I use this system WirelessAIR (Air Lift 72000, al-72000) On Board Air Compressor System | Air Lift Company put I am sure this system would be just as good WirelessONE (Air Lift 25870, al-25870) On Board Air Compressor System | Air Lift Company


I got sick of dragging out a compressor every time I needed to inflate the air bags on the truck, also it maintains a minimum air pressure in the bags so they never go below 5 PSI.

I use a Craftsman hand held compressor that uses the battery packs like the cordless drill, it works awesome for filling bike tires and the air bags on the truck. It will take all day to fill your truck tire but works great for small stuff, I even leave the charger and a spare battery in the trailer. The compressor is inexpensive too!

When you bought the air-bags they didn't show you compressor options?

I ran a hot wire from the battery to the bed and installed a 12V socket. I have a small B&D compressor I carry all the time. Works great.

And that's all? Where did you tap in to the system? Has to be more than a 12V socket.

Are you having any problems with fuse blowing when it is really cold out? I had to use a resettable circuit breaker as the fuse would pop if compressor came on especially this last few weeks. I mounted everything above the spare tire on my F150.

The wireless remote clips to the sunvisor and isn't in the way.

On-the-fly setting changes are easy, since the remote has a pressure gauge.

That's it. I ran a fused 10ga wire from the battery along the wire loom under the truck and into the bed. I bolted a 12v all weather outlet inside the bed and grounded it to the frame. All there is to it. makes it easy to air up the bags and the back tires or what ever else you need 12v for. I never tap a circuit on the truck. I ran a call once where a mechanic was wiring lights on a police car. Tapped the wrong wired and fired the airbags. 6 months later he finally got to take the neck brace off.

Hand pump. I don't need much to level, maybe 15psi.

Funny stuff.(The mechanic) So the system has a fill valve somewhere i assume.
