Video Transcript for Firestone Dual Electric Air Command Compressor Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Firestone Air Command 2 Standard Duty Compressor, part number F2178. We're gonna be installing that in conjunction with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2430. This is what our control box looks like when it's installed. As you can see, it's gonna have two knobs. This is gonna be your driver's side. This is gonna be your passenger's side.

This is gonna allow you to adjust side to side or both at the same time.As you can see, you're gonna have two different needles. One for your driver's side, and one for your passenger's side. As you can see, this goes up to 150 PSI; however, you don't want to exceed the max PSI on your bags.This is what our compressor looks like when it's installed. This is going to allow you to air up your bags without having to get out of your vehicle, and it simple runs directly off your 12 volt battery.What this system's going to allow you to do, it's going to allow you to level your truck if you have an off-centered load. As you can see, it's got a nice flat finish, so it's gonna fit with the inside of the vehicle.

You can see it's gonna have a white face. Sort of adds a nice touch to the vehicle. It's gonna have a silver colored ring. It's also gonna come with an inside light. If you're loading or unloading at night time, it'll allow you to see your gauge to adjust your pressure.This kit's gonna come with all the necessary hardware.

Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed.First thing we need to do is find a place to mount our compressor. Now, you want to make sure that it's gonna stay out of the way of getting hit with debris or getting a lot of dirt, or mud, or anything like that on it. It can be mounted underneath the vehicle on the frame. On this vehicle, there's not a whole lot of space. So I came underneath the hood here and there's an extra battery pan, which is gonna be a great place to put it.Now, your kit's gonna come with some nuts and bolts for these.

