If you’re a Jeep enthusiast, you have probably heard of Hauk Designs from Pennsylvania. Kenny Hauk, the owner, has been involved with this passion since a young age. Kenny and his crew of expert fabricators and mechanics build one-of-a-kind vehicles with inspiration from classic designs and notable styles throughout history. Pairing American icons with show stopping creations is the goal of Hauk Designs. You might be familiar with their builds named River Raider, Rock Rat or Dune Raider. Another favorite is Project Torque, which is the first 24-valve Cummins Diesel JK Wrangler. Read More about Hauk Designs Premiers on History Channel’s Road Hauks

We’re excited to share our new DOT approved Push-to-Connect fittings, made from nickel-plated brass for durability and corrosion resistance, with a max working pressure of 200 PSI. These fittings make installation of an airline a breeze! Simply push the airline securely into the fitting and it is locked in and ready to go.
Our Push-To-Connect fittings have a highly competitive price point, offering an excellent quality solution for connecting air lines. They provide quick installation, while still allowing airlines to flex and move.
These fittings use an internal collet and an external push button to connect quickly and effortlessly, creating a leak free connection. VIAIR’s Push-to-Connect fittings come in 1/8”, 1/4”, and 3/8” O.D. airline sizes with 1/8”, 1/4”, and 3/8” NPT fittings if applicable.
Push-To-Connect fittings are a type of easily removed compression fitting, or quick connect fitting, that allows an airline to be attached without the use of tools. This saves up to 75% of assembly time when compared to a standard compression fitting. They use a resilient O-ring for sealing and a grip ring (or collet) to hold the air line in place so there are also no loose parts to handle. The resilient O-ring guarantees a leak free seal. The fittings are also re-usable and can be connected and disconnected several times.
Our fittings feature nickel plated brass for increased resistance to corrosion, and all male pipe threads have pre-applied PTFE based pipe sealant, saving you additional time on labor. They have a full flow design, providing 60% more flow area than conventional fittings with internal tube support. Read More about New VIAIR DOT Approved Premium Push-to-Connect Fittings Lineup

When you think VIAIR, immediately, you may think of our tag line “Your Vital Air Source”. Being that the compressor is the vital portion of an air suspension system, you never want to skimp on tried and true quality.
Let’s break it down! Think of it this way: the compressor is the heart of any air suspension system. The air bags are the lungs, the controller is the brain, and airlines are like veins through the body. If your heart fails, the rest of your body cannot function. The same idea applies to your air suspension system. Buy a good quality heart, get a good running system. It’s as simple as that. Read More about VIAIR Compressors,
the Heartbeat of Your Air Suspension System
This past weekend, VIAIR took part in the Forbidden Fantasy Show N Shine show as the presenting sponsor. Forbidden Fantasy Car & Truck Club has been hosting its show in Perris, CA for the majority of the show’s twenty-year history. Since changing its location to Laughlin, NV last year, the show has gained even more interest due to its location and amenities.
The show is set on the palm tree covered resort grounds of Avi Hotel & Casino, overlooking the Colorado River. Brian Goude, the event organizer and owner, reached out to us last year to be the presenting sponsor. Given that the show is mainly based around trucks and mini trucks, and many of its show vehicles run VIAIR compressors, we knew we had to say yes! As the presenting sponsor, we had a designated area and showcased several VIAIR-equipped vehicles and baggers. Read More about VIAIR Presents Forbidden Fantasy Show 2017
