wanted to make a few of them there is plenty of people that would buy them.

I saw that someone built a protective case for his AirDog short bed install. I don't think the is room to mount in the usual way on a short bed.

if you find one i would be very interested because my airdog is mounted on the outside of the frame rail at the rear of the cab. I dont really care for the location much either

:drool:Have any spec on that Mopar Man. Need one like this.

That's mine exactly... Then the rest of the pump mounts on top of that... As for specs I guess I could do the dirty thing and pull mine down a sec to shoot pics of it... Geez... How I hate to pull the pump down its always a mess... :rolleyes:

Mike,I think the difference is your AD is mounted across the truck, not the side rail like the long bed... What is it mounted to?

No... I've got just enough room between the AD150 and the transfer case to reach in and pull the plug to check my transfer case fluid. As for driveline nope its out of the way... It's back just enough that I got to pull the rear set of bolts on the skid plate to get the filters off the Airdog. But that's nice because all summer this truck rarely sees pavement...

NO. I can't imagine driving through debris like the picture. I was a bunch braver in my youth. I went trail exploring with a 2 wd GMC p/u... to get the lay of the land for horseback riding... I ran through some moderately deep mud puddle. Concealed under the puddle was a large branch... when I drove onto it, I came up & stove in the driver's door! I pulled the inner panel & popped the worst of it out but a large divot remained. My soon-to-be-ex grumbled about the dent when she got the truck but it didn't matter much as she wrecked it within a year. (No longer my problem!)

Pureflow got back with me today and sent this: We do not have this bracket anymore. Call 573-220-0153. He makes a bracket that works well for the Airdog. ThanksJust to pass it on.

Yes, it is disappointing. These trucks are just reaching their prime... lots of them in use. Dollars & cents...

Maybe we should get smart and grab JL Welding and have him create these bracket for us... :smart: I'm sure he's got the right stuff to do it... :thumb1:

What I did for a bracket was a friend of my Dads had one for a FASS (free:hyper:) and it mount the Airdog between the transfer case and fuel tank, had to drill 2 holes in it and grind gusset a bit. Now what you have to watch for when ordering your hoses is make sure you get all 90 degree fittings at the pump. if you get the "Quick connect" style you will not have enough room to hook fittings up w/ the bracket arangment. Eric at Vulcan Performance is making mine up today. He said he would trade for the ones I already have, just had to pay freight.

Thats why I am here. If I can get the guy I sold mine to come by I will get measurments and cut it out, bolt holes and all in the exact same spot. I can weld them, but may cost more to ship.Yea I dont like the new style but it works ok. Vist me at JL WeldingTx . com:thumb1:Ok run the one you all like by me one more time. I just bought a new AirDog 150 and it came with quick conects and mounts next to the fram rail. Is it that one or the one like in Mikes pics? That is the one I had on my AD 100.

Mikes setup is without the quick connects on the pump. You will need to change your hoses out for another style thats you can use 90 degree at all 3 ports. Call Eric at Vulcan Performance, i had to yesterday for the same reason, he will get you set up with the right stuff, Don't forget to get the splice for the fuel psi gauge.

I have had another issue, while putting the fuel tank back in with the newly installed Drawstraw I, there wasn't enough room between the top of the drawstraw and the bottom of the bed. I had to lower the fuel tank 1/4" to get clearance. i used some styrofoam on top and spacer at the mounts. No big thing just glad i caught it before i broke something.