What I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna use self-tapping screws to go into that, the plate there. Once you get one in, you're gonna do the same thing with the remaining three holes.Now, in your kit you're gonna have a wiring harness like that. You're gonna have a red wire, an orange wire, and a white wire. The red wire is gonna run over to our fuse, which is gonna go to your battery. So you want to try and mount this as close to the battery as possible. Your orange wire is gonna route to your compressor, and then your white wire is gonna route inside the vehicle to the gauge.I'm gonna take a self-tapping screw. I'm gonna mount this right here. Gives me plenty of length for my red wire for my battery. Then I'm gonna route my other end along the back here over to my compressor side, and I'll just zip-tie it along this existing wiring.Now we need to find a mounting location for the other end of our wiring harness, and we'll put it right about there. You want to make sure that the plug, you don't mount it upside down. Make sure you mount it like this so that any water or moisture that potentially gets on here will run off of it and not run down into the plug.I'm just gonna take my extra red wire here and bundle it up. I'm gonna zip-tie it to this existing wiring, just to kind of clean it up a little bit.Orange wire connected to our red wire, just like that, and then our black wire is gonna be a ground. If you can't ground it to the battery, you want to make sure you ground it to any metal on the vehicle, metal framing, metal body parts. I'm gonna mount my ground wire right here.So now we need to figure out how we're gonna run our white wire, and then our airline tubes from our bags inside to our switch. So there's a large ground right here on our firewall. You need to make sure, before you poke any holes in it, that you go inside the vehicle and make sure there's not anything on the other side that you're gonna push into.I'm just gonna cut a little slit in it right now, just like this. I'm gonna take some airline tub that I have laying around, and what I did is I cut it into a point like that. Push it in. See if you can't push it through to the other side.I'm gonna take my white wire, gonna take some electrical tape, tape it onto my airline tubing here. It's just gonna make it easier to pull it through. Now I'll come inside and pull, just like that.Next thing we need to do is we need to run our airlines from our bags up to the front of the vehicle and inside to our switch. Now, our customer, even though he has the compressor, he chose to have two valves put in the back, so we added a T-connector, ran a line back to the back to the E-valve. Now we're gonna run our line up to the front. One thing I suggest is marking your lines with two different colors so you know, when you get your line inside, which one's your passenger and which one's your driver's side. When you hook it up to your switch, you gotta hook it up right. I'm gonna mark my driver's side with black, and I'm gonna do it, actually, at both ends. Let me route this driver's side line real quick, and I'll show you how I did it.For my passenger's side, I ran right up here. We're gonna cross this brace. I did zip-tie it here to make sure it stays away from my shock, and I zip-tied it here to make sure I don't have any movement in the line. Ran it right over top of my gas tank and met it with my driver's side line. What I did is I found some existing wiring here on the driver's side, ran it behind both of these brackets, ran it up along, zip-tied it along the existing wiring, all the way up to the front, right inside the front wheel. From here we're gonna follow the same factory wiring up to our engine compartment. Then I'll run my airlines through my grommet to the inside of the vehicle.Now, from our gauge we're gonna have one line that we need to run outside to the compressor, and you can see I did the same thing, only this one I did white. So I'm gonna tape it to my airline tube, my black one that I had run in earlier. We left it in place.We're gonna have another fitting. It's gonna go in our compressor. Again, we'll tighten it down. We want that shorting on the threads to see inside, make sure we don't have any leaks.Go ahead and connect this to the compressor, and it's gonna go in this valve right here. Push it in. Now we're gonna install our air filter. We're gonna use a small piece of hose. It might be a good idea if you soak this in some hot water first, just to soften it up so it'll slide over the ends.So next we need to mount our gauge, and our customer wanted it mounted right here in the center next to his brake control. Now, we're gonna have two black wires coming off our switch. One's gonna be a ground, and one's gonna go to a light source. Go ahead and strip a little bit more off of each of those. Because they're so thin, I'm gonna double them over. I'm gonna put a butt connector on each one, because where we are mounting it, I'm gonna have to extend the wire to get to a good ground. Butt connector on the other one. Then we'll just connect our extension on the other side.Now I'm gonna take one of my wires, strip back the other end, then I'm gonna add a ring terminal for my ground wire.So I'm gonna route my hoses over where I'm gonna be mounting my control. Now that I have my tubes run over, I'm gonna cut them down to size, but before doing that, I want to make sure I mark them again up here so I know what goes where.Next I'm gonna run my white wire around. Now, our white wire's pretty long, so I'm gonna cut it down about the same size as my hoses. About there. Leaves me a little bit of extra, and I'm gonna take this extra white wire and I'm actually gonna have another ground that's coming off of my control unit. So I'm gonna use that to run my other ground wire.So we're gonna have two white wires coming off the back of our control switch. Per our instructions, this bottom one is gonna be our ground. So we'll go ahead and connect our butt connector to it, and we're gonna connect it to the other butt connector on the other side of our white wires.So now our white hose that's going out to our compressor, it's gonna go right in the center, and then my black to my driver's side. Now I'm just gonna use some self-tapping screws to put this in place.What I did is I routed my wires across underneath the dash, and I'm gonna ground . put my two grounds in here, but in order to do that, I have to go through this side, which there's a panel over here in this side. Pop off. There's a hole, and it'll run down right behind this panel here, and our wires will stay hidden and it won't be in the way of my emergency brake pedal.Pop this off like that. So from here, now I have my ground wire, and then my white wire, which is my other ground. There's not an existing bolt here, so I'm gonna cut these right here. I'm actually gonna tie these together and put one ring terminal on for my ground. Then I can ground it right there, like that.Now, our other black wire needs to go to a light source. Now, because our switches in our dash are very low voltage, I'm gonna make it easy. Right underneath the floor there's a grommet. Can you see that grommet there I'm gonna run this outside and run it to the back to my license plate light. So I'm gonna have to extend it. Strip the end and add a butt connector. Same thing with my extra wire. I'm gonna go ahead and run some electrical tape around that. Now we can route our wire back to the back. I'm just gonna follow my airlines here.So our green wire with our yellow strip, that's gonna be for our license plate light. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna split it. We're gonna strip both ends. Put in our butt connector. Gonna strip back our other side, here.So here you can see our lights are working. Now, let's test out our compressor and our bags. And then I'll do it for a look at and installation on the Firestone Air Command 2 Standard Duty Compressor, part number F2178 on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

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

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.

Review from a similar Firestone Air Command II in Air Suspension Compressor Kit


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

Review from a similar Firestone Air Command II in Air Suspension Compressor Kit


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

Review from a similar Firestone Air Command II in Air Suspension Compressor Kit


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

Review from a similar Firestone Air Command II in Air Suspension Compressor Kit


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

  • Rear Suspension Helper Springs for a 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Hello, I will be happy to help you select some helper springs to improve the ride and level out the truck when you are towing. Timbren springs are an easy install but they will make the ride stiffer when you are not towing. The similar SumoSprings Solo # SSR-207-47 will also level out the truck but will not be as stiff when not towing compared to the Timbren springs. Another option to consider is Roadmaster Active Suspension # RAS3611-HD. Installation is easy with this kit as...

