200 psi viair system

VIAIR is the way to go. Probably went overboard but that's what I wanted. I wanted a set of air horns to blow those !@#$%^&*( people who pull in front of you off of the road.
I also have an air hitch as well as 17.5" tires(125 psi) on the 5'ver and 19.5" tires(120 psi) on the F350.
I mounted (2) Viair 480C compressors on the frame and installed (2) 5 gallon air tanks -- one on each side up under the rear fender wells bolted to the bed frame rail. I have an air hose connection on each side. I have plenty of air. I can run an air gun; I have an air bottle jack, and I also use the air to blow leaves and debris off of the slide outs --- and anything else that may come up.
The fun part is the Hornblaster SHOCKER air horns -- 4 of them. I guarantee you can hear me coming.

Enjoy the road. We sure do.

19.5" on F350 SRW


Yes. I got the wheels and tires from Rickson Wheel Manufacturing in Hunt Valley Maryland.

My wheels are powder-coated steel with Michelin (load range H) 19.5" tires. They are absolutely great. Wear like iron. As long as you stay close to tire diameter it will not affect your speedometer. They also offer aluminum wheels.

Take care.

We have a ViAIR 400P RV that we use for both the RV and the truck if needed. Very small and portable does a great job.
