Video Transcript for Firestone Air Command II Compressor & Air Tank Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Speaker 1: Today in our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install the Firestone Air Command 2 compressor and air tank, part number F2168.To help us with our installation, we're going to be using the Firestone No-Drill Mount Kit, for the air tank and compressor, part number F2530.So here's where our compressor engage kit looks like, once we have it installed inside of our truck. This is going to allow us to adjust our airbags without ever having to get out. Simply turn the key on. You can hear the compressor kick on, Then we'll be able to fill up each one of our airbags individually.Now the gauge will let us know what our airbags are set at, and since we're able to adust them individually, it'll really help out with those off-center loads. So if it's leaning more to the right, we can set our right airbag up a little bit more, or set the left one down. Whatever we may need.

Even at night, we're gonna be able to keep an eye on our air pressure, because there's gonna have a built in light in the gauge that's gonna illuminate it. So at quick glance, we can see exactly what our airbags are set at.Deflating them is gonna be just as easy. We can push down, and that will let the air out. Our gauge is gonna be able to go from zero all the way up to 150 psi. Just keep in mind, you want to make sure that your airbags can handle that amount of pressure.

Our gauge and switches are gonna come as one unit. We'll have this single face gauge with dual-dials, and two switches, that way we can easily control each side. The left side's gonna be the orange dial, and the right side is gonna be the black needle. The gauge and switches are both gonna mount super easy, anywhere you see fit on the dash, just using a couple of screws.So here's what our compressor and air tank look like in our kit. Now our compressor is gonna be a heavy duty air compressor, and it is gonna put out 150 psi.

Again, double check your airbags, make sure they can handle that amount of pressure.Now what's really unique about this is, is that they're gonna have these rubber bushings directly installed onto the compressor, so however we mount it, if we drill it to the frame, or use a no-drill bracket like we did here, those pushings are gonna take a lot of vibrations out. So we're not gonna have to worry as much about the noise, or any kind of rattling going on when we're going down the road.Now the tank itself is gonna be a half gallon tank. Now with it being a half gallon tank, the flow rate, based on this, is gonna be from zero to 30 psi. It's gonna take seven seconds, and from zero to 60 psi, it will take 18 seconds. So we can quickly adjust our air pressure to suit our needs.Our compressor is gonna have a maximum amperage of 23 amps, and it's gonna have a full, 100 percent duty cycle.

