Adding Air Compressor for Air Bags and to Inflate Tires on 2010 Toyota Sequoia w/Air Lift Air Bags


2010 toyota sequoia Limited 4wd 5.7L Bought the air lift helper bags from you guys a while back and Im very happy with them but have been adjusting them manually using a separate stand alone/portable air compressor. Can this on board system be plumbed using a T connection or something so I could attach an extension hose to the compressor for putting air in my tires as well or is this strictly a one trick pony? The dedicated compressor with the out of sight/clean install and pressure monitoring really appeals to me but the portable viair compressor I keep in the vehicle can handle all my compressed air auto needs helper air bags, tire inflation, etc. Thanks in advance for your time.

The Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System # AL25980 doesn't have the necessary oomph (to use a technical term) or components to handle inflating vehicle tires but there are other systems that are rated for this.

Basically you will be looking at compressor systems that also have an air tank and that come with an inflation hose (so you wouldn't have to add an extension). Below is a list of options that you can use for your application:
# AL25690 # AL25572 # F2168 # F2549 # F2266 # F2198
# F2591 # F2239 # F2047 # F2543

I have linked some videos on a few of these systems. A couple of things to think about are the ability of the compressor and the size of the tank. More heavy duty compressors and larger tanks are more capable so keep that in mind when choosing a system.
