    I have airlift bags in my rear coils along with the replacement air suspension in the back as well. I tow quite a bit so I got them for that reason. I keep a small compressor that “says it fills car tires” that I got from DIY. It doesn’t fill my tires beyond about 55 psi. Guess it just isn’t strong enough. But I have a bigger compressor for my tires at home anyways. It plugs into the lighter type outlets and works perfectly to fill my airlift bags when I need to fill them up for towing. I also store in my rear jack storage area, but I have an xl so there’s more room in that jack storage area for me I guess. It works perfect for the bags and that’s what I use it for. Might be an option if you’re gonna do the airlift bags.
    Also my suspension compressor only kicks on for maybe 5 seconds tops when I start up the truck for the bladders on the shocks. It’s not very long.

    Good points. Once the bags are inflated, they'll pretty much always have something in them and the compressor will be just topping them off. So, it's not having to fill that entire volume, but it is having to fill 5 or 8 times the volume of whatever it has to for the sleeve bags to top them off. I didn't know that about the TBSS bags. That brighten's my ray of hope. I don't need a fast fill time, just one that doesn't exceed the compressor's thermal capacity.

    Those of us that don’t run on rubber band style tires on gigantic wheels have to run with more PSI! I’m running a 31 inch tall LT truck tire. Lol. Thats what gets me through snow and all the other crap Mother Nature throws at me haha.
