Sweet. Be sure to keep an eye on your tongue and bed clearance when going in and out of driveways and through dips until you know your full range of motion that is safe. I about killed my bed coming off a road, across a rain gutter and up into a driveway the first time I pulled my 32ft 5er with my 05 lifted 6" on 35s. Luckily it just barely didn't hit. Your trailer looks to sit up a little higher and looks good behind the truck. Wish I was going to camp at the Nascar race this weekend!

How did this tow for you? I have 305/60/18 Cooper STT's on my truck and it was a bit squarrly on me. but I think it could have been my air bags. I'm not convinced that airbags are needed.

Nice rig..looks awesome and I wish you many years of enjoyment

You are having squirrelly handling with air bags?

Air bags lift the rear to ensure level towing and head light alignment at night...Not to make up for lost load caps.

If the truck feels unstable when towing,may I ask you 1 question?

Are your air bags fed from one line or two?

This question may or may not help....just asking