So we know it's gonna have all the power we need to fill up our tank and take care of the pressure we need at our airbags.Our Firestone Air Command kit is gonna work with all Firestone airbags, just keep in mind that those are sold separately.Not only is our compressor kit gonna be nice for our airbags, but it's also gonna provide us a service valve where we can fill things up, as well as a hose. So we can take our hose, put it onto the fitting, we can lock it in place. Now, we can go around, fill up the tires on our truck, or fill up anything else that needs air that's within a close range.So if you do a lot of frequent towing, or hauling, our compressor kit is gonna make it a lot nicer. We're not gonna have to get out, and inflate our airbags in the back of our hitch every time. Which is gonna make it a lot easier if our loads change, or if the trailer changes. Not to mention the fact that if get a low tire, or someone else is around that needs some air, having that service valve is gonna be a really nice option.So now that we've gone over some of the features of our compressor kit and seen what it looks like, let's show you how to get it installed.So we're gonna begin our installation by setting up our compressor, and the other components in our kit. You'll notice we're gonna have these little red caps on our compressor. We're gonna want to put those out. We're gonna have one here, and then one on the back side of the compressor.We're gonna want to grab our T fitting. It'll have a push connector on one end, a female threaded end and a male threaded end. We're gonna threat the male threaded end into the brass fitting coming off the head of the compressor. You're gonna want to make sure we tighten this up so that thread lock inside engages fully, but we don't want to crank on it to where it's gonna cause any problems. So we can grab a half inch wrench. Just make sure that it's nice and snug, and that thread lock is engaging.You also want to make sure that the female threaded section is at least pointing away from the compressor, because we're gonna need to thread something in there, and you don't want to have to fight for limited space.Next, we're gonna grab our pressure switch. It's gonna have a green, plastic cap on the end of it. We can pull that out. We're gonna thread that into the female section of our T fitting. Again, you want to make sure that thread lock gets into the threads. The pressure switch itself, the way we're gonna tighten it up, I'm gonna use an adjustable wrench, but you can use either a 27 millimeter wrench, or an inch and a 16th inch wrench.Again, you don't want to go super tight. You just want to make sure that the thread lock gets in there, so we don't have any leaks.Next, we're gonna grab our air tank, and on each end, we're gonna have these plastic plugs, and it's gonna be threaded inside. So we'll remove both the plugs, and we'll grab the quarter inch push fitting out of our kit, and again it's gonna have a male threaded section, and we'll thread that into the end of the tank, and tighten it up until that thread lock engages. Grab a 9/16ths inch wrench, and snug it up. We'll do that on both ends of our tank.Since we're using the no-drill brackets, we want to go ahead and mount our tank to the bracket itself. So if we flip our tank over, we can see that we're gonna have two holes, mere mounting holes. So we'll grab one of our brackets. We're gonna line up the studs with the holes on our tank. We'll just slide it in place. And we can take the included flange nuts, and we'll get them started by hand, then we can come back with a 9/16ths wrench, and tighten them up.The bracket for our compressor's gonna work a little bit differently. We're gonna have this plate. You'll notice it's gonna have several holes in it. That's because it's gonna fit a lot of different compressors. But the holes on the end, here, line up with the same brackets that we're on our air compressor tank. They'll line up with the studs, and again, we'll take those flange nuts. We'll thread them in place on all four corners. We'll come back with a 9/16ths socket, and snug all of them up.Now we have a sturdy platform to mount our compressor directly up to. Since we're gonna want our bracket to sit as flatly against the frame as possible, we're gonna put the flat side down, and be mounting our compressor on this side. So we're gonna take one of our machine screws, and a flat washer, and coming from the bottom, going up through the top, we'll pass it through the holes that are gonna line up with our compressor. So if we hold it up, we can figure out which holes we need to use, then we can pass through our hardware for each one of those.We can take our compressor now, and we'll slide our hardware through the bushings that are on there. Now we'll take another flat washer, slide it over the screw, then we're gonna loosely install a locking nut to secure everything down. We'll do that for all four corners.So I'm gonna lift my compressor up. I'm gonna hold the screw on the back side with the screwdriver, while I come back with a 10 millimeter socket and snug up the nut. We'll make sure we do that for all four corners.Now if you remember, we have one more threaded hole at the back of our compressor. We're gonna want to find a barbed fitting that's in our kit, and we'll thread that into the back side. You just want to make sure you get that nice and snug, using a 9/16th ratcheting wrench. You can use a socket, or the open end of the wrench, whichever's easiest for you.So now that we have the compressor mounted to their brackets, the way this is gonna work, is we're gonna stand our compressor up, so that it's gonna be flat against the frame, and then we'll take these U-bolts, and we're gonna go around the frame, passing them through the holes, and then we can put the nuts on, and I'll squeeze against the frame and hold everything in place. Our tank's gonna work the same way.So we found that an emergency brake cable, and everything else on the driver's side was really interfering with mounting everything, so we moved over to the passenger side, right by our muffler, here. We're gonna do the same thing, just passing those U-bolts around the frame, and this time we're gonna have a lot of room. We're not gonna have to worry about hitting anything, and we can slide them as needed.So we go ahead and put all