AirBag Controls

I just bought an airbag kit from www.jpkustoms.com and I'm looking to go with Dakota digital controls but I'm unsure how to go about picking the right application for myself. When shopping for the digital controls what exaclty specifics am I looking for? Do I look at psi rates or what? Kinda lost here hoping to get some light on the matter.

Kit u bought was it a 2 or a 4-way and also wut kind of compressors do u have? If u have a 2-way u need to get the Dakota controller that has only 2 senors and the PSI that matches the PSI output on ur compressor and how much PSI ur bags can hold. If u have a 4-way get the controller with the 4 sensors and the PSI that best matches ur compressor/bags. The senors control the bags so with 2 u could only go front to back with 4 u can go front back and side to side pretty much individually control each bag i think 4-ways systems are much better if ur going for all around control of the bags. Hope this helps ya man.

did you get your brackets, notch and 4-link yet? If not check out suicidedoors.com, they are awsome and they have really good prices on everything. oh' and from experience certain bags on rangers can rub and eventually pop. trust me i was driving down the road doing 45 and my left front bag blew. that part of the truck hit the ground so hard....then try getting it on a tow truck.... not fun.

www.suicidedoors.com has some great things just hate that they seem to be a one man crew and are hard to contact on some matters that you may need to square away right.
