bought truck with wireless airbags and no remote

As stated, I bought a truck with wireless airbags and no remote. I did not know it had airbags and was not advertised to have them, but it does and I'm happy about it.

The problem is I called Ride-Rite to get a part number and they said my ECU was older and they don't have remotes for them. What now? What are your suggestions for options to make my airbags work?

Check out the Air Lift WirelessONE system. You can either get the 1st gen or the second gen. I think the 1st gen is discontinued, because I wrecked it and they couldn’t send me a new one on warranty, instead they sent me the 2nd gen for nothing. It has blue tooth you can run in on your phone as well if remote doesn’t work. You just hook it to existing air bag air lines.

I've decided to piece together an analog system since I already have the compressor. I bought a switch with gauge, a relay harness, and the plumbing i need. fingers crossed I did enough research to make this work

Well that work too then! good luck with the project! YouTube will get ya through it, not to worry!
...if you decide the wireless way, it really is f’n cool not having to run hoses and more wires in the cab!

You can purchase a new ECU and corresponding remote. But be warned....it'll set you back a pretty penny. The ECU for the F3 is like $425 and then the remote is $230.

I recently finished working with Firestone on a replacement ECU and remote as mine was being a PITA and erratic at best. Fortunately they covered it under warranty but my teeth about fell out when I saw the replacement prices.

If I could have just bought a remote I would have done that. For me, the gauge with switch is more reliable, I value that over newer technology.

There is definite truth to your reliability statement. I've had both the gauge and switch option (on my old 2004) and now the F3 in my 2017. The gauge/switch worked every time (super reliable). When I bought the 2017, I didn't want to drill and run wires and air lines into the cab so I went the F3 wireless route. I do like the wireless for convenience and ease/cleanliness of install. It works well too but sometime it doesn't respond (remote) very well. I think the response part is partly due to my mounting location.
