Here is picture of the DL1FC kit for Ford E450s from installed on our GTS. I need to put on back on my hubcaps....

I bought a hose extender kit very similar to the picture that tireman9 posted above and never used or installed it. The manufacturer is phoenix usa and the kit number is aml3, i paid about $80 plus shipping. If anyone wants it, I would be happy to sell it for $50. Just google phoenix usa aml3 and make sure it fits your vehicle and let me know.

My Slime 12 volt will do 80 lbs and is rated to 150 lbs, but have not tried that high.

After a tire failure and getting information (thank you Tireman) I followed suit with the extenders and a TPMS system. The cost of 1 month in shop + repairs + tire replacement = $1700. The inner tire failure damaged the wheel well, opening a hole in the sub-floor. The tire failure was extremely violent. IMHO, based on hindsight, I wish I had installed the TPMS system a sooner.
