    Factory thus far
    Did both Air Lift and Firestone Ride Rite on my Tacoma before I traded it in and I gotta say the Firestone was a much better kit over all from the lines to the fittings to the brackets, finish and even the bags themselves really no comparison.

    yes
    highly suggest, regardless of the bag kit you choose, that you add the Daystar Cradle. It allows your suspension to flex without worrying about tearing a bag or limiting your travel. Best part is you will never know it is there.

    I run the firestones and i love them. I carry 12-1500 lbs once a week and they will save the leaf springs in my truck. No problems in 6 months. You cant beat the price. Im going to add a rear sway when i find a good used one. Thats also a good option when loaded or towing.

    What air compressor did you use or would you use? Been thinking of adding these myself.

    No on board compressor. I just check them once a month they hold air pretty good

    Hahah! Not much and no I don't remember because I'm in my second year in nuke.... and work in a PWR. I got about 75 mrem for this year. Picked up about 70 in our spring outage and got one more in the fall. Most of that 70 mrem was from working in a pressurizer spray valve. If it wasn't for that, I'd have... 10 or so.
