Towing bags!

I have a buddy with a 02 f250 long bed with a 4" lift. He wants air bags for his 12000 lb fifth wheel. We want to know how easy it is to install bags with compressor and control in the cab. Help us me out guys. You are all very knowledgable. Thanks.

Installation isn't that hard, but check if what brakets you'll need with the lift.

AirLift sells brackets for lifted trucks. Installation of the bags isn't difficult. The compressor isn't bad either, but it depends on how much you want to spend. If you want easy installation, go for the wireless compressor that costs more. If you want to save money, go for the standard compressor that takes more time to install.

The wireless compressor is the way to go!!! We install plenty of bag systems similar to this both wired and wireless. Wireless is a breeze to install.
