I bought this product for my Firestone Air Bags and installed on my F250. The compressor is handy but it does need the frame mounting bracket unless you like drilling lot of hole in frame. The wires are just long enough to run to the battery from under the driver side door. If you put it back further you need more wire.

Install instructions ok, but operating instructions horrible. The 3 pre-sets are set at 5, 20 and 40 psi and are not changeable.

The real problems with this kit are the pressure is not correct and it does not always reach the set pressure before the system times out and stops adjusting. A reading on the screen of 5 psi, is actually 16 psi in air bag providing a horribly stiff ride which my truck skips around turns with no load in bed. I have to manually let out air so air bags are 5 psi because as a safety precaution, the computer will not let you lower the air below 5 psi.

I have contacted Firestone about this issue twice but they will not respond to my email and since this division is in the UK I have no other way to contact them. And just in case this may have been a fluke, my friend has the same system now and it works exactly the same way.

I purchased this item to install on my 2010 Dodge Ram 3500. Assembly and installation was a breeze. No drilling, no cutting, no trips to the hardware store. The wireless remote is great. It shows the pressures in each air bag, allows you to change the pressures 1 at a time, 2 at a time, or 4 at a time. I used this for a 2 corner system , but it is 4 corner ready if you need to upgrade. The valve body is different, but the module and remote and compressor can all be re-used. One reviewer gave this poor reviews stating that the preset levels cannot be changed. This is wrong, it is very easy to set the presets to what ever pressure you want and save it for every day use. Now when I haul my camper, I am not blinding oncoming traffic with my headlights. I am very happy with this purchase and the price was better than other online sellers of this product.

I frequently take my F350 and 10.5' Lance camper on trips varying in altitude by 11,000 feet and 50 degrees temp differences. It is nice to be able to check the bag pressure and adjust if necessary from the cab. Also nice to adjust for pulling the horse trailer. Occasionally use it to level out the truck as well. I have one side that tends to lose a little air now and then. I've reseated the hoses a number of times and it got better, but still need to check it once a week or so to make sure i have the minimum 5 lbs. Again nice to have that capability without pulling out the air pressure gauge.
This unit mounted very nicely inside the bracket under the diesel fillers. Mounting on the bracket was easy - as I just unbolted the bracket, drilled my holes and mounted everything and then bolted the bracket back in. I mounted the compressor and manifold inside the bracket and the controller outside on the front top. I purchased air line tee's so I still have my shrader valves to fill or empty the bags if I need to. I mounted both shader valves inside the fuel filler compartment - keeps them protected and clean.

This is the last time I will buy a product of this kind using Amazon as a third-party provider. The remote control was poorly put together and the circuit board was located in such a way as to preclude the insertion of a battery and the closing of the lid. The ECU does not function properly and as a result, the unit will not raise and lower the air springs, that task must be accompished manually. To compound matters, neither Amazon or Firestone have been helpful in terms of returning/replacing the defective equipment and as a result, I am stuck with a wireless system that doesn't operate and providers who are unwilling or unable to make it right. I reiterate, I will never make another purchase from Amazon of this type of product,
