On board air

Who has it and what do you recommend. I have rear air bags Firestone ride rites and I want in cab adjustment plus a tank to do tire pressures. What's the best setup?

I'm getting ready to do this as well and like the Firestone Air Command II. I'd be interested in what others have to say as well...

I would recommend a 5 gallon air tank and a viair 450(150psi) or a viair 380(200psi). Where ever you get the tank and compressor from will probably have the manual valves and gauges too.

I have it, I use the compressor I have for my train horns that I got from hornblasters routed to a 12gal tank in my tool box. I rigged it up with a couple of shut off valves and a quick disconnect for airing up tires. Plus with 12 gals of air I can let my horns SING!!!
