    I recently installed the Firestone ride-rite system in my p'up for towing our TT and was looking to add a pressure gauge at the fill valve location (side compartment in the bed). Way back when, I was researching the airbags and saw someone on here had a pic of two gauges mounted in that same compartment but I cannot find that post.

    I need to know which gauges they used or recommend and any other fittings or hardware needed.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I believe Ride Rite sells a gauge in one of their kits. You might want to call them to find out what would be involved in retrofitting their gauge to your kit.

    If you want to go another route, I'm sure you could find a gauge that would work. You'd need to get the correct fittings to mate the the end of the air bag's fill tube to whatever gauge you choose, a shrader valve for filling and some teflon tape.

    This is what I had, but it is controlled with the switch and both bags are tied into the on gauge.
