    We used to go to a dealer north of Centennial Airport but after way too many issues in too many departments I will no longer go there. Funny enough just two days ago I tried to give them one more chance due to convenience of location. I needed two crush washers for my transmission plugs. I swung by they were out of stock but quoted me $4.50/ea. That sure seemed high so instead of ordering I decided to shop around. I called another local dealer that I have had FAR better luck with. Part was in stock for $1.90/ea. Same exact part.

    Compare to other 3rd gens?
    Depending on lift maybe new uca to push wheel forward?
    How wide are your rims? Will they work with the dirty fives?
    Will you need wheel spacers for the stock rims? So ya can clear the uca.

    Remove the mud flaps, cmc, maybe hammer the pinch weld. Possibly trim some plastic on the front fender.

    Anyone know of a way to create a switch to inflate and deflate tires from switch pros 9100?

    I have the “sponsored by wifey air system” but it’s a switch actuated inflation and deflation process from the air manifold. I’m wanting to connect the air lines then press the SP9100 inflate to inflate and press the deflate switch to deflate.

    Video links to what I’ve found:

    Agriculture air inflation and deflation, with a CTI - central tire inflation rim

    https://youtu.be/Z06a9ffaA3U
    (Not interested in going the CTI route)

    Wound need 2 switches. One for each solonoid.

    But ya can’t use a true auto system because ya can’t put the air lines through the axles

    Correct, and you can get real fancy and do 2 regulators. One to the air up pressure, the other to air down ( if you can find the correct regulator) otherwise you’ll need to watch a gauge to know when to stop letting air out

    So run 2 switches to 2 regulators with a gauge? Because the wifey air system comes with a gauge

    I haven't known the actual weight of the heaviest loads I've pulled, and I don't do it that often, but in my limited experience I'd have to agree with that. I also don't have a brake controller, nor have the trailers had sway control that I know of (because honestly aside from a special kind of hitch I'm not sure what that is).

    Holy hell... not gonna lie... that whole system is taking one of the simplest tasks and making it super complex. I'd vote just get an indeflate and ditch that "system".

    Also valve stems in the wheels wells??? What if you go wheeling in snow and they get caked in snow and ice... or caked in mud and shit? Not to mention potential damage from rocks and shit. Good lord that system is dumb as fuck.

    The switch would control a solenoid that Leads to the regulator.

    @lambo is correct in your over complicating it. The wifey is an over glorified quad hose.

    To air down, it’s gonna take longer since your not removing the valve core.
