Mini Truck Life for 27 Years!
The show began with enthusiasts gathering together in the heart of the Smokey Mountains in Pigeon Forge, TN in the 80’s and 90’s. Mini trucks are a popular vehicle for customizing due to their compact size and affordability. Full-size trucks, SUV’s and station wagons are considered the expert level of the mini truck industry.
The Heart of any Air Suspension System
As a proud sponsor of the Mini Truckin Nationals, we partnered with popular Instagram influencer @Minitruckin_Takeover and Southeast Mini Truckin Nats to giveaway a VIAIR 444C Chrome dual pack. They help us perpetuate the message of “VIAIR is the heart of any air suspension system!” We break down the message how an air suspension system operates below:
- The compressor acts as the heart, air bags as the lungs, the controller as the brain, and airlines are like veins through the body.
- If your heart fails, the rest of your body cannot function.
- That’s why it’s important to purchase a good quality heart in order to receive a good running system. It’s as simple as that.
VIAIR’s NEW 485C Gen. 2 Dual Pack’s sleek new head design with 100% duty cycle @200 PSI is the perfect solution to upgrade your trunk setup! Read more about our 485C Gen. 2 dual packs in our previous blog post here.
