Airlift 5000 install and new tint for the front

Airbag install went ok total time of 2 hours for me. Only issue I had was there is nothing in the instructions about the vent tube outlet on the axles passenger side. There is maybe a 1/4 inch of clearance between it and the lower bracket. Be careful placing that assembly in as I didn't notice that I was on the far side of the vent tube and bent it trying to line everything up. Noticed it, corrected my placement and everything else went smoothly. FYI spraying your trucks underside before is a good idea. I got covered in dirt and mud clumps from our recent desert trip. Here are a few pictures.

Did come with a small compressor or are you manually adjusting your air pressure with an external hose.

There really isn't a good reason to mess with the on board compressor (unless you get a high quality one with a external tank & are going to use it alot). If the bags need to be filled up then so are the rear tires, just do everything all at the same time.

I have the S Trim and it came with the Transforce firestones I believe. They are run at 75psi so no need to air up my tires. I put the inflation valves to the right of my rear license plate and the tow plug. The onboard compressors are cool but not $500 cool. I'll carry a separate compressor I can run off of my generator.
