In cab controls for bags

I am going to buy firestone ride rites but instead of there compressor and tank I wanna run kermits tank and compressor. So if I buy the package without the controls, what other parts will I need for the in cab adjustable part? Thanks guys.

Excuse the interruption, but is this in replacement of leaf springs, like an air ride on a bigger truck, or as a supplement to the leaf springs?

More than likely a supplement Duke. I have not seen a "full replacement" from FireStone.:shrug:


HHrecovery........can we see your set-up? I'm thinking about the same thing. :

Bags are just for help, not completely replace.

Here are some pics of my setup. The tank and compressor is underneath the passenger seat on the frame and my horns are mounted above my rear driveshaft pointed towards the rear of the truck (only place I could get train horns to fit under there. I ran my air line for my compressor up into the engine compartment to keep it out of the weather. I have a Viair 450c which is a sealed compressor but you have to have the air pickup in a clean/dry area. I also ran an air line to the back of the truck and have a airline hookup at the rear of my truck so that I can use it to air up tires, tuves, etc... I mounted my air gauge and on/off switch for my compressor in the glove box. I also have a DPDT switch so that I can use my factory horn button for both horns. I think I have a diagram how everything is wired at work I believe and I can get it on Tuesday.

Thats a sweet system. Basicly what I'm looking for, But i have room on the flatbed for the tank, and was going to put a 50' hose/reel next to it for airing and the such. So can you tell me what I need for the in cab controls besides the bag set up. And did you buy it from firestone, because thats exactly what i'm looking for. Adjustable, with a better tank and compressor

I have kinda been workin on this with kermit some, but he can't seem to find what I need from firestone to run the in cab without buying the compressor and there tank and such.

On edit, I see you aren't running bags, just the compresser and the gauge is for tank PSI. Anyone else have any ideas?

All of my stuff is viair brand, I will have to look and see where i got everything though. I searched for a long time to get the cheapest price on everything. Someone makes a single gauge w/ two needles so that you can read two different things with one gauge, (what i want when I get bags). That way I can have one needle show my tank pressure and the other needle to show me my bag pressure.I have to look to find out who makes this gauge again though.
