Video Transcript for Firestone Dual Electric Air Command Compressor Installation - 2015 Ram 2500

Today on our 2015 Ram 2500 we're going to take a look at and, also, show you how to install the Firestone Air Command II Standard Duty Compressor. This dual function compressor offers analog gauges and 130 PSI maximum rating. The part number is F2178. This is what our gauge cluster is going to look like inside the vehicle. As you can see, we're going to have a nice dual dial gauge when our running lights come on that's going to be back lit so we'll be able to see it day or night. The main reason we like the dual analog compressors or the dual style compressors is because each air bag can be controlled individually.

See Each one is going to have a needle so even for off center loads we can really dial this in side to side. If all you're doing is straight line towing or if you've just got like a single connection point, whether it's a fifth wheel, really a single path compressor will work out fine. The dual paths are definitely designed more for the off center loads. It does have 130-pound maximum PSI with the compressor, but the maximum pressure for our bags is a hundred so this is going to make it nice. We can go right up to that pressure and not have to worry about too much. See By pressing down that's going to release the pressure that's in our bag and up will add it.

Now, before we begin our installation, we can take a brief look over our kit. Here you'll see our standard duty compressor. This is what your controls are going to look like. Now, to make our connections wiring-wise we're going to have a pre-made harness. Got a fuse holder here.

This gets connected to the ignition source. This is going to go directly to our battery so it's going to be an easy-to-locate source. We got our relay which is going to protect our switches from overloading. Then there is just two wires to hook up. The white wire is going to go to our switch panel. The orange wire is going to go to our compressor.

