Forget about fidgeting around with your leveling system—the SmartAir does all the work for you. It automatically senses if your suspension is not level and fine-tunes your shocks to make things plumb again. When you’re loading up or dropping off, your SmartAir gets to work and gives you the perfect amount of support.
Old-school automatic levelers used unreliable levers to determine ride height. They were hard to mount, easily damaged, and nearly impossible to calibrate. Your breakthrough SmartAir uses a magnetic height sensor with an integrated ECU for precision measurements and exact adjustments.
Along with the height sensor, your SmartAir comes with an air compressor, wiring harness, mounting hardware and detailed instructions. Plus, it’s easy to install and has no lines running to your dash. What's more, your SmartAir comes with a 2-year warranty.

Automatic leveling system adds and releases air to rear bags as needed to level truck when hauling a load. The system works perfectly. Keeps the truck absolutely level. I think the only thing I would add is a gauge and a manual over-ride switch. I used the wire that came with the kit to make the truck kneel to help with un hooking the trailers. It took all day to install, but I put the wiring and the air lines in a wire loom case to protect them. It helps to pre-assemble the air bags. I used the Ride-Rite air bags from firestone and the bolted rightup with no problems. Had a few 1000# loads in the truck so far and it rides alot better. I still have to try the trailer.

convenient, neat system. Automatic leveling system adds and releases air to rear bags as needed to level truck when hauling a load. Works great. I'm thinking about trying one modification. I plan to try installing a relay on the power wire to the system and running a light guage wire and switch into the cab. Once a load is added and proper compressor function is achieved. I can cut the power and stop the system from continually releasing air and then adding air again and again. I can't think of another method to achieve this, but I think it will work fine in this manner. Great Buy through AutoAnything. I checked everywhere. Craig

Don't by intimidated by all the wires, everything is labeled where it goes. I made a bracket to mount the compressor and solenoid. Without rushing it took most of day to install the air bags and Smartair Controller. With it installed for a couple weeks now, it made a huge improvement when towing a 16' utility trailer, backend doesn't sag and less bounce from bumps in the road when towing. It also reduced the rear-end of the Dakota stepping out when going through a curve that has bumps or washboard in it when empty. Was initially concerned about the price, but it's much better than overload (heavy duty) springs.

Piece of cake to install. Just plan some time to do it, it took me about 3 hours. Best tip I can give for the installation is to have good cobalt drill bits on hand. Maybe one more tip might be to take down your spare tire and mount compressor and air valve to frame using the spare to cover it ( seemed like it would be better protected there). The system works perfectly. Keeps the truck absolutely level, maybe to level. Compressor kicks in just about every time I move the truck to put sometime in the bed. My girlfriend says its going to make her self conscious and of course it dumps air just as often when things are removed. I am going to set the sensing switch a little higher so more weight has to go in the truck before it compensates. I still give the Smart Air system a 10 out of 10.

I have a '06 Jeep TJ. I checked that there is an air spring application for my Jeep. If this is correct then would y'all know how this kit would work off road? Or with my current 2.5" lift kit? I'd be sure to carry an air tank for airing down off road if that is doable with this kit?

Hello. The springs would not work quite well for off-road purposes. My best suggestion to get the best lift kit would be shocks or coil overs for a better ride quality. The air springs will be very stiff and not take the beating to well.flag Accept Answer
