Could have gone shorter on the air hoses, cleaned things up a bit, but I wanted to make sure I had enough to work with.

Used the included fuse tap to pull power from the converter.

Thanks for the post. My new 17 3011ds won't hold air for 10 minutes on the right side.

That condition will wear out the air pump in short order, better to use soap suds on the fittings to locate the leaks first.

Grinch, we gotta' do this. Great setup Jeep. Any trouble routing the line across to the passenger side and did you need to adapt the fittings? Did you reroute and connect to the existing hose on the pax side or connect the new line to the top of the bag, removing the old line?

Yeah, Buddy! Good questions, Gidyup!
I've got one more outing this year. DW told me to make my "List of things to get done for NEXT year".... THIS is on the top!

Now here is an interesting question. Is there anyway to use this same compressor to fill air in the tires? If so, then it might be worth looking at as then I would not need two compressors. (one dedicated to the air bags and one portable for the tires)

NewRV, the OP can weigh in, but my thoughts are, it takes a pretty beefy 12v compressor to do tires in a timely manner, but yes you could. If you go to a 110v cmprssr to get the volume for tires, you can't do the bag quick adjust at the pump.

They have a system with a 2 gallon tank and an auxiliary air line for tires and toys.

Routing turned out to be a piece of cake. The lines are both routed along the frame rails at that point- once you pull the line out of the passenger side, yank it across to the driver's side. Used a couple zip ties to keep it neat. I used an extra push 't' fitting and simply cut the valve off, cut the driver's line, and pushed them together. If you are careful of the wire loom you'll keep it all wrapped and factory looking pretty easily.
