If you have ever considered an onboard air system for your truck, now is the time to take a moment and look into them. Not only are they easy to install and operate, they are extremely beneficial and can provide you with the help you need, should you find yourself in a position where your tires need air. You will be able to keep your truck’s tires properly inflated with a 99-06 Silverado onboard air compressor.
Tires that are deflated or not properly inflated will cause problems with your truck. First, you will burn more fuel than you should, and that will mean you have to spend more money to keep your gas tank full. Secondly, tires that are not properly inflated will slow down your truck, and you will find that your track times are not where they should be. Thirdly, you will notice that your tires do not wear properly, and some areas of the tire may be balder or more worn that others. This can be a problem when you drive around town as you may notice bumps more or you may notice that your truck pulls or shakes.
The above issues can all occur when your tires are not properly deflated, but one of the worst things that can happen is a tire blowout. A blowout can happen when your tires do not have as much air as they should, and you may find yourself with a flat or avoiding a car accident due to losing control of the wheel.
99-06 Silverado onboard air systems will save you money in fuel costs and save your tread over the life of your tires. While the air system is designed to fill up your tires, you will find that it is good for other uses too. Imagine an instance where your friend’s tire is deflated, or you find that you need to fill up an inner tube on one of your bicycles. These systems are convenient, and they have more than one use, which makes them worth every dime.
One of the unique things about the onboard air systems offered at AmericanTrucks is that they come with additional accessories to help you when they are in use. For instance, you will find that many of them include pressure gauges, so you know exactly how much air to put into your tires. Many of them also include low pressure sensors and additional hoses.
As you take a look in our online shop, you will notice that there are many available products to include onboard air systems and accessories. One of the popular products we have in stock is the standard air system. Typically sold as a complete kit, you will find that this system comes with the compressor itself, 10 different hoses for you to choose from, installation hardware, panel assembly, and also all of the harnesses needed for installation and use. This type of a system is convenient because it does feature a one-dash control panel, which allows you to use it while you are on the go and you do not have to worry about messing around with a bunch of functions or buttons. You will be able to monitor your air pressure right in front of you and the machine will allow you to make any needed adjustments with a single push of a button.
Another popular product offered in our online store is an onboard air system that comes with a dual train horn. Many fans love this because the horn is not only loud, but it can blow your competition out of the water while you are out on the local strip.
Many of the compressors have a minimum of a one-gallon tank, but most hold a bit more air than that. You will find that the tank is made from a durable and quality steel that is corrosion resistant, so it will last for years. Many of the compressors come finished in an epoxy to ensure that the tank does not rust.
Installation of the Silverado onboard air systems is easy and most of them directly bolt onto your truck without any type of modifications needed. You will be able to mount the system wherever it works best for you. Most manufacturers do offer you a warranty that comes with the onboard air system.
