I bent mine. Works now with no bend in the extension or pressure of the wire on the simulator. Good job!

Sage, I was thinking about putting them on the simulator also, but thought they may scratch them. What do you think?

Ben, I took another look at your photo. I bent mine the other way as there wasn't enough spring your way. Have you tried it? I wouldn't mount it to the simulator as I don't think there is enough clearance. They may have videos at Pacific Dually.com about mounting these.
Mine are fine now, tight and extended with no bend or hitting the simulator.

Doesn't interfere with the simulator at all now. These new extensions from Pacific Dualie are a lot better that the air-flex. Glad I changed them anyway.
Awesome idea, I think I will do that to mine as well, was hard to find any brackets that allows for aftermarket aluminum rims

Have you ever heard of cats eyes tire pressure monitoring system? Easy to check tire pressure, and only one fill valve to add air at. They work great and ends the argument one generally has with the inside tire valve.

Are you referring to those extenders for dullies which are like equalizers? Fill both tires at same time? Unless they make it airless extenders than it will work. But other than that, if you get one tire leaking air, basically the other goes flat too.

I believe the 18101 is for the E-350 and has the spring stabilizers for the 2" ovals. Not sure about the length. The Pacific Dualy site wanted $30 for them, I got them at Amazon for around $22 both are plus shipping.
I will look in to getting a set as soon as I get mine back. Right now my 3011 is at the dealer. Last trip out the A/C kept freezing up and was blowing chunks of ice. They replaced the unit yesterday as it was losing freon. I have had a problem since day one putting air in the right inside dual and they are supposed to address that as well as replace a frig fan that has a bearing noise. Would like to get everything done before we head up to BamaGanza. Ooops sorry, i did not mean to hijack the thread

I use extenders by Wheel Master 8208 as that way I don't have to mess with lug nut torque if/when I get involved with TPMS issues.

What ever you use be sure the outer end if firmly tired down.


I use pop rivets with the small angle brackets provided in the kit.

But then I had a non flexible inner extension that may have been the problem. My local tire dealer can easily install this by just breaking the bead and swapping out valves then rebalance. Probably about $25 a tire. Still that's about $100 for just the those installed.
The bottom photo shows what I had to do on the E-350. Notice the trimming. But the E-450 does have the bigger 4" holes instead of the 2".

This type of extender is OK as long as you remember to hold the valve body when you press on it to add air or check inflation. The force needed may eventually cause damage to the rubber grommet.
