Default Airbags installed

I got my Airlift airbags installed today. I was able to use a friends lift which made it pretty easy. I stole mineralram's idea of putting the airline in wiring loom and mounting the valve on the hitch(Thanks mineralram). It's going to be a week or two before I pull my camper, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it handles.

The air jack is a good spot. So how do they work when you need air? Like a manual fill? Always wondered...:-)

Either way let us know how it handles, would be a mod I am interested in..

Yea rescue its a manual fill. A lot of guys hitch their loa up then fill the bags till the truck is siting level again getting rid of most of the squat from heady towing loads


Install looks great, I must have missed the original thread cuz that looks like an aweome place to hide your fill location

It was mentioned to me for extra stability we should have separate fill ability for the lt and rt bags when towing. I have mine Tee'd together now, but plan to isolate the two before I tow. This will stop the air from bleeding to the opposite side when cornering under load.

Cheers!

When I had them on a work truck I had a compressor in the truck that could run air tools out the ports you used in the back but they are great for towing. Being able to adjust them on the fly it gives you great control and they can be run off of little compressors you don't need a big one like I had. Independent control is important and allows you to keep our truck level for the whole ride. Just wondering what size trailer are you towing and why did you go with the spring bags v/s the replacement bags
