I reciently purchased a used set of firestone airbags and compressor. I am also purchasing a tank with 5 ports and probably some train horns. I am thinking about mounting the compressor and tank along my frame or on the underside of the bed. Any tips as to where/how to mount them? Any tips on running the air lines and running an air hose to the back bumper so i can air up tires as well? Looking for any tips available please!!

Do not share lines between bags. Each bag should have its own independent line. If the rear two were tied together and you went around the corner, the compressed bag would push its air to the uncompressed bag making the tilting of the truck worsen. You may already know that just wanted to make the catch in the beginning.

Sorry I have no tank location ideas

I actually did not know that. It came with a splice to change the one line to two lines but I definitely plan on running them as two separate lines now that you said that.

did you get the install instructions????? if the tubing is brittle or kinked i suggest you replace them....it should be pretty easy to install, takes about an hour. check the fittings, air lines and bags for leaks prior to install if they were used before. they're really great for towing and heavy loads in your bed....it makes it easy to maintain the proper front axle weight for steering and stopping...and at night(when ur loaded) on coming traffic wont think u have ur brights on....
