    Well i'm looking for some input on the ride rite air bags. I've got a 96 F250 i need them for the front-it doesn't ride that great with the plow. Is it worth getting the on board compressor? How hard is it to fill them up without the onboard compressor? How do you monitor the pressure when you fill or deflate them? For the most part i've heard good things about them. But any help would be great. If anyone has a truck simular to mine with the air bags in pic's would be helpful. thanks

    most of the ones i have seen and installed get the onboard compressor. there will be a set of gauges that comes with it and you just flip a button and air them up or down. so much simpler that way.

    I took some off my bosses 06 f350 before he sold it. He had the cheaper kit where you use an external air compressor in your shop to fill them. He had to hoses with air hookups on the rear by the trailer electrical hookup. Just air them up to the same psi and your good to go.
