Airbag suspension

Hello I have a 2004 f250. I currently have 33" tires but am planning to get 35" tires pretty soon. I would also like to lift my truck about 2 inches maybe 3 in the front the level it out some but I was wondering if anybody has added airbags to there leaf springs. I would like to put bags in the front and back so I can raise it a couple inches and when I'm towing I can level it back out. I already have an onboard air compressor so all I need is the bags and mounts has anyone done this and if so what size bags did you get? Thanks

IMO, if you're using your truck to tow and you plan on jumping into the bed from time to time, I wouldn't go much past a front level and maybe a 350 rear setup with bags. Lifted trucks look nice but they become pretty annoying when you have to pole vault into the bed every time you need to load/unload something.

Plus, the functional point of lifting your truck is to increase ground clearance for off road. If you plan on an air bag setup, you're only going to be able to run the largest tire that will fit under your lowest ride height which is most likely 35" anyway.

Again, this is just my opinion.