three of them around the frame. You just kind of want to watch for any kind of connectors or anything on top of the frame. Make sure you do get all the way around them, the we can move to the outside and hang our tank and compressor. So we'll slide the U-bolts through the brackets on our tank. We'll take those locking nuts and put one on each end. We don't have to worry about the tank falling down. It may still move a little bit, and that's okay, but we don't have to worry about it falling off the frame.Now, for clearance purposes, I'm gonna move the tank as close as I can to this running board mount. That way, I have more room for my compressor right behind it. When you put your compressor up, you want to make sure you keep the wires out from behind the bracket, and just because this is a little bit heavier than the tank, I'm gonna get one side started, make sure those nuts are in place, and then I'll work on getting the other U-bolt through the bracket.Whenever you mount your compressor, you just want to make sure you still have access to all your fittings, and you can route your electrical cables to that pressure switch, which is gonna be on top. Then once we have everything positioned where we want it, we can go ahead and snug up our hardware. Again, this is a 9/16th socket. With these U-bolts, you want to kind of alternate going back and forth, that way you get an even draw on that bracket.Next, we're gonna focus on the barbed fitting on our compressor. We're gonna take the black tubing out of our kit. We're gonna push it directly onto that barbed fitting. You want to make sure you get a good connection. I always like to go up, that way it will be out of the way. So we'll just start by going up over the tank. For now, we'll just bring it back down so we can work with it.On the other end, we're gonna grab the filter. It's also gonna have a plastic barbed fitting on it, so we'll press it directly onto that tubing, make sure we get as much of that line in there as possible.So it's important that our filter is gonna be lower than the compressor, and it's gonna be in a nice, dry spot. So I came forward from the compressor, and we're right by our DEF tank, right by the passenger door on the bottom of our truck. Now, to make it easy for myself, I'm gonna take the filter off, just temporarily. I'm gonna pass my line through that DEF tank guard, here. I'm gonna pull the excess slack out. We'll reattach our filter, then we can actually slid our filter inside the guard here, that way it will keep the moisture out of it, and it'll be at one of the lowest spots on the truck. Then we can take some zip ties, and zip tie our tubing out of the way so it's not hanging down.That tubing went from the fitting in our compressor. We passed it over our air tank, then we took all that excess, made a big loop, and zip tied it to some existing wiring, went over the cab mount, and we actually jumped right into the DEF tank cover, right at the top, passing it down, again zip tying it at that anchor point, and putting our filter inside.Now on our compressor, we're gonna have two different wires: a red wire with a spade terminal on it, and a black wire with a ring terminal. Our black wire's gonna be our ground, so we're gonna go directly into the frame with this. So we're gonna pass it through this hole in the body mount, so we have this nice open area right here. We're gonna want to take a self-tapping screw, and go directly into the frame. But before we take our screw, I'm gonna pre-drill the frame, that way it's a little bit easier to get in place. So you want to use a drill bit that's a little bit smaller than your self-tapping screw.We'll take our self-tapping screw, go through our ring terminal, and secure it down. You want to make sure it's tight enough so that ring terminal isn't gonna move around on you.Now, for our red wire, we're gonna have this plastic cover that's on our pressure switch, and we'll have two terminals on there. We're gonna want to put our spade terminal on one of those, and it's not gonna matter which one we put it on. I'm gonna slide it on and make sure it gets on there, and it's nice and secure.Now we can start making our air line connections. We're gonna have to go from our tank to our compressor to start with. You're gonna want to grab one of the bundles of line from your kit, and it's always a good idea to inspect the end of it, make sure it's a clean, straight cut on there, and if not, you want to make sure you use a tubing cutter so you can have a clean, straight cut. We're gonna do this for every time we cut our air line. See how it's just a nice, clean, straight cut.But we'll take one end, we're gonna go directly into our air tank, and you'll feel it kind of click. It's gonna bottom out. Just because we don't want to get too close to our compressor, I'm gonna go up and kind of curve it going up so it doesn't have an extreme curve, but we're gonna be connecting it into the end of the fitting over here, that's right next to our pressure switch. So we'll route it over our compressor. We'll estimate about how much line we're gonna need. We'll trim it back, and it's gonna go directly into that fitting, again, just kind of push it til it bottoms out. Give it a quick tug, and make sure it's fully seated.Our airbag kid did come with manual inflation valves, that we have mounted right by our hitch, here. Now, if you want to keep these, you're gonna need to put a T in line with each one of our airbags. Now that's what we're gonna do, and we'll show you how to put those Ts in place. But if you're not gonna be keeping the manual inflation valves, you're gonna need to remove all the air lines, as well as the valves back here, and we'll be running new ones, for the bags going to the compressor and the gauge itself.So here's one of the air lines that's going directly into our bag. We'll take our tubing cutter, and we're gonna cut our line. You want to make sure you try to get as much air out of the line as possible, so we don't get a big burst when we cut that line. Then we'll take our T, we're gonna reconnect both sides of our air line to it. Just make sure it bottoms out all the way, and it locks in place. We're gonna do that for the other side airbag as well. So we're gonna take our air line, and we'll plug it directly into that T. We're gonna do that for each side. Now once we have it