Air Lift Remote Dual Guage Placement

I am scared to death to cut hole into the cab of my truck but I would really like the convenience of operating my air bags from inside. Anyone of you come up with a good location to mount these guages and switch?

I don't have the bags yet, and I was tired of trying to install the gauge for my compressor, so I put it at the little pocket to the right of my leg. The gauge is easy to read and the switch easily accessed. The wires and air line can be concealed and ran through the firewall with out drilling

I did the wireless system, so no issues here. Much easier, and I'm very happy. Even says if there is a leak and what side.

Long time listener, first time caller

I did what twin200 mentioned and ran the lines through the firewall for my gauge panel. I like being able to make small adjustments from outside the truck, my wife says it's the perfectionist in me I got a wireless system for Christmas (I think it was more for her because she got sick of me asking "IS IT LEVEL HUNNY? HIGHER OR LOWER?") I will say that it is pretty nice not having to yell anymore, atleast not about the truck being level

I did the Firestone bags and the AIR LIFT 72000 Wireless. Works great.

I have the same wireless one just went with Air Lift airbags. Had firestone leak on me before and felt the components were not up to par with Air Lift. Just my opinion though.

I have Firestone bags on my 99 f-350 it has 200k on it and the bags still work great up here in the cold with out having any additives in them.

Guys, after you installed the air bags did you see any change in the ride? I have been considering getting air bags (especially since I already have the air compressor) but I'm not sure if they are going to improve the ride much, which is the only reason I would get them.

I've heard guys say it vastly improves the ride, and others tell me it won't help a bit. So I really don't know what to think.
