firestone air bags - which part number?

looking to order a set of Firestone Air Bags for my

2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4wd, no in bed hitch

don't want the compressor option, don't mind airing up and down as needed with my shop air

Can I install the one meant to work with in bed hitches? Is the installation harder? Don't want to screw myself down the road if I ever want to get an in bed hitch installed.

thanks? Any help with installation of these kits would be great and if you remember which part number you went with. Looks like I can get

2550 - no drill for use with in bed hitch
2484 - no drill with NO in bed hitch

Thumbs up air bags

I used the 2400(ones for bed hitch) they were easy to install. Didnt have to drill any holes. FWIW I have the compressor & dual gauge kit also. That compressor has come in handy to fill tires when low(boat trailer, bicycles etc)

the 2550 is for use with an in bed hitch, no drill too.

Thats the one I am going to order.

I just don't have the funding right now to splurg on the compressor, I figure I can always add that down the road if I feel I really need it and I have the extra money.

Just want to get these installed before winter so I can load her up with the sled deck. No more droppy rear end. Getting sick of people flashing their brights at me when I have two sleds up on the deck and a bed full of gas/gear.

I'm putting airbags on my F-250 in the spring. Going to put the big sway bars on too.

I also really like the idea of the onboard air compressor & dual controls.

ordered the 2550 kit today, got the Y-adapter too

319.57 out the door, no sales tax or shipping charge!!

I already have the jump pack, invertor, compressor all in one tool from northern. I can use that to air up the bags in a bind. It can supply 80 psi of air

I'm midways on my airbag install. Only had them for about 5 years now sitting in the garage. I'm doing the dual control guage set up, one for front bags, the other for rear bags. I mounted a small tank under the vehicle and hope it is large enough for the air horns. Have a larger tank just in case the small one is too small. What is the smallest tank anyone is running with horns?
