I've had these a while and finally got them installed. I decided to invest in a compressor for them too. Here are a few pics:

Very nice! My dad has a set of bags on his truck. It's got a magnet to detect the ride height from the rear axle and then it automatically adds or lets out air. I'd love to have a set on my truck. They really help the truck handle loads a lot easier.

Those look great. How do you like them? Them being in the rear strut is a really good idea.

Thank you all! The wireless controller option is pretty slick. I towed my trailer to a friends house and loaded his GF's Caliber (hey, it HAD to be a Mopar! ) and inflated the bags until the truck looked level at 60 psi. I didn't have time for a drive to feel if there was a difference in the ride. Here are a few more pics:

Load with minimum psi (5 psi default):


With 60 psi:



Driver's side bag with 60 psi:



Passenger's side bag with 60 psi



I know the Caliber isn't a real load but at least I was able to see that it would level out. The real test will obviously be with more weight and a decent driving distance.

I am really considering this, so I will be anxious to see how they work on the road for you.
