Good Morning: I am getting ready to mount my Ride Rites on my 1 ton drw chevy for our new (on order) Max 981. On my past trucks I have put them on either side of the license on the bumper, but looks like the Max comes down further in the back so not sure I could get to them or want to be on my back much longer. I was thinking of making an aluminum mounting plate for them and attaching it to the Torklift bracket. Has anyone found a good place for a bracket or done something creative with these to get them to a place where they are more accessible?
Snowing here this morning pobably not unlike where many of you are this a.m..
Thanks

I mounted my ride rite filler valves inside the fuel fill area. There is enough room to install two valves leaving room to comfortably remove the fuel cap. I didn't want to have to go under the camper or pickup to air up my shocks.

See you out there,

I mounted mine right in the wheel well on that little lip where they crimp the sheet metal of the bed. Above and to the left of my air bag. Been there almost 6-years without a leak. Very easy to access.

I routed the 2 filler lines and valves under the rear seat, that's where I put my air pump also. Makes it really convienent to fill bags and with 20' of air hose it's plenty long enough to reach the tires too.

On the 03 Dodge there is lots of room under the rear seats.

Mount them inside your truck so you don't have to get out to fill them. Mine are under the dash near the floor.