plugged in, we're gonna route both air lines up towards the front of our cab. Now it's a good idea to go ahead and mark your air line in some way, so you know which one's the left, which one's the right, and we can keep track of everything.So we'll go ahead and route everything up, and we'll show you how we got it there.On the driver's side, here, I started routing my wire towards the front, and I went to the outside of the frame on top. I just followed along the frame, zip tying it to the existing wiring that's already there, until I got up to where the cab is, where I had all my air lines meet. Now on the passenger side, I routed it again, along side the frame, keeping it away from the exhaust as much as possible, and zip tying it to the top of the frame along with this inaudible 00:18:36, following it all the way, going over the compressor, and over our air tank. While we we're here, we also went ahead and connected our other air line to the other push fitting that's in our tank. We routed both the passenger line, and the air tank line, over this support bracket, and through this cross member, all the way to the other side, where it met up with our air line from the left side airbag.Now if we look close to where our air lines are, just right behind the front tire, we're gonna have our emergency brake cable going into the cab at the bottom of this grommet here. We're gonna want to pop that grommet out, so we can use that to also get our air lines through. Now if you can, I'm gonna take a razor knife and we're just gonna cut a slit, coming from the center going out. Gonna give us a little bit of tension relief off of the grommet, the we can take a screwdriver, and we're gonna want to push this into the cab, so that we can take it out. If you can't get the grommet full out, you just want to make sure that hole's gonna be large enough so that we can fit all three air lines through there.When we move to the inside of the cab, that grommet's gonna be in this general spot, just right in front of our driver's seat. So if we come to the threshold here, just kind of grab a piece of it and lift up, there's gonna be some tabs holding it in place. Once we get over here, we're just gonna pry away, and we can pull this panel up, making it a lot easier to get underneath the carpet. Set this panel aside. You can lift up the carpet, here. Kind of just fold it out of the way for now. We'll see our grommet's gonna be right here.So we can either try to pull the entire thing out, or again, just make sure you have a large enough area that you can pass your air lines up through the grommet.So we reach underneath, and we're gonna pass all three air lines through, and once we get them up, we'll pull all the excess slack out, and make sure it didn't get tangled up underneath.With all three of our air lines up top, what I like to do is take a little bit of electrical tape, kind of wrap them together so they stay together, and it's a little more neat. We'll just do it upstream from that grommet a little bit. Get a nice little bundle and tape it together.So with our air line tubes ran, we're gonna need to find a spot that we want to mount our gauges and switches. We're gonna mount ours right to this compartment, so it's an easy, accessible spot, but it's not gonna be in the way of our legs while we're driving. So since this is where we know we're gonna mount it, we're gonna need to get our air line tubes to right about this area here. So we can take our bundle, and we're gonna go underneath the carpet, behind the pedals, and then route it behind this pillar here, so we can have them come out right here.So you want to try to stay underneath the carpet, and out of the way of anything. So we'll just make a big loop, and we're gonna pass our air lines up. Again, just kind of tuck behind everything so they're nice and out of the way. Pull all the excess through, and secure everything with a few zip ties.We're gonna go ahead and pull this compartment out, that way it's a little bit easier to mount the gauge. So if we open it up, we're gonna push in on the sides, which will allow it to drop down, then these are just gonna be press fit in place, so we can just pull down, and they'll side right out.So we'll take our gauge, and we'll set it about where we want it to be on our panel. We'll take a marker, and we're just gonna make a mark on each side, and that'll give us a reference point of where we need to drill. Then we can grab a 3/32nds drill bit, and we're gonna drill right into the plastic. Now we can take one of our machine screws and a flat washer, coming from the back side, we're gonna pass it through until it comes through the front side of our panel. We'll do that for both holes.We'll take our gauge, and we're gonna slide the studs through the slots on the side. We'll take another flat washer and lock nut to secure everything down. You're gonna want to hold the screw on the back side with a Phillips screw driver. Then we can come back with a 10 millimeter socket and tighten it up.Now if we look on the back of our gauge with our switches, we're gonna have two push fittings. Those are gonna be the inlet, then we'll have two barb fittings on each side. Those are gonna be the outlet. So we want to find our left and right air lines that are going directly to the bags, and those are gonna be going on our barbed fittings. So we'll give ourselves a little bit of extra air line. Again, using a tubing cutter, we'll cut one of them, and this one I marked down further, that's gonna be the left side.So keep in mind, though, when you put your panel back, you want to make sure you're putting it on the left side. So if we flip it over, it's actually gonna be this one over here. We'll just take our air line, and we're gonna push it directly onto that barbed fitting, getting as much of that on there as possible. We'll take our other side for the right side, and we'll attach it over to the other barbed fitting as well.Now we should have one more air line. That's gonna be the one coming from the tank. Now we're gonna go ahead and trim this, but we're gonna cut it very far back here, because we're gonna need to install a T, that way we can have our main line coming in, and then we'll split off, going into the each side.We'll hold onto the excess line that we cut off, put our T in, and we can estimate about how much line we'll