Stage 3 Motorsports and Keep Your Daydream have teamed up to help you get the most out of your towing experience. For those of you that do not know, Keep Your Daydream (KYD) is Marc, Tricia, and their family cataloging their extraordinary vacations through YouTube Channel and other social media platforms. In addition to their adventures they also make videos and blog posts with helpful tips about buying an RV, DIY things while camping, and all sorts of other essential traveling and towing information. They have been doing this for a few years now and have traveled all across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. They began with a simple 2013 F150 with a 6.2L engine and a 2007 Malibu Wakesetter, through the years they transferred through other vehicles and trailers big and small til eventually ending up beginning this season with a 2019 F250 6.7L Powerstroke Diesel and a 2017 Airstream Flying Cloud 30' Bunkhouse. Through the years they have gathered all sorts of knowledge when it comes to towing, hauling, and most importantly getting from point A to point B safely. Which is why they were the perfect people to talk to about creating this new system. That way you can purchase an all-in-one kit to make your towing journey even better and safer.
Our "Keep Your Daydream" Complete Air Spring System comes with an ARB Dual High-Output Air Compressor Kit, an Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate PLUS Load Leveling Kit w/ Internal Jounce Bumper, an extra aluminum air tank from ARB, and an Air Lift Single Needle Air Gauge. The ARB air components work perfectly with the Air Lift Air Spring System to help keep your truck leveled out when loaded down, granting you better handling and stability while you roll down the road. This total air spring and compressor system is perfect for practically any 2017-2019 Super Duty towing application, and the ARB compressor and air tank give you spare pressure to run tools in case of any trouble out there on the road.
The first piece of this kit is the dual high-output air compressor. ARB created this product to be able to output over 6 cfm of airflow, giving you more than enough air to handle your ARB Air Lockers, tire inflation duties, air springs, or even power your air tools. On top of its big-time airflow, the ARB Dual Air Compressor Kit is waterproof and built tough enough to survive practically any off-road challenge, making it the perfect choice for the avid off-road adventurer that needs and air compressor system that can handle the most brutal terrain on the planet. For its output, the ARB Dual Compressor System is surprisingly compact and can be mounted just about anywhere on your vehicle of choice. This version of the Dual Compressor Kit is powered off a 12V source and comes with an activation rocker switch. Each compressor features a pressure cutoff switch, its own air filter, a current load protection loom, and thermal load protection to help make it one of the most reliable air compressor systems. The Dual Compressor Kit comes with mounting hardware for installation. The air compressor along with the spare tank are key components and can help ensure that you are not stranded on the side of the road for hours on end waiting for a tow truck. These components can also make sure that your air springs are well inflated. Secondly, the strength of this kit comes from the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate PLUS Load Leveling Kit w/ Internal Jounce Bumper. Unfortunately sometimes when you are towing heavier loads your truck can sag which could lead to worse breaking and an eventual loss of control. Not to mention the strain it puts on your rear end. This particular kit includes an Internal Jounce Bumper that prevents damage to the system when driving with an empty airbag. The Jounce Bumper is capable of supporting up to 5000 lbs. of load-leveling capacity and keeps your F250 or F350 riding stable, level and comfortable whether hauling or towing a heavy load or cruising around unloaded. The closed-cell urethane foam Jounce Bumper inside the air spring provides a cushion of air that absorbs shock, eliminates harsh jarring on rough roads and protects your truck without bottoming out. Also included in this kit are the air springs that sit between your truck's frame and leaf springs. When inflated, the springs take the pressure off your truck's suspension and cause your truck to sit much more level and give your truck more even distribution of weight between its front and rear. The more even stance and weight gives your truck back a proper center of gravity and keeps all four of your tires in better contact with the road, giving you back all of the control you need when towing or hauling heavy loads. Air Lift's LoadLifter Ultimate Air Springs are fully adjustable for whatever load you're carrying and can hold anywhere from 5psi to 100psi of air pressure to compensate for a huge weight range. The kit also includes heavy-duty hardware including stainless steel roll plates which protect the air springs and help increase the load capacity of the springs by up to 10%. The kit also includes stainless steel braided air lines for added protection against sharp edges and road debris and stainless steel air spring mounting hardware to keep everything secure. We also have this particular Air Spring kit for 2011-2016 Super Dutys as well.
Lastly, the final two components of this particular kit are the one-gallon aluminum air tank and the single needle air gauge from Air Lift. The air tank is the perfect companion to the dual compressor kit from ARB in this kit. It holds a gallon of air and allows for 150 PSI air pressure. That high level of air pressure gives it more than enough ability to re pump up the air springs in this kit, or if you need it to run a power tool you can do that too. It's aluminum construction makes it 50 percent lighter than the competitor's tanks. The tank also incorporates two 1/4 NPT ports with JIC-4 male fittings and comes with mounting hardware for easy installation with minimal drilling. Also included in this kit is an easy to read single-needle air gauge. This gauge is easy to mount and fits perfectly in your trucks glove box for a close to stock feel without taking over the look of your cab (as seen below). Air Lift promotes that this gauge is accurate to within 1% tolerance across the measurement.
Keep Your Daydream and Stage 3 Motorsports have been working hard together to get this kit put together to help you gain greater control over your cargo, keeping your family and equipment safe. The last place that you want to spend any long vacation is on the side of the road.
