I also added the firestone airbags to my F350. I added the compressor and the single air switch. If I were to do it over again, I'd get the dual air where you can control pressure independently in each bag. This is to eliminate the bags "sharing air." An example would be turning a corner and the truck leaning to the right in the turn. The right airbag would compress and therefore "share air" with the left bag that has less load. The problem only occurs when you use the single air command option. The dual air or no compressor option does not have this issue. I added a big hellwig swaybar and this fixed the occasional excessive lateral roll.

I have the Airlift also on my 2014 F-250, long bed crew cab 4x4 and have zero problems. Was going to get the Firestone but our local truck accessories store had the Airlift in stock. Having looked into both in detail, even talking to people who had either, there isn't a lot of difference in the two. No compressor and I'm running a single inlet for both bags. I think you'd be ok with either.

Put Firestone bags on my F150 with manual fill. Took no time to find that wasn't good and put the Air Lift 72000 wireless control and compressor on. I wouldn't go without an on board compressor again.

You will love it.
I did not do on board compresser. I carry battery powered portable. But find home fill works 90% of time.

Ramrod79, apparently your 12v. compressor gets the job done OK inflating them to 40 psi?

Had Firestones on my '04 Grand Cherokee and installed a set on my '12 Armada. Worked great on both vehicles. Ran about 15psi when not towing and about 35-40psi when towing. Never had a problem.
