Here is my Airbags w compressor

Firestone bags with custom spacers for the 8" lift. Yes I know my shock boot is off also Compressor mounted under sled deck and gauge and air filler/dump in cab. Works awesome as you can add/take out air as your driving.

Real nice set up. I heard airbags make your truck ride rougher, any truth to that?

Without a compressor they would (unloaded) but with the compressor I just dump then to 10lbs and they feel fine.

i may be wrong but it looks like your sacrificing unloaded spring travel there.you only have the thickness of the bags for travel, correct? isnt there taller bags available?

If I was doing serious driving and bagging the hell out of it down a cutline im sure it would but the travel is enough for all the offroading I do. I usually have 2 sleds/quads loaded and also pull a 32ft Arctic Fox trailer that weights like 15,000lbs. It is a great setup for me but may not work for everyone.

hoave you tugged your 5er with them yet? im looking to get some for mine but i need the travel aswell, id like to hear the difference.my 5er is a little heavier at 40' long and the two quads in the back and on highway bumps it sure bounces alot. but i do also bag it in the cutlines and trails and such ,
you got snow in your prof pic, where you from?

I'm from alberta, I dont have a 5th wheel its a bumper pull so it pulls waaay heavier than a 5th wheel. I then have my quads loaded on the deck generator and gas cans under the deck so its a heavy heavy load.
