Better airline setup for airbags

Newbie here.

After getting my PF, i wanted to get airbags in to help with family trips pulling our popup (and bicycles and gear, there are 5 of us). I hated how the airline routed out of the bottom of the rear spring. I wasn't really interested in trying to slot the bumpstop or either of spring seats, so I went another way.

Anyone that has owned/driven a dually, knows how much checking air pressure can suck. Well, I bought a kit once that added a length of steel-braided line that extended the valvestem to the outboard tire. A quick visit to amazon yielded my two 9" braided lines. And I was also able find a pair of 90 degree bends. The pics show how clean it ended up. Multitudes better then the "Big loop" with the kit airline.

I hope this helps resolve some of those funky airline views.

Looks great. Are those the firestone 4119? airbags or something else. They look like they have a better height than the ones I am running.

This was a kit from Firestone, the Coil Rite Air bag kit, 4118.

I've been thinking about getting them too but since the 2017 has stiffer springs I was thinking just swapping out the shocks and springs in my PF to the 2017 spec before getting the bags.