need. We'll double that. Then we can cut it in half so we have two equal pieces. One air line going to one section of the T, and then you just want to make sure you plug it into both of those push fittings. It doesn't matter which one from the T goes into which push fitting. You just want to make sure that each one of them's plugged in, and that all your connections are locked down.On the back of our gauge, we're gonna have two wires. One's gonna be our ground wire, and one's gonna be power for the light to illuminate the gauge. So we'll start out with our ground wire. We pull the insulation back, off of the wire. We'll go ahead and strip back just a little bit, that way we make sure we have enough. We can take a butt connector, and we're gonna slide our wire in, and we'll crimp it in place. Then you're gonna want to grab the bundle of wire that's in your kit. Find one end. We'll strip it back. We'll put the other end inside the butt connector. We're gonna need to find a good spot that we can attach this, so we have a good ground. So we'll go and route our wire, back the way our air line tubes came, towards the fire wall so we can find a spot to ground it at.With our wire ran over towards the firewall, we're gonna have a stud right here we can use as our ground. So we'll estimate about how much wire we need, and then we can cut it, strip it back, and put our ring terminal in place. We have a 10 millimeter socket, and we're gonna pull that nut off, slide the ring terminal over it. If this stud is just a little bit too big for the ring terminal, what we can do is we can take a pair of cutters, and we're gonna cut our ring terminal into a C shape, that way it can go around the stud, and then we can put our nut back in place.For our power wire, again, we'll take off a little bit of that insulation, strip it back just a little bit. We'll get another butt connector, and crimp it in place. We'll take the excess wire that we have left over, and we'll put it in the other side of the butt connector. Now we're gonna route this along the same path as the air lines and where our ground went, except this wire is gonna go back out the grommet where our air lines came into the truck. So we'll pull back our carpet. We'll pass our wire down through the grommet.You may have to move your air lines a little bit to get it through there, because it is gonna be a little bit of a tight fit. We'll pass it all the way down, and get all that excess wire at the bottom of the truck.So when I dropped my wire down, I pulled back the loom, and cut the tape away from the wiring harness, and I found the wire that's gonna be for our running lights. Now it's gonna be a brownish colored wire, and the way you're gonna test this, is you're gonna take a test light, or circuit tester, and you're gonna check the wire and make sure that you're not getting any power when the lights are off. Like, right now, we're not getting power to either side of our wire, but when we turn the lights on, we'll have power to that wire.So we'll go ahead and cut it in half, and we're gonna strip back both ends. We can bring over our red wire. It's a good idea to give yourself a little bit of extra. We can cut that wire. We'll combine the red wire and one end of our running light wire together. Then we can take a heat shrink butt connector. We'll slide both wires into one end and crimp it down. Make sure it crimped well. Then we can take the other end of our wire and crimp it into the other side of our butt connector. I'm gonna use a heat gun to shrink down my connector. Now you just want to be careful if you are using an open flame, like a torch or a lighter, not to burn the connector or any of the other wires.Now I'm just gonna wrap this bundle back up with some electrical tape to help protect the wires, and then we can always go back and put the loom back on as well.Now we're gonna have one more electrical connection we're gonna need to make, and that's gonna be at the compressor here, on the other spade terminal. So we'll take our length of red wire, and we'll strip back the end of it. We're gonna take this spade terminal that's in our kit, slide it over the end, and we'll crimp it in place. This is gonna go directly onto the other side of the pressure switch. We'll just slide it on the terminal.Now the instructions are gonna inform you, and tell you to put this wire to an ignition source. Typically you can find an ignition source either in that wire loom that we we're working with earlier, or how we're gonna do it is we're gonna find a fuse under the hood that only has power when the ignition is on. Because of how complicated some of the electronics in this truck are, we'd rather use a fuse tap that cut the wire itself. So we're gonna run this along the same route we took our air lines, towards the front, but we're gonna stop close to the firewall.So we routed our wire, taking the same path, except once we got up towards our air line tubes, we're not going into the passenger compartment, we're gonna be going into the engine bay. So we can take our wire, and we're gonna go over this cab mount, and follow the same path as the factory wires, and we're gonna pull all that excess so it goes right over that mount. Now what we an do, is we can actually take a piece of that air line tube that we have left over, and push it up into the engine bay, that way we can pull our wire up to the top. We start routing the wire up, just so we can reach it, once we get underneath the hood.We'll take the free end of our wire, and put it inside the air line tube, and then just take a little bit of electrical tape and secure it, so we don't lose it when we start pulling it to the top of the engine.So our air line tube is right here, right by the back of the firewall. So I'm gonna just reach in, grab it. We want to route it towards the driver side, right there on the edge, because our fuse box is gonna be right there. Pull our wire up until we have all the slack out of it, then we're gonna pull the air line tube off. Now for right now, I'm just gonna wrap the wire around the support, that way it doesn't fall back down underneath the engine.So we can bring our attention to the fuse box, which is gonna be right underneath that support on the drivers side. One of two locking tabs, pull towards the front, can lift up the lid, slide it forward, and then we'll have access to all