Last few shots showing the location of the Schrader valve mounted to the license plate. Hopefully they will not get bumped here.

More of the "after." Sorry, I forgot to get good before shots.

The picture of the guy in the pigtails with the purple shirt shows the stock height of the truck. That is my brother BTW, a bearing sea fisherman.

Hope this helps someone do the install on their Tundra. It was easy and mounting the Schrader valves to the license plate was a no brainer for me. I do not want to put a hole in your bumper. You only have to widen out the license plate hole enough to fit the Schrader valve.

I think you will be most pleased with the bags. Makes hauling anything heavy a delight

I have them on my tundra. After doing some reading and discussing with the shop that alines my front end I found I need to keep them very low when not caring a load. Without and load I keep them at about 7lbs. Under load I try to keep the truck at its normal height. I made up a stick to check the wheelwell hieght and try to always keep it the same. They are great with a load in the truck. ^0 lbs with the trailer loaded gets me where I need to be for height. Nice looking Job!!

Why not loosen the spring U bolts and remove the bumpers?

I thot that too when installing mine in 2010 but installation manual actually said "cut bumpers off." Must be too much trouble to remove them. And not having a reciprocating saw, I had to use a hack saw. Busted 13 knuckles. Lol.

My AirLift 5000 only adjusts in increments of 5lbs. When empty I run 5lbs. Seems like no bags. Towing 5th wheel at 45-55lbs. Bags make a huge difference.

Good install. The bags were not to complicated. The wireless air controller took a little more time and thot.

Thanks everyone. I did look at taking the U-bolts off to remove the rubber bumper completely but I am glad I did not as this would have added more steps to complete and, frankly, would have been a pain the the ***** (PITA). Plus good old Toyota has gone lean and about everything has a good coating of oxidation and rust so it would have been a pain to remove.

I hope your able to decipher what the pictures are and it helps someone in the install process.

Yes, the wireless does look fairly complicated.

You can clearly see that the rear of the truck is higher than the front. More so-than stock that I unfortunately do not have a good picture of.

This is with around 15 or 20 psi in the bags.