Of course, inside the vehicle we're also going to find a light source to get that gauge lit up. We'll have a couple of links of tubing here. That's going to allow us to run from the compressor to our switch panel, then from our switch panel back to each air bag. The compressor is also going to come with a filter. See It's just going to attach through a short piece of airline there and a couple of replacement elements for it if you need them down the road. To attach the compressor to our vehicle, we're going to be using the Firestone Compressor Bracket Kit. This is part number F2497. As you can see, it's going to be pre-drilled. Raised U-bolts around our frame if we ever wanted to make any modifications to the frame of the truck. Here on the passenger side frame rail is where we're going to be mounting our compressor in place, again, we're going to be using our bracket. We're basically directly below the rear door handle here. There are two little tabs that stick out. We've got one here and one here. Our mounting bracket won't quite fit between them. If we try to place it over it, you can see there is a little bit of wiggle. What we're going to do is just take this down about an eighth of an inch so when we put our plate up there we don't have any movement out of it. Now, once we've confirmed we got in place here and we're not going to have any of that tipping, it's a good idea to spray that with some corrosion preventative, whether it's a spray paint or an undercoat just so you don't have any rusting. Now to mount our compressor to our bracket, we're going to take the screws provided. See Our mounts there and the compressor are going to line up with the holes so this is for your bolt through the back. The compressor is going to go down and on. Then we're going to have one of the provided flat washers and nylon locking nuts. Now, we're going to do that at all four mounting locations. Now, I'm mounting with the screw head towards the back because we do have limited clearance here. If you're mounting to your frame, it's probably going to be better to do it the opposite way. Now you'll see the line that's running right down through here. We want to insure that our U-bolts go in behind that. We don't want to pinch any wiring or anything like that. You see how they just kind of rotate over the frame, just like that. Now we just lift our compressor up. Guide it over our U-bolts and we're going to attach it with lock nuts that are provided with the kit. Those are the same size nuts we use to attach this bracket to that cross plate. Now we're going to start tightening these down. All right. That's nice and secure. Now, we can torque those down. All right. Now, we start getting some of our connections made. This is going to be our ground wire. We're going to use this to ground out the compressor. We can go somewhere up here on the frame. We haven't really bolted this to the vehicle. There is contact here between the bracket and frame, but I don't trust that ground so you want to use another source here. If you're not using this bracket and you drill through your frame with these bolts, you can definitely mount it behind that bolt there. Then we'll place our ring terminal over the hole and then fasten down our self-tapping screw. Now, it's going to be time to get our relay mounted. Now, see that tab on the top You can use that to mount to any location that you want. We're going to be going just up here on the frame. We're going to use a self-tapping screw similar to the one we used for our ground. Once we've got that hole drilled out, we'll just get our relay secured in position there. I'll pull my plug down off my relay there and what I'll do is I'm just going to start taping this up really well down here where these wires are underneath the truck. We don't want them getting hung up on anything or let too much moisture get around them. I'm just going to use a zip tie and redirect the wiring. Our orange one is going to be connected to the red one right here at the compressor. The red one, this one needs to run forward up to the battery, and our white one is going to follow our airlines around and go up into the cab of the truck so we'll just plan on that as we get our connections made. Now the end of our orange wire is going to have the spade connector on it. That will plug directly into the compressor just like that and then you could kind of bundle up this excess wire, but something I prefer to do is use a butt connector in this situation. Where going to use part number DW05744. This is a heat shrink butt connector. It'll allow us to trim our compressor wire, trim the relay wire. I'll leave a little bit of extra, but not too much. Then we can actually connect these, shorten it up, and make it look a lot nicer over here. All right. Now you're going to use a heat source, whether you want to use a heat gun, a mini torch or like a lighter. We just want to start heating up the end of that connector. It's going to start to shrink down. You don't want to overheat it or discolor it. Just a little bit of heat at a time, but eventually that wire is going to magnify. It looks like it gets bigger and there is some clear gel that comes out of the end there. At that point, you're done. Now we're going to start running the power wire up towards our battery. We, of course, want to keep this up and out of the way, a safe area away from heat sources or any sharp edges or anything like that. We're going to go up above the frame rail most of the way. Now, anywhere we can along the way we want to get our line secured just to help keep it up in a good, safe area. We use our provided zip ties and, of course, trim them off. Now, the positive terminals of our battery are going to be right here. This is the area we'll want to bring our fuse holder up to. All right. We'll want to bring up any of the slack that we have in that line and once it's said and done you want to anchor that off. We could bring it right up to there. Anchor that off and then we won't have to worry about any slack going down below the vehicle and getting hung up. All right. Now, before we make our connection, we want to remove the fuse out of the holder. I'm just going to lift out on this tab. You'll see that 25 amp fuse there. I'm just going to pull that out and set it aside. That's going to be the last thing we'll actually put back in place. We'll do that right before we test the system. Now the short side there we're going to strip off. We'll use a three-eighths diameter ring terminal there. Crimp that down and the 10 millimeter socket. We can remove that nut. I like to place it under anything already existing so I'll put that there; that there then we'll replace that nut. All right and the rest of the wire we've got we'll secure that after we put our fuse in. The cover has got a small tab there so we can get everything secured up and out of the way. Now, on our compressor we'll pull out the red cap in the end and we want to thread in the push to connect fitting so we'll tighten that down so we get plenty of the thread sealant down inside the compressor side there. Now, we're going to start running some air lines from the rear of the vehicle here up to the passenger compartment. All three air lines are going to look identical. We've got one coming from the driver's side airbag, one coming from the passenger and then, of course, one from our compressor. You're going to need to mark a couple of these we're going to put one line on one. We're going to put lines on the other. We're going to do that at both ends so when we eventually get them where they're going we're going to know which one is which. Now, just behind where we've mounted the compressor we're going to have the body mount here at the back of the cab. Now, we'll run those right over that hump staying in that tube. That's going to keep them up and away from any of the moving objects. It'll keep them protected. Now, the white wire