My ram 3500 sagged a good bit with 3300 on the pin so I installed timbrens. Easy and works well.

Has anyone used a portable Air Tank to fill their Air Bags?

Such as this…

5 gal. Portable Air Tank

I just purchased a set of Air Lift 5000 Ultimates for my F250, I am going to skip adding the 4" Blocks… for now.

I drive a F250 with bags and you will not need an on-board compressor. I check mine every time I do a tire check and they hold their pressure months.

My bags have held 12 lbs. of pressure all winter. I'm impressed!

The bags take a very small volume of air to inflate. I just use a Sears Craftsmen 19.2V C3 Cordless Inflator (Tried to post link but it is being blocked.

Uses the same 19.2V batteries as my cordless drill for jacks and impact wrench for lugnuts, sawzall for overhanging branches and wet & Dry dustbuster vacuum for the camper.

I ran the airlines back to back bumper and they replace the rear license plate screws. I really like the bags both loaded and levelled and unloaded when you don't notice them there.

They take vary little air, so yes a portable air tank will do. I have done it several times.

Thanks everyone for the feedback, I'm hoping to install them this Sunday.

My Air Lift kit was deliverd yesterday, opened the box tonight to start the Bag assembly and found out I only have 3 Roll Plates, need 4 as they are the end caps for the Air Bags. The Kit looked like it was boxed by a kid, I am not impressed so far.

Needless to say I am not happy as tomorrow was about the only day I had to install them before picking up our camper in 3 weeks.

What are the pros and cons with Timbrens vs Air Bags? Cost wise, Timbrens seems to be a cheaper solution.

I use a manual bicycle pump to fill the air bags on my half ton truck. It never takes more than 10-12 strokes from the pump for each bag.
