The closer the valves are to the bag the quicker of a lift you will get. Try to mount them on the side of the frame near the front suspension. The back if you have a cut through of the bed mount the valves on the bags.

Which valves did you get, I'm guessing from AIM/Chassis tech because of the 8 port tank, but which ones did you end up getting?

my tank isnt from AIM (SHAIM) the tank has 4 ports runnin along the front ,1 on top, 1 on bottom and 1 on either side, i believe it is form airlift ,and the valves i got are 3/8" SMC's

Be careful with those SMC, make sure you do not put them in your engine compartment, the heat from the engine gets the valves way too hot. What I ended up doing is mounting them on the side of the frame and I had a cover made and bolted it on the frame to cover the valves.