of our fuses. We're gonna want to go through and we're gonna check each one of our fuses to see if it has power when the ignition is on. Currently, the key is in the on position. So we have a 30 amp fuse that is getting power right now, so we'll go ahead and turn the ignition off, and see if we have power or not.So with the key off, we're gonna check that same fuse. So our truck is gonna have a little bit of a time delay. It's still gonna be receiving power for a few seconds after the ignition's off. But that 30 amp fuse here is gonna be a good power source for our compressor. That fuse is gonna be fuse number 51. We'll get a pair of needle nose pliers. We're gonna pull the fuse out, and you'll notice that this is gonna be a microfuse. It's gonna be a lot smaller than the standard fuse, and even smaller than some of the mini fuses that are out there. We're gonna be using a microfuse tap so that we can get power from this fuse.Now that we've identified the fuse, we need to find out which side is the hot side of the fuse, so that when we use our tap, we're not pulling power from the accessory itself. So you want to take your tester and you're gonna put it into the terminal. So the side closest to the tailgate is gonna be our hot side. We won't have any power on the other side, because the fuse isn't there completing the circuit. So here's what our fuse tap is gonna look like. We're gonna have very small slot, that's where the blade of the fuse is gonna go through, and that top piece is gonna stick out, so we can tap into it. So let's take our fuse, I'll slide the blade into that little slot. It may take a little bit of pressure to get it on there. It's gonna be a tight fit. We may need a pair of pliers to slide it on.So once you get your fuse tap on, this is what it should look like. Now again, you remember the fuse tap needs to go to the hot side of the fuse, so we'll put our fuse back in the slot, making sure that the tap is going towards the back of the truck. Just make sure that it's all the way seated in there. Now that we have our fuse tap in place, we can take our wire. It's always a good idea to leave yourself a little bit of excess, so I don't think we're gonna trim any off of here, but we'll strip back the end of our wire. We're gonna grab a spade terminal, slide it over the end of the wire, and crimp it down. Then we can take it, and I'm gonna pass it through the fuse panel, and I'm gonna plug it directly into the fuse tap. Slide the cover back into the slots on the back side, and I'll see if we have to trim anything, or if we can get it around the wire.It looks like the cover is gonna go back into place without having to squish the wire too much, so we should be okay.We found that the wire underneath the truck was not providing a full 12 volts, so it wasn't lighting up our gauge. So what we did was we ran that wire, the same path we did for our compressor, up to the fuse box, and we're gonna use one of the tail light fuses to power our light. So if we come, we can grab a pair of needle nose pliers. It's gonna be fuse 28 and 29. One's gonna be for the left and one's gonna be for the right. We an use either one. We'll get another one of our fuse taps. Slide it over our fuse. We'll get it in place just like the other one. Make sure the fuse tap goes all the way on there. We're gonna replace the fuse, again with the hot side with the fuse tap on it. Then we can trim our wire, and crimp a new spade terminal on.Before we tidy up all our wires and put all our panels back, it's a good idea to make sure that everything is working. So we can turn our headlights, and you can see that there's a small glow around the gauge. We'll turn our ignition on. We can hear the compressor kicking on. We can see that it's filling up both side airbags.So now with everything working, and we know it's all hooked up properly, we can put all of our panels, carpet, and everything back in place, and we can put a few zip ties to secure everything down where we see needed.We can just take all the excess wire and lines, we're gonna push them back behind the dash here so we can hopefully hide as much as we can.Our kit's gonna come with another inflation valve. Now this is gonna be for a service line, coming from our air tank, so we can fill up either our tires, or another vehicle. So we're gonna find a spot to mount this, and the best spot's gonna be back here on the bumper, close to our license plate light. On the passenger side, we'll have our license plate light, and then the cover for access to our spare tire. We're gonna want to come down, and maybe back towards the front of the truck a little bit, towards the inside of the bumper, but we're gonna be drilling from the inside. So we're gonna come from underneath the bumper, and drill a hole.We just want to go through the plastic. I'm gonna be using a 5/16ths drill bit, and be going through the side just behind and below our license plate light.We can take our inflation valve. We're gonna slide a flat washer over it, and coming from the inside, we'll pass it through, making sure it goes all the way through the hole, we'll place another flat washer over the outside. Finally, we'll put the nut to hold it in place.I'm gonna take a half inch wrench on the nut on the outside, while we're holding the fitting on the inside, and tighten it up. Now you don't need to go super tight on this. You just want to make sure that it's snug enough, and that nut's not gonna back off.Now we're gonna come to the air line that's coming out of our air tank, going up toward our gauge, and we're gonna want to cut this, and install a T, that way the air line will still go to our gauge, but then we can take that other section and run it back toward our valve. Now keep in mind, before you cut this, if you did run your compressor by turning the ignition on, there is gonna be air inside the line, so when you cut it, a lot of air's gonna escape all at once.Place in both sides of our line. Make sure they lock in. I'm gonna grab the rest of our air line tube, put it into our T, and we're gonna route this back to the inflation valve, and zip tie it as needed.Just like all our other fittings, I press in. Make sure it locks into place.That'll finish up your look at the Firestone Air Command 2 compressor and air tank, part number F2168, on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