we need to get to the switch panel. That's heading the same way as those so we're going to bring it down through the oblong hole in the top and before we get that airlines pulled all the way through we can tape this off to it, and it'll help us pull it through there. Now, we can just continue to feed them through. Just like where we pulled it out over on that side there is going to be an oblong hole by this body mount and that's the one I'm going to use to get this airline to the rear of vehicle here. It's going to be the one that has the single mark so that's going to be for our right side airbag and the one without a mark we can run that to our compressor. We're going to use our tubing cutter here. We'll cut off just the very end there. We'll leave a little bit of slack here. This is part number F9009. It's going to give us a really nice, flush cut. That just has to be slid into the compressor. You'll feel it stop and you should be able to press it in further just like that. Now, since we had the compressor mounted over on that passenger side, we're using up a lot of air line to cross over and when it's all said and done we're really not going to have enough to make it to both air bags so we're going to use an additional 18-foot length. This is part number F0938. It's the exact, same airline that came with the kit, but this is going to give us enough length to get up to the cab and back to this, the double mark we're going to use for the driver's side bag. We want to bring it up and over so it'll come out kind of the same direction that our other two lines do. We'll join those together. Zip them off and continue forward with it. Now, right above this hump here you're going to find that main wire loop that runs up towards the cab of the truck. It's a really good idea to run along with that since it's going the same direction we are. Now, if we come just in front of where the transfer case, this is our front driveshaft. Right here we're going to have a small plug in the floorboard of the truck. We're going to run our airlines right through that. Let's go up to the top. We'll pull up that carpet and find out right where it's at. All right. Now, that grommet should be located kind of in the middle of the floorboard area here. We're going to pull up the scuff panel here using a trim panel tool. That way we can get underneath there and figure out exactly where it's at, and bring our airline up and through. We'll have three here clips that we'll pull straight up and then we need to just kind of rotate it out and backward then we can pull back that little piece of weather stripping there on the side. We should be able to get to the ones located here. We'll just pull up and straight back. Now, you'll notice right here once you've lifted up the carpet there is going to be a larger round circle right here in the middle with a little dimple in the middle of it. That's the plug that we're going to be taking out. A little bit of sound-deadening material here on the floor so you just want to trim around that to release it. This is just going to pop out. It's that undercoating material that you kind of got to trim through, that sound-deadening material. Now, I'm going to use this step-style drill bit here and I'm going to enlarge this hole so we can pass our three airline tubing pieces and our wire through. We're going to enlarge that hole so it's just inside of our clips. We still want our clips to be there. We're going to put this back in place and we can bring our tubing and wire right up through it. Run it along our floorboard and up to our gauges. Now, the only place you have any issues as you pass this airline through is going to be where this wiring connector passes through. This is going to be replaced anyway with a butt connector so I'm going to trim that off. Tape it back to that airline. We should be able to draw that through without any problem. Now, we'll bring our tubing up through. We'll grab it from the topside and then just gently start pulling it until we have it all up into the passenger area. As we're passing that through, our grommet kind of came off there so we just want to slide it down and reposition it in the floorboard. Once we've got everything wired up, we're going to seal this area up with some black silicone so we won't have to worry about any dirt or moisture coming in the car. Now we can pull kind of backwards on our carpet and down, and we'll be able to loop this right up and around. We're going to be able to secure that off and we'll have all the hoses right up here where we need them to connect and you'll see our switch panel wire made it about that far. We're going to have to extend it slightly to get it to the right position. Now it's time to get our gauge panel put into place. We want to find an area on our dashboard where this is going to be out of the way but, also, somewhere where it's going to be accessible so we can get to our levers. We're going to go in this general area with it. There is nothing really in here behind the dash that we have to be worried about so our fasteners can go through right there. All right. Once we find the position we want it, we're going mark our dashboard. I like to a dry erase marker. That way we can always wipe it off. Now the gauge cluster has some adjustability in and out there so you want to get your holes pretty close in the same spot. I'm going to do this on both sides. We're going to remove the two Philips screws. There is one here and one here. That's going to allow us to pull this panel out slightly. That'll get us in there so we can get our hands in here and get all of our hardware started. You're going to place the provided hardware through with one of the washers. Then on the backside we're going to put on another washer and, also, one of the nylon locknuts. You'll need a three-eighths wrench on the backside to hold that in place while you tighten it down. If you need to, you can pull this panel out all the way as we've done. I'm going to just pop that panel back in position. Then the two screws we've pulled out down here. We'll replace those. All right. Now we're going to separate all of our wires and hoses, and we can start making some connections. We've got a parking brake cable located right back here. This is what we use to zip tie our airlines off to. That's going to create a fixed anchor point here for us. As we talked about, we're going to need to extend that white wire so we can get it taken care of now. I'm just going to strip the end of that back and we're going to extend it with some white wire that we had just laying around the shop. The color doesn't matter so much as diameter you want them to be similar. That wire needs to get connected to the lead that's closest to the middle on our left-hand switch so that's going to be this one. Trim that off to the appropriate length. Strip it and crimp it into that butt connector. This is a heat shrink butt connector so we can use the same approach that we did underneath the vehicle. The other wire or the one that if we're looking at the left switch again, the one that comes off the left side, this is going to go to ground. Now, on our light it doesn't matter which one we send to ground or which one we send to the dashboard illumination circuit so we'll choose one and trim that off. I'm going to get it stripped back. We're also going to strip off that extra white wire that we had. You will need to provide some. There is a little short piece in the kit, but it's not really enough to get you where you need to go. I'm going to twist those two together and we'll add them into that other butt connector there. That way we'll be grounding out our switches and our light at the same point. This was the one going to the illumination circuit. We'll take care of that in a few minutes. We're going to be tidying all of this up, but we're going to do it with our airlines, too, so let's start on those now. However you decided