Air System

I need some input on doing an on board air system. I want to install train horns, rear air bags and have access to air for tires etc... Here’s what I have in mind so far let me know your thoughts or ideas of what you are running.

Train horns - ? Need advice on a good set.

Rear bags - Thinking about the Pac brake, not sure about fitting with my 8” lift.

Air system - 12 gallon tank with duel Viair 444 pumps. I want to build it so that I can + or – air to the rear bags from the cab with a duel air gauge to show bag psi and tank psi. I want to add a quick connection to each side of the truck to use for tires or what not.

I think I can build a nice set up cheaper than if I buy a complete run of the mill system. So any help would be great.

Thanks

Air system

Wow 12 gallons is huge for air horns are you planning on using it for work also?

I know you can buy extensions for air lift 5000's to fit your 8" lift.

As for what air horns are best I thought the Siberian express train horns sounded cool. But I guess that's personal preference. I saw a guy on YouTube running them in a jeep with a viair setup.

I just installed the medium duty on my 04 crew cab. It has a 2.5 gallon tank and the viair 325 there's room for another pump for the future. It fits great on the passenger frame rail right below the rear door.

No not for work just want to have enough and able to fill up my 37" tires if needed.

Do you happen to have a part # for the Siberian horns?

I am also interested in this. I have a set of firestone bags, cab gague controller, and compressor already. I am looking at a train horn and a 10 gallon tank. How are you guys making your hook up for filling up tires and stuff? I want a nice clean professonal look.

Here's my tank and compressor. Right now I just have a coupler on one of the tank ports. I'm routing a line to a regulator I'm installing under my tool box in the near future.

This is what I had in mind for my truck. To have one quick connection on each side of the truck at the center of the steps.

I haven’t yet; it is still in the planning stages. But this is what I want it to look like when finished.

Sweet let me know what you use. I might just drill a new hole and tap it with ntp threads. Also where are going to mount a ten gallon tank? My 2.5 fit with ease. So if you found a DOT approved 10 gallon it might fit there.
