Firestone AirBag kits
I've been looking online and it appears that some of the guys who have air bag kits on their trucks have upgraded their air compressors to a continuous duty compressor capable of handling some light air work, like refilling tires, etc.
I know Firestone makes the air bag kit I need for my '11 F250, but what do you recommend as far as a compressor/tank package to run the system?
I do have a small air tank (1 gallon) and a 25% duty Kleinn compressor to pump up and run the air horns. It's hooked into a master toggle switch so I can kill the power to the compressor whenever I want to (and also hooked into a key-switched source). I'm debating whether it would be worthwhile to replace that 25% duty compressor and 1-gallon tank with a system that's capable of running the air bags and the horn all together so I don't have to have two separate systems. There's not a lot of room left under the truck after my air horns and my larger fuel tank.
Any thoughts on this? The compressor I currently have is mounted in the corner of my truck box to keep it away from road grit and grime.
I'd welcome any and all input!
