    I am installing Firestone digital air command system on my truck today and it calls for an ignition hot lead under the dash for the digital reciever part in the cab that displays the psi. I need some help finding an ignition hot lead that comes on only when the ignition is on and a good ground under the dash. Any help will be appreciated.

    How much power will this be pulling?

    Check out your local auto parts store and pick up an "add a fuse"

    Then all you have to do is pick a fuse slot that is ignition controlled such as the aux power fuse or radio. Then plug in the add a fuse and pull power there.

    Keep in mind that the compressor itself needs to be powered through a relay.

    I am aware of the compressor is wired through the relay and straight to the battery, the control pad does not use much amperage just to control the psi that is relayed to the pressure switch. I am considering the the add a fuse but also considering just splicing into the cig lighter.

    Copy. Either way should work out nicely! Does the digital readout give you a constant airpressure reading? Like, maybe I can possibly put up just the readout and sender and be able to moniter my air system?

    Yes the digital readout constantly moniters the air pressure andwill not go below 5 psi. Really works very well

    Sorry for bumping such an old post, that out of the way here's my question.

    OP or anyone else with the Firestone Remote Air Command Air Tank, where did you mount the compressor? Couldn't find one being installed on a Tacoma on youtube or anywhere else. Also, what are your thoughts on the system in general? I like that its wireless yet will give you constant readings of the psi.

    I put it under the hood. drivers side behind the fuse block. keeps it close to power so you don't have to run a really long wire

    Install of Air Lift pump and valves (independent right/left inflate) in one of the bed storage containers.
    Just a thought. Another is behind the bed liner which is popular.

    Looks great, I'm leaning towards this position. Did you have enough material with the kit?
