Hey, I know kermit and LIDP are able to get Firestone ride rights I think. I am looking to buy rear bags with in cab controls in the next week. Possibly organize a group buy? Anyone interested? Sponsors what can ya do for us. :Thumbup:

On edt. I want bags and in cab controls but will be running a much stronger compressor from kermit. Is it possible to get the adjustable parts without the crappy tank and compressor. Kermit I know you didn't much like the idea of in cab stuff. Any ideas. I know my dad won't use them or buy them with out the incab stuff. What do ya'll say??

You can run the incab stuff. But you would have to buy everything piece by piece to not get their tank and compressor.

Is that going to be a train wreck? What are we lookin at for the whole in cab thing. I don't really know everything involved for the incab controls. I have been trying to figure it out.

I thought the only thing you needed for in cab controls was a gauge a switch that only activated while being pushed (not sure the actual name of it) air valve so air could pass through when the button was being pushed. Then you would only need some 1/4" air line and other small mics. fittings that can be picked up at the local Lowes store or something. This is what I am thinking you would need.

Wouldn't something like this drawing work to hook up the incab air???

cant tell all that is involved... but here is the kit. I dunno how this would work because I bet the switch is set right to the crappy compresser. Like HH said, prob. need some type of pressure valve that runs on the switch?? What is that round pieice in the middle?

not sure what round thing you are talking about, everything is labeled except for brown thing and that would just be t valve coming off the air valve w/ one line running to bags and one line running to gauge so that you would know the correct pressure that is on the bags.
