Hi - great job on your truck- beautiful
Regarding tapping your air system,
Here is what I think :
I believe that you already have at least one air tap , possibly two,
But you may have not found them yet.( I could be all wet...)
I'd suggest looking in and around your air tanks, and all of the piping between your tanks and the regulators. The taps have a rubber cap, and they can blend in pretty well.
I have photos of a U5023 that I spent time with ( cannot post photos
At the moment ) , and the air taps are right on the rear air tanks. Pull, the cap, put the factory aux. air hose
On it (BW surplus), and air up your tires, etc.
I will post photos when I can.
Also , you can tap the system at the
Tanks, and if you have 'Glad Hands'
For trailering, you can use a trailer side fitting on the Red glad hand and tap the air, without taking anything apart. ( you just put the trailer side piece on the end of your hose and plug it into the Glad Hand-
For temporary use.)
There is a thread on here somewhere that shows a variety of air taps that owners have installed.
Still, I'll bet you a beer that you already have at least one, just waiting to be found. I would not
Take anything apart until I had done a good look .
