Welcome aboard Brian!

I have a question for you right off the bat. I have a set of Air-Lift bags in the rear of my Dodge. I have a separate compressor and tank on-board as well. I'm looking for some type of gauge/controller unit so that I can control the pressure in the bags from inside the cab instead of using the two valves mounted at the rear of the truck. I've seen the Air-Lift brand controllers, but haven't been able to find them separate from a whole package with compressor, tank, etc. Can you help me out there?

Thanks,
John.

That shouldn't be too much of a problem at all. First do you know what size air line is on the truck? if its a load helper kit I would probably guess 1/4" also are the valves on it allready electric or manual? Could you post a picture of them as well? I will do my best to help you out with this. Thanks for the interest.

Thanks Brian.

Currently, the lines are 1/4" with the push-lock type fittings on them. There is a Shrader valve at the end of each line, at the rear bumper. It's the "basic installation" as far as I can tell. I just wanted to upgrade a bit to give myself some in-cab adjustability.

I'm concerned though, that having the lines connected at all might allow for increased roll when cornering with a heavy load or trailer. I'm sure that's already been thought of by some means or another.


Thanks for the help!

well you would deffinatly want an independant control for each bag to stop the air transfer. I will look and see what I can come up with for you as far as a basic control panel would be and I allways have the normal electric options as well. Ill try to have an answer for you in the next day or 2 as I have some things in the shop to work on. Btw its brian not brad ya had it right in the first post though lol.

Brian,

Sorry about that, I wasn't paying any attention to what name I was typing I guess.

Ok This is what I think would be you best bet to go with http://www.easystreetair.com/index.a...ROD&ProdID=479 The price would be $128.08 and I can give you free shipping on it. It includes individual switches for each bag and a dual needle gauge to let you know where your at with the pressure. And as a bonus I'll throw in 30ft of 1/4" air line to help you re-route your air system. If this is what you are looking for send me an email to brian@illusivefabrications.com and we can get you squared away with payment. I am showing 4 of those panels in stock as well. Thanks.

Hello Brian. I don't if you still monitor this page.

I am interested in bagging the front and rear of my '96 Ranger. The front is stock, the rear is a '97 t-bird IRS. I have installed a 5.0 with drivetrain. Two wheel drive.

Any suggestions?

Dean Kelly
