The Air Command F3 air control system from Firestone lets you monitor and adjust your vehicle's air springs from inside or outside of your cab. The wireless remote controls a dual-path system that gives you the ability to level your vehicle front to back and side to side. And the easy-to-read digital gauge on the remote offers real-time air pressure readings so that you can monitor the springs.


Dual-Path Compressor System

The Air Command F3 is a dual-path system. This means you can put the same amount of air in both springs or you can adjust the two air springs independently of each other. So aside from leveling your vehicle front to back, you can also level it side to side by putting a different amount of air into each spring. This allows you to even out an off-center load.


The light-duty, 12-volt air compressor is great for occasional towing and light loads.


Wireless Remote with Digital Gauge

Firestone Ride-Rite wireless remote with digital gauge

The wireless remote allows you to either adjust your air springs from the comfort of your cab or stand outside and watch your vehicle as you level it. The user-friendly remote gives you complete control of the air springs, making it easy to fine-tune the springs based on your load. Simply select which air springs you want to adjust: left, right, or both. And then use the plus and minus buttons to increase or decrease the air pressure of the selected springs. Hit the enter button and the springs will inflate or deflate.


The M1 and M2 buttons are used to set and activate memory presets. The presets let you quickly switch back and forth between previously established air pressure settings, which can be a major timesaver. For example, if you frequently tow the same trailer, you can use a memory button to store the correct air pressure settings for that trailer. Then use the other memory button to store the air pressure settings needed when you're not towing.


A digital gauge with LED display is built into the remote. The gauge provides real-time air pressure readings so you can monitor the springs and make precise adjustments to them.


The gauge also displays error codes when a problem occurs with the system so that you know when you need to do some troubleshooting.


Firestone wireless remote with digital gauge

The wireless remote can be mounted to your dashboard with the included sleeve and Velcro patches. The remote uses (2) CR2032 coin cell batteries (included). And the energy-efficient LED display has a pre-programmed sleep cycle that further reduces energy use, thereby lengthening battery life.


Installation

The system comes with the air compressor, single-piece electronic control unit (ECU) and valve block, wiring harness, fuse tap, air line, and hardware. The installation of the air compressor and ECU can be simplified with a no-drill mount kit (sold separately).


The ECU and valve block are a single unit that can be mounted anywhere. The unit's durable housing stands up to moisture, road chemicals, salt spray, and extreme temperatures. Air lines and wiring are plugged into the same side of the ECU for ease of installation.


The air compressor has a direct-drive motor, which means that it doesn't require oil or belts, so it can be mounted in any position.

Excellent unit, easy install, except the hardware kit comes with bolts and nut which are fine on a C rail frame. With my frame being a boxed tube frame I chose to use stainless steel self drilling screws, and I also took extra time to run my wire harness thru the frame rail to, less wire ties that and protected better. Also has a convenient hand held remote with dual control and memory settings Yes I would recommend this product. Before and after pics of where installed 660298


Comments
Good, lov it, inflate and deflate at the push of button. The only problem is sometimes it takes for ever for the remote to connect to the controllercompressor. I also installed an indicator light on my pillar gauge pod to know when it is running.

The Firestone Air Command Wireless remote is exactly what I needed to lift my truck when pulling my heavy trailer. The First unit I got the remote wouldn't connect to the ECU Module. E trailer talked to Firestone and I had another new complete system shipped to me in 2 days. The Remote instructions need to be more detailed. If you want to raise or lower the vehicle, after you make the setting for the bags press the enter button twice to activate the system. This was trial and error for me to figure it out. THANKS to E TRAILER for the fast assistance in helping me resolve the problem of the first system. I would Recommend BUYING THE NO DRILL BRACKET. I did and it worked like a dream. Thank you Sherry R and Katie D, two great employees call ask ask for them when ordering any products 322116

So far so good. This is a pretty complex install especially with ‘19 and ‘20 power systems. It’s not as simple as “hooking to the battery”. 716907

I like the convenience of being able to air up the bags from inside the cab. My only issue is the bags after sitting for awhile, the air compressor comes on and airs the bags up. I cannot find a leak anywhere in the tubing. I am assuming there is a leak in the bags. Less than a year old, and I am not sure what to do about it. 599665


Comments
The most common spot for a small air leak to occur is at the point where the air lines enter the fittings on the springs. If the air lines are not cut perfectly square they will leak every time, which is why I recommend using a tubing cutter like # AL10530
Air Lift Air Hose Cutter
$31.04
. You can check this by spraying a soapy water solution 3 tablespoons liquid dish detergent per quart of water on the connection. If you see any bubbles forming, theres a leak.

