I am about to buy a boat and I won't be able to tow it without a helper spring setup (I have a DJM 4/6).

What is a good helper spring setup for this application for my flipped axle?

I want something that wont take forever to inflate and something that will be durable.

Any suggestions?

Its an 18' ski boat.

OK. Now I have decided on the Slam Air kit from Airlift. I want an onboard compressor too though.

I want to get the digital 2way gauge from air ride too.

SHould i use a 1gal tank + compressor or just an onboard compressor?

Just get a compressor, Single Needles guage and some 3/8" line and a T-fitting to dual 1/4 inch line. The kit probably comes with most of the hardware... No real need for a tank. Just get one single Dump valve for both bags.

I wouldn't waste the money on an electric valve, I'd say just get a manual paddle control ... have you even looked at the kit that Air Lift makes?

I heard it takes like 2 minutes to air up with the LOAD controller I

Would the Load Controller ! work faster, or would it be overkill. and also would a 1 gallon tank hurt?

You have to question yourself what you are using this for, how often are you going to be pulling the boat? 2 minutes isn't that big deal when loadign the boat up and getting ready to go to the water.
