Configuring and wiring controls for valves on an airbagged truck can be a time-consuming process. This can be especially tedious if you have a setup of eight valves for control of the front, back, and sides. However, the new switch boxes from AVS make it easy to wire up and manage your air ride. The top-of-the-line ARC-9 controllers come with everything you need in one simple device. All you need to do is feed your wires into the relay box and you're good to go.

Though the boxes themselves are versatile, the new brass-knuckle model really caught my eye. The housing on this particular controller is made of a CNC-machined piece of billet that resembles the infamous hand weapon. If this isn't your style, AVS has you covered with optional small-box versions in various colors. Also available are large and small boxes with toggle switches instead of the rocker-type. Whichever works best for you, they are all made with high-quality components and add a nice touch to a vehicle's interior.

What's In The Box?
For the reasonable price of $190, we received this stylish locking controller attached to a relay box that has all the terminals needed to control eight valves. In addition, two of the connectors have negative feeds to control up and down of the entire air system with the auxiliary outputs of most alarms.