  • Since you have a 2 inch lift on your 2015 Toyota 4Runner you will need to do adjust the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs # F4135 to accommodate the 2 extra inches. You can try cutting the bump stops so that they are 2 inches longer than what the installation instructions call for, but that has not been tested so you wouldn't necessarily know what the weight capacity rating would be.

  • What is the Proper Pin Weight Percentage of the Total Weight for a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Definitely false. You want to shoot for the pin weight of a 5th wheel trailer to be about 20% of the loaded weight of the trailer. If the hitch weight of your trailer is 2,000 lbs though that entire pin weight is transferred, not just a portion of the pin weight. This is actually reflected in the weight ratings for 5th wheel trailer hitches (and can usually be found in the owner's manual for your trailer).

Compare that to the maximum 1,000 pound capacity of the Firestone Vehicle Suspension, # F4108.

For an onboard compressor you can use the Firestone Air Command II # F2178, which is a dual function compressor that allows you to inflate each of the springs individually to help level your ride....

  • Rear Helper Spring Recommendations for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • First, Timbren rear helper springs # TDR3500CA will bolt on to the bottoms of the frame on your 2016 Ram 3500 and will not interfere with the factory 5th wheel prep package. The Timbren springs will help with sagging when the truck is loaded/towing and take the strain off of the factory suspension. The ride can be more stiff when the Timbren springs are engaged. For a system that you can adjust to get the ride quality and support to your liking I recommend air bags such as Firestone...

  • 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.

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2010 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
  • Heavier springs are going to create a stiffer ride all the time and not just when there is a load in the truck. Adding Timbren springs to your 2010 Toyota Tacoma will pretty much keep the unloaded ride the same and then offer support and improve the ride when under load. Timbren springs # TTORTUN4L would be the way to go. If you need to level the bed side to side as well because you carry different loads all the time, air bags may work better for you. You could use Firestone Ride-Rite...

  • How to Choose The Right Air Compressor System for Firestone Ride-Rite Airbags
  • There are a few things you will want to look for when choosing a compressor system such as: compressor size, single/dual function, and optional air tank. A standard duty compressor is capable of up to 130 psi whereas a heavy duty compressor is capable of up to 150 psi. The bigger the compressor you have the less work the compressor has to do which in turn creates less stress on the compressor. An underworked compressor will last far longer than an overworked compressor. You will also...

  • For your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie Dual Rear Wheel 4x4 with B&W Gooseneck hitch installed I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Kit # F2299 that you referenced. This rear-axle air bag kit fits your 4WD Ram 3500 with it's B&W gooseneck hitch. This kit offers 5000-lbs of load-leveling capacity and installs without drilling. An install video is linked for you.

  • Is it Necessary to Remove Rear Jounce Bumpers to Install Firestone RideRite Helper Springs # F2445
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs you referenced, part # F2445, fit both 2WD and 4WD versions of the 2012 Toyota Tundra and do require removal of the stock jounce bumpers. These need to be cut off as close as possible to the brackets (on top of the leaf springs). You will also need to temporarily unbolt the fuel relay box (which is shown in your photo) and move this aside during installation of the Firestone springs. The emergency brake line bracket may also need to be bent...

  • Control Panel Wiring for Firestone Dual Electric Air Command Part # F2178
  • I combined the diagram from the instructions and an actual photo of the rear of the switch panel, which will hopefully make things a bit clearer for you. The ground wire from each switch, which would be the wire that connects to the bottom right hand terminal from each switch is combined together and would be grounded. The two wires leading from the other terminals on each switch are combined together and connected to the relay. The illumination for the gauge on the switch panel would...

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Suspension Enhancement for a 1997 Ford F-250
  • Firestone kit # F2071 will fit different trucks including your 1997 Ford F-250. I have confirmed this with Firestone. We tailor the answers based on what truck the customer is asking about so you will see answers for the same kit and different trucks and year ranges because it fits those as well. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you want to be able to add/remove air from the air bags from the comfort of your truck cab I recommend the Level Command II...