to mark or keep track of these, you want to use the one that's coming from the compressor. That's going to go to the tee, the two that are tied together. That's going to be basically our supply line. If this won't slide on for you easily, you could soak it in some hot water. It'll soften that plastic up a little bit and might make it a little bit easier for you. That will just plug in just like that. The left switch that's going to be for our left bag. The right switch for it here that's going to be for the right bag. You just want to choose the right air hose, whichever one you had marked for those and get those connected as well. Our illumination circuit we'll need to extend that out slightly. Again, we're just using some extra wire we had here in the shop of similar size. I ran out of the zip ties provided with the kit so at this point, I'm just going to be using some extras we had here. If you don't want the appearance of all the airlines that are running out of the back here and the wiring, you can use some electrical tape to tidy them up a bit. It's a little tough to do. I would recommend maybe if you wanted it completely covered up and not visible that you do them each separately before you install it. The illumination circuit we need to light up our gauge typically is right behind our switch here. We should be able to find a wire there. We're going to pull out on the bottom side of this panel. It's got some clips that'll release. You'll see that we've got five clips there that release then you rotate it. It's going to pull straight out on it. If you look coming right off the back of that switch, we're going to have wires that run out of it. Here we got six of them there. Typically, it's one of the orange ones that gives us the signal so we're going to use a test light to find it. What we're looking for is just like that. See When we turn the lights on that comes on. As soon as we turn them off, that goes off. In our situation here that's going to be an orange wire with a tan stripe. On the side of that switch closest to the middle of the vehicle there is going to be that tab. You can press that tab. That's going to release our plug. The brown wire, which we tied into that illumination circuit wire over and they have provided a quick connector for you in the kit. We're going to use a splice method. It seems to kind of protect your vehicle wiring a little bit more. So we're going to splice that. Strip each side back. We can also trim off our ground wire and get it spliced back. Then we'll bring our brown wire out and just like we did underneath the dashboard let's twist these two together. Then we can take our plug side right into our butt connector and that connection will be made. That can be plugged right back into the back of our switch. Panel put back on and we'll be in good shape, just like we took it off. Kind of slide it in and then just rotate it. Just above our parking brake pedal here, there is a little bumper there so when it comes up it hits that. If we look right above that, there is going to be a stud that sticks out of the side of the vehicle and we want to loosen that up using a 13 millimeter socket and get that removed and that's going to be the stud we're going to place our ground behind. What we have to do is put it in behind this nut and that'll give us a great location. Our wire should be ran up and out of the way of this little arm. Right here is going to move so we're want to have plenty of clearance for that. I'm going to add on another ring terminal just like the one we used for our battery. Place that on the stud and then we turn the nut. Of course, once that's in position, we want to tighten our nut back down. We can test our connections just by turning on the running lights. You'll see that's going to illuminate there so we'll know that that connection is fine. That should mean that our other connections are fine as well. Once we've got everything in position, this is when we're going to take our silicon and really apply plenty around this plug. Eliminate any of the elements from getting in our vehicle. We're going to slide our cover back in here. You just want to align the tabs. You might have to pull out on this rubber slightly. Just clip them in place. You're going to have options here as far as what you want to do to get yeah our air compressor lines into the air bag. You can remove the existing line from the top of the air bag and simply place this one in or what we prefer to do is get a couple of extra tees and we'll cut this line. Slide our tee into place. That way not only will we be able to air up our air bags from the compressor but, also, in an emergency we still have the Schroeder valves in the back. We'll just zip tie that right back there where we had it before. Then we can head on over to the driver's side and do the same thing over there. The last step we've got to do is put on our filter here then we'll be ready to put in that fuse and test out the system. Slide it up on there as far as you can. Again, just like before. A little bit of hot water can help you out with that. We're going to be mounting that up there as high as we can reach to keep it up out of the way of any road spray or dirt or dust, anything like that. We're just going to use a zip tie to connect it. You want it to be oriented so it's not going to bounce up against anything or cause any noise. Once we've got that anchored properly, we're going to put a loop in it and then go right to the compressor. With that cut off to length, that'll go right in the stud on the end of the compressor there. All right. We'll slide that fuse in. Put the cap on and secure it up with a couple of zip ties. To test out the compressor we'll simply press our levers up. You'll hear the compressor kick on. We're going to see our gauge moving. As you can see, they fill up rather quickly. That's 10 and that's going to be 20 PSI. The compressor does a really nice job of getting them up to pressure without taking too much time. Now that we know our compressor is working fine, we want to check all of our connections by spraying them down with soapy water. We'll take it up to about 30 PSI as we have here. Let it sit for 15 or 20 minutes with that soapy water on it checking periodically to make sure no new bubbles form. As long as they don't, you're ready to hook up to your trailer or load up the back of your truck, and you can hit the road. That will complete our installation of the Firestone Air Command II Air Compressor System, part number F2178 on our 2015 Ram 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.

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

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

The unit I purchased works awesome, makes adjustments very easy and very quick. Easy install, the thing I didn't like is because of the air lines coming into the cab of the truck to the controller it is very noisy, but other than that all is good! 694752

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

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

Do you have a question about this Air Suspension Compressor Kit?


  • 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...

  • 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). If you check out the popular B&W Companion # BWRVK3500 you can see that the...

  • 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.

  • 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 2015 F-250 with a diesel engine the Ride-Rite system designed to fit your truck is part # F2597. Part # F2550 is designed for gasoline engines. The difference is the brackets used to install the Ride-Rite system on the frame of the truck. Both of these system will work with a gooseneck hitch system installed on the truck.

Adding an on-board compressor system is an excellent idea any time air bags are used on a vehicle.

  • 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.
