Air Bags feed back

I installed a set on the Firestone ride rites on the rear of my 202 F350 KR, took it out this weekend with the 14k fifth wheel in tow and all I can say is I am well pleased. The shudder on takeoff is all gone, it was a good investment, I am running 22# of air in them.

How much did yours run you? I'm looking at $705 for the full kit with in cab compressor controls from a local shop without install

I haven't added bags yet, but I have a 5 gallon tank and viair 380c compressor to power my Nathan k3la's.. And I have an air hose ran too. I'll be adding the bags soon and upgrading to an Oasis Compressor- you can run an impact wrench off that compressor but its $1500 but badass. Here's a few pics of my set up. Did it in a weekend.





It's good if you have an 8' bed, I have my low profile toolbox in front of it.

That price was without install. It's the handheld controls with compressor and all for trucks with an in bed hitch

I assume your referring to the wireless controller set up? I wish that I spent the extra money and did the wireless control I had a hard time finding a place to mount the switch and gage double stick tape didnt hold in the heat here is some pics

Looks good! And yes I believe it is the wireless setup. I'm having trouble figuring out part numbers. Is $705 a decent price for the entire setup without install?