  • Will Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Part # F4176 Fit 2014 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Sedan
  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone and they said the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F4176, are a fit for your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Sedan. These have an adjustable air pressure of 5 to 35 psi, and will help level your Jetta when hauling heavy loads. The air bags can be adjusted individually to compensate for uneven loads you may be carrying. To keep from having to manually inflate the air springs when you need them, I recommend the Firestone Dual Electric Air Command,...

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Kit for a 2018 Ford F-150
  • The correct Firestone Ride-Rite air bag kit for your 2018 Ford F-150 is part # F2582. The Ride-Rite kit features double-convoluted design which helps keep them in great shape for a longer period of time when compared to other air bag kits. This kit has a 4,800 lb weight capacity but please note that it will not increase the weight rating of your pickup as it is meant only to support a suspension system that is in good working condition. I also recommend installing a compressor kit so...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement for 2016 Ram 1500
  • For your 2016 Ram 1500, I recommend using the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-307-47. These springs will install in your factory bumpstop location and will only engage to the capacity needed to level your ride. They have progressive load control, so the springs compress easily at first for soft engagement and a less bumpy ride but with heavier loads the springs compress by as much as 80 percent for support. They are maintenance free and won't affect the comfort...

  • Recommended Air Springs for 2005 Toyota Sienna to Reduce Body Roll
  • The Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs # F4155 will help reduce body roll and will improve both steering control and balance on a winding highway whether loaded or unloaded. It will level your headlight beams to give you a clear view of the road. This system also reduces tire wear and assists with braking. Improving the stability and stance of your minivan will help with many aspects of the ride of your vehicle. These springs fit inside your current coil springs to enhance your...

  • Availability of Replacement Control Panel Switch for Firestone Dual Electric Air Command F2178
  • A switch alone is not available for the Firestone Dual Electric Air Command, # F2178, but you can replace the control panel. You would need Dual Function Air Spring Control Panel, # F2260, or, for a black face, # F2188. I have included a link to the installation details for reference.

  • Does an Air Compressor Fill Both Air Bags at the Same Time
  • The compressor is only part of the equation. But to answer the question if it is a single path system such as # F2158 then it will fit both air bags at the same time. If it is a dual-path such as # F2178 then it can adjust the air pressure to each bag individually.

  • Air Bags and Helper Springs for a 2014 Ram 3500 4x4
  • For the rear axle of your 2014 Ram 3500 4x4 the only Firestone Ride-Rite kit available is # F2560. It is rated for up to 5,000 pounds. I also recommend adding an on-board compressor # F2178 so you can add/remove air from the air bags from the comfort of the truck cab. If you want to step outside of the Firestone product circle we have Timbren helper springs # TDR3500CA rated for 8,600 pounds and you will not have to worry about adding or removing air all the time. Just install them and...

  • Recommended Air Bag Suspension Kits for 2001 Ford Excursion
  • The rear axle air bag suspension kit I suggest for your 2001 Ford Excursion 4WD is Firestone kit # F2251. This air bag system will give you up to 5000-lbs of adjustable load support. You can add a compressor kit like the Air Command I # F2158, which controls both bags at the same time, or dual-path Air Command II compressor # F2178 which allows for independent control of each bag's pressure. Since these bags can operate with as little as 5-psi pressure (but never less than that) you...

  • Which is Better Air Bags or AirCell Helper Springs for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually
  • The AirCell helper springs # AL52202 do not have an official listed capacity. But considering that you have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 dually you would be much better off with the air bags because a big truck needs a beefier system. Plus it has more versatility than helper springs like the AirCell. I recommend Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2250 because it is a versatile kit that will work with a 5th wheel/gooseneck hitch if you have one or plan on getting one. I have linked a video showing...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement System For 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • The helper bags are usually installed in place of the jounce bumpers on a vehicle and do not feature the air bags that require inflating. They become more rigid as weight is added to the vehicle and do not affect the ride of the vehicle when no load is added. If you are always carrying the same type load these would be more economical and maybe a better fit for you. An air suspension system is designed to allow you to adjust the amount of air you put in the air bags depending on the...

  • Installing Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Springs # F2525 in 2012 Ford F150 XLT
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Springs # F2525 can be installed using the Union Tee for 1/4" Tubing # F3025-1 if you intend to always have both air bags inflated evenly. This may be desirable if you will be towing only, and not hauling uneven cargo loads. If you do have occasion to haul cargo loads that are not even from side to side, then you may prefer to still be able to inflate the bags individually to allow for compensation for that uneven load. The ultimate convenience...
