Default Satisfied Customer Email

Here's a picture and an email from a satisfied customer sent to our inventor, Vern Mullican.

Hi Vern –

I got your telephone invitation to meet y’all in Phoenix this weekend – thanks.

I’m working high atop Mt. Alison, overlooking San Jose California for a couple of weeks – so I won’t be able to make it to Phoenix. Damn –

Since the last time we spoke, or corresponded, I have put the rig to a real test. The attached photo shows how it looked the other day on my way out here – 1800 lbs car, the two gang boxes up front on the trailer weighed about 350 lbs each, and I had the bed of the truck completely filled with another 600 lbs or so.

Despite all that load, I ran only about 30 psi to level the rig and provide a silky smooth ride – the system works very well.

After I got here, I off-loaded the car and gang boxes, then proceeded to haul a variety of loads up to the top of this mountain – only 2400 feet or so, but a short, rough, dirt road all the way. The heaviest was thirty 19.5’ sections of 6” transmission line, total 3600 lbs. No issues there either – 30 psi and 4-wheel drive made it all easy.

BTW, I did meet a guy at a gas station in Needles, hauling a GTO back from a show in ‘Vegas, with a butt-sagging Ram 1500 up front – I had him crawling under mine to see the magic – I gave him your name and told him how to reach you – hope you made a sale.

Anyway, I am completely satisfied with my TLC system – thanks again


Chuck

Hey John, I purchased the TLC for my 11 Ram 1500 from you as well. Everything works very well, with the 800lbs 24/7 in the bed my truck was sitting even, now with the click of a button and 10PSI my truck sits like the day it came out of the factory. I can't wait to pull a trailer, I think this is really going to work for any weight application with in reason. The install instructions made it really easy except for me be being anal, the only thing I didn't like was the gauge cluster and I'm not sure what you could do to make it better. I took the gauge cluster apart and mounted everything in dash and am completely happy with your product.
Thanks again,
Stan

Hello John,
Thanks for the PM and heads up on your TLC system. I cant send PMs yet so I thought I'd respond here.
I noticed the compressor kit. Is this manual operation from the the gauge/switch unit or does this have auto leveling capabilities? I guess there's pros and cons to both but it would be nice to set the "stock" level you want and have it auto inflate back to that level when it comes under load.

Default Air Compressor

At the present time, we only offer the manually operated switch.

Since the TLC system operates at low air pressure (5-8 psi unloaded and 15-20 psi loaded), it doesn't require much time to inflate. Our customers seem to enjoy the control that a manual switch affords.

Other systems may require up to 100 psi and much more time to inflate the bags. Other systems also require small amounts of air to prevent the air bags from breaking so the self-level may be a way to address that. TLC air bags cannot break because they are only mounted at one end and therefore free to inflate and deflate.

Thanks for the question. Please stay in touch.

So..if you want, you can completely deflate your bags? The bags I have delt with in the past needed a constant 10lb minimum...then inflated to level was load was on.

Default Deflating TLC Air Bags

Yes, you can deflate the air springs completely and the air springs will not be damaged. However, there may be a clanging noise when driving over rough roads or bumps as the top of the air springs hit where the jounce bumpers were.

That's why we recommend 5-7 psi to inflate the air springs to avoid the noise (and also improve handling).

Our customers always keep air in the air springs for the performance improvement.

Hi John,

Any plans to to offer a more custom guage mount? Perhaps a pillar mount or something in or around the instrument cluster? Although this is a "bolt-on" system, I'd much rather it be seamless in the interior.

JJ