Had this installed on our GMC dually for maintaining air pressure in the Firestone air bags and having an outside air port for inflating all of our tires and also our Hobie inflatable kayaks. Works very well considering all the demands of the compressor and tank to keep everything inflated. 629477

The compressor kit was fairly easy to install. Finding locations for the compressor and filter was the biggest challenge. I own a 14 Ram 3500. I had Schrader valves in the back bumper initially. It is so much more convenient being able to hit the toggle switch in the cab. Thanks e-trailer. 607609

where is the best place ton install 2158 firestone compressor on 2010 f-150. can it be installed in the cab or should it be mounted outside

-- comment by: Sheldon D - 01/31/2013

It can be installed in the cab, but it can get rather noisy when operating if in the cab. Mounting options are pretty endless, you do want to make sure its not in direct line to have road debris or water thrown on it. I have added a link to an install with a 2011 Sierra to give you some ideas.

I actually installed the compressor inside my console. I also installed the control panel where the factory brake controller would normally go. It is a little noisy but not running it long enough to be worried with that. I also used the factory fuse panel to as the point of power. I would not mind sharing pictures if some one could tell me how.

Installed this kit on a 2015 Nissan Frontier. Biggest issue was finding a space for the compressor. Ended up mounting it behind the left headlight, on an aluminum plate that I mounted above the fender sheet metal. The kit itself is very complete and includes everything required for a clean installation. I did 15 loads of firewood with that truck last year, and it was great to be able to inflate the airbags when loaded, and then reduce the pressure once the truck was unloaded. 364805

I have nothing but great things to say about Etrailer.com! I ordered the Firestone rear helper bags along with the Level Command II for my 2012 Silverado 1500, selected ground shipping and the next day, I was notified that my shipping was upgraded at no charge! I installed it all in my garage in about 3 hours. The only hangup I had was the fuse tap but I got one from my local auto parts store for 6 bucks. I also installed a tee fitting off of the main airline to the bags and installed a manual fill valve inside my rear fender well for back up. I also did not have a tubing cutter but a sharp razor blade does just as well as long as you get your cuts square. I ordered this kit for towing my 29 foot travel trailer. My truck has the stock suspension other than a 2 inch drop shackle in the rear to level the truck out. I am running the minimum amount of pressure, which is 10psi, and the back end is a little stiff but not uncomfortable. 102541

I have a 2015 F150 eco boost 3.5l engine and pull a 28' travel trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Without the air suspension, the trailer is at the upper end of what the truck can handle in wind. The engine is fine, but the truck is light for a big trailer like that. The air suspension stabilizes the truck making for a nice stable pull. I recommend these for anyone pulling a trailer with a light truck. 503426

