2014 f350 question

so I just bought a 2014 1 ton. I haven't picked it up yet. I have questions about it since this is my first diesel I own. im not new to diesels, I work as a farmer. but this is my first personal one.

I was thinking about putting a sled deck on it. if I do and load it with 2 sleds or quads will the truck sag?

is there any must do to this trucks?

does a stock f350 look funny with a leveling kit and stock tire? I don't like a truck with rake.

sorry I am sure these questions have been asked before. but thanks for all your comments

Truck shouldn't sag with a sled deck on it. And no they don't look bad leveled on stock tires I don't think. In my signature pic my truck is leveled 1.5" up front with stock tires

If you level it and carry two sleds it will sag quite a bit id bet.

Also I was looking at a s&b intake. Would the sock be good for the air filter? I do drive in alot of fields and with my f150 I was finding straw and stuff in my intake.

The only thing Ive noticed with the air bags is a small bouncy feeling when in the very rough stuff. But I imagine I could get some better shock's and cure that.

Do you just use a air chuck to fill them or do you have a onboard compressor

I have just the air chuck and only have to top mine off monthly. The computer would be nice but I don't think its a have to have thing.

What do you keep yours at for psi? I definitely noticed a stiffer ride right after install. Now I keep them at 10psi and barely notice them. The only time I think it may be a little stiff is when hitting sharp bumps, like at bridges occasionally. I have bilstein 5100's and carli add-a-pack in the rear which helps.

I just use the air chuck. right next to my license plate. I only tow a few times a year so it's super easy. Unless someone tows a LOT I wouldn't bother with the compressor and all that. If it's just once a week or a few times a month the chuck is fine (in my opinion)

I can run them at 40 psi (max is 100 psi) and it doesn't sag.
