Tahoe and Airforce 1 install

As if we don't tow enough stuff around, we are adding Airforce 1 brake system to our 04 Tahoe. Does anyone have pictures of a siimilar set up, I am pondering where to locate the air connection without creating an eyesore. We've mounted the Roadmaster brackets and plan on using a Roadmaster 5200 bar. I would assume I would want this bar to start out somewhat level.

I don't have a Tahoe, but even on my Saturn Vue it was able to be installed under the hood on top of the battery case. Inconspicuous and out of the way. Check under the hood for a spot.

I installed mine on an 04 Avalanche and put the box on top of the under hood fuse box cover.

tahoe towing

We have recently purchase a DutchStar with a 330 Cummins with Blue Ox tow bar; we have a 2004 Tahoe; is it possible and safe to tow the Tahoe with the engine we have?

Apologize for butting in on your conversation but felt it related to your inquiry.

We have the same powertrain configuration, ISC 330 in our 07 Ventana 40 footer. I just pulled the Tahoe from Seattle to Red Bluff Ca with absolutely no problems. Lots of twisty windy hills up and down on I5 including the Siskiyous pass The AirForce 1 system was easy to hook up, needed no adjustments and worked exactly as advertised.The Tahoe weighs in around 5400# We have flat towed a Jeep Wrangler at 3500# as well as an enclosed trailer with the Jeep and a whole lot of other stuff in it as well. The only real differance is the "feel" of the tandem axle trailer with spring bars and a sway control is a little different than flat four towing. Infinity Motorcoach did the install of the AF1 system. Top notch all the way. I did have Brazels upgrade to a Pac Brake ad thier Aeroforce 5" exhaust last fall. Money well spent, much better braking, seat of the pants power feels good and the girls really dig the big chrome tip. Good luck.