Great kit, compressor is a little noisy but to be expected given its range and duty cycle. Wireless range isn't that far, but works where you need it. If you're installing in a late model F250/350 buy the no drill mounting kit because you cannot through bolt since the frame rails are fully boxed. Worth the extra $! I use the tank to fill air bags, tires with the included inflation stuff, a spray nozzle to clean out the truck, and a set of quad train horns. It all works fantastically. You can set max/min tank pressure to avoid excessive compressor use, and there's presets for airbag pressure which is nice. Wiring harness is well put together and sealed, was plenty long enough to install on my 176" wheelbase F350 and configured to the upfitter switches. 651169

  • The Firestone air bag kits are the best around and would be what I would recommend for your 2019 Ram 2500 that will be towing a fifth wheel. They are the most reliable and longest lasting.

  • Air Compressor Kit Recommendation for Use with Firestone Ride Rite Kit that Can Inflate Tires

For that we have the Firestone Air Command II part # F2168 which is a compressor kit that has that and would be a great solution. The air line is a coiled design that can expand to 25 feet in length too so it would be long enough as well.

A standard duty compressor is capable of up to 130 psi whereas a heavy duty compressor is capable of up to 150 psi.

  • This particular Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Bag System, part # F2404, will not fit your 2013 Ford F-350 Dually Cab and Chassis according to my contact at Firestone. Instead you can use their kit # F2176 as long as you have at least 7-1/2 inches space between the top of your tire and vehicle. An adjustable air spring kit like the Firestone # F2176 is ideal if you will routinely tow a wide variety of trailers and/or cargo loads of different weights. Please note drilling will be required for...

  • Do Firestone Compressor Kits for Ride Rite Kits Require Air Tanks, Advantage to Air Tanks
  • The Firestone Air Command II # F2178 that you referenced does not require the use of an air tank. Some of the kits come with air tanks that will make inflating the bags quicker, but this kit does no come with an air kit nor does it require one. For a similar kit that does come with an air tank you would want the part # F2168 instead. The bags would inflate much quicker with this kit like I mentioned.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Slide-In Truck Bed Camper
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone regarding the capacity of the F2250 Ride-Rite springs. The capacity of the springs is 4800 lbs, which would be nowhere near sufficient to handle the weight of your slide in camper. I would suggest going with an air spring set-up like the Firestone # F2700. With a 7500 lb capacity, this kit would work great for your application. You might also be interested in a compressor kit, part # F2168 that would allow you to add or remove air pressure from the...

  • Recommended B&W Companion And Air Springs For 2015 Ram 2500 Cummins With Factory Rail Kit
  • The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3600 is what you are looking for. It does not install into the OEM gooseneck but does attach to the OEM pucks in your truck. It is a different design than the companion designed to fit with the B&W gooseneck underbed system. I also recommend getting the wiring harness # PK11893-11932 to add a second 7-way connection to the bed of your truck for easier connection when using a 5th wheel or...

  • Easy to Mount Bracket to Attach Firestone Air Compressor and Tank for Air Bags
  • Sounds like what you are looking for is the Firestone tank and compressor mounting bracket kit part # F2530 which is designed to clamp around the frame of the vehicle and provide an easy attachment point like on your Ford truck that has a boxed frame. This has been confirmed to fit the # F2168 as well. We do not have an install video for this at this time though.

  • Available Firestone Air Bag Compressor Kits
  • Firestone offers both single-path compressors that inflate/deflate both air bags identically and also dual-path compressors that allow independent adjustment of the two bags' pressure levels which is great when you're carrying uneven cargo loads in the bed. They also offer heavy-duty compressors in both single and dual path types. For a heavy-duty dual-path compressor that allows for independent pressure adjustment you can use kit # F2168. The linked article will give you more information...

  • Helper Springs for a Tiffin Motor Home on a 2014 Ford F-53 Chassis
  • The Sumo Springs for the 2014 Ford F-53 chassis only fit the 16K to 22K chassis models but I do have an excellent option for you. Since your chassis is rated for 24K you can use Air Lift air bags, # AL88344, for the rear and # TFFF53B for the front. The front item is not an air bag system, it is a replacement bump stop. There are no air bags for the 24K chassis. The benefit of air bags over fixed rubber springs is that you can adjust the air bags by adding or removing air for the best...