Excellent product... very easy to install and work perfectly. I installed it an year ago and I will highly recommend it. 756173

The air springs do help but the two stars is because the remote causes nothing but headaches. We've used these for about a year on our 2012 F250 Crewcab FX4 to help pull our 2018 Jayco Eagle RETS338 which when loaded is about 14,000#. There is a significant improvement using the air bags with our weight distribution hitch (Equalizer 14k), bags only need about 40 psi to level everything out. There are two things I can count on every time I want to pressurize/drain the bags and that is frustration and subpar assistance from Firestone. The power is connected properly and when it works, it works well. The problem is the remote only connects about once every 40-50 attempts. I've spoken with Firestone support and they sent me a new remote...but it's not much better. I have since routed the ACC conductor to my uplifter switch so I can "kill" power to the ECM anytime and "restart" the unit in an attempt to get the remote to connect a little more reliably...it's helped a bit, but not much. For the price of their air springs and compressor system with remote you'd think it would work every-time all-the-time...but not even close. If I could do it all over again I sure wouldn't have bought this kit because it has been nothing but a pain in the neck and completely unreliable. 674306

Allow room for Air Line Tubes to connect to the air fittings on the ECU. Allow room for the 14-pin ECU connector to connect to the ECU. Allow room for the Air Line Tube to run without sharp curves or bends. Using supplied fasteners shown in Step 3 is recommended. If no other mounting option...

  • Recommended Mounting Location of Firestone Command F3 Compressor System # F2581
    When using the No-Drill Mount Kit # F2588 to mount the compressor and electronic control unit (ECU) of the Firestone Air Command F3 Compressor System # F2581, you will simply select a location that is solid and secure on the body/frame of your Silverado 3500, trying to avoid areas that are not protected from debris and moisture. You should only need to snorkel the air inlet filter if the compressor will be mounted to an exposed, wet location. Otherwise the air filter will attach directly...

  • Why Does the Red Wire on the Air Command F3 Need to Be Run to the Battery
    The red 12 volt power wire on the Air Command F3 Compressor System w/ Wireless Remote part # F2581 will indeed need to be attached to the positive terminal on your vehicle's battery. I cannot recommend you use any other location as there is no guarantee it would provide enough power for the unit to operate correctly. In regards to the yellow 12 volt ignition wire, this will tell the system when the vehicle is on so the air compressor can run therefore is also a requirement. Unfortunately,...

There are 4 push to connect air fittings on the ECU with the following labels; EXH, AS-1, AS-2, and SUP. The SUP fitting is ran to the compressor to supply the unit with air.

  • What is Firestone Fuse Tap F2526 Used For
    The fuse tap in question for Firestone air bag kits such as # F2581 is # F2526 and it comes with fuses already so you would not have to use your own. The included fuses are a 10 amp, 20 amp, and 30 amp. The fuse tap is used to easily get power to the air bag system by tapping into the fuse panel rather than hardwiring to a 12 volt circuit. It isn't required but does make installation a little easier. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation.

    Since the Air Command F3 Compressor System w/ Wireless Remote and Light Duty Compressor # F2581 is a dual path compressor kit you can run one of the paths to the air bag kit of the truck and the other to an air tank. For a 1 gallon air tank you could use the part # F9244.

However, I have attached an install video of this kit for you which you can then use to gauge how long you think it will take but aside from this I do not have any other information in regards to install time. I will however say that the wireless systems do take a bit more time to set up.
