I see people custom build set ups where the axle bracket can attach to the air bag bracket and you just pull a pen to disconnect it just like the receiver hitch on the back of your truck.

What were you running your air pressure's at? After looking at your specs, it's not the airbags that are making you truck ride rough, it's either the oversize tires or the 6 inch lift.

I've had air bags on two trucks an it made them ride better, but they were also both at stock height.

It's the lift blocks that are killing your ride, not the air bags, I'd never run a block that big.

You should look on the firestone website.They have kits for lifted trucks,they also have a kit that mounts the bags to the axle instead of the top of the leaf spring.That might help you.The carli long travel bags are made for dodge with full leaf springs without blocks.The best solution would be a soft rate full leaf with long travel bags but It would cost alot of money though I think you would be happy with the result.
