Yeah don't go cheap cuz it will bite you in the rear big time.

Bagged my truck before the dealer delivered it. The only problem I had was a bad pressure gauge that leaked on one side. Cost me nothing to replace since it was under a 1 year warranty but I'm hoping I can swap out the manual in-cab dual needle gauge and valves to the Air Lift WirelessAIR wireless remote control unit this summer.

Man I started reading MT back in 95, I believe thats the 1st year you were editor?

Yea, if anyone knows about air ride, this is the guy!
