The blocks in the back added 3" of lift (there 5" tall) and have the jounce (sp?),also have b&w gooseneck hitch. Which bags do i need? would like a no drill kit. Which is better inside or outside the frame?

If you only lifted the rear with a larger block then I would go with a set of Firestone's that mount to the outside of the frame and attach to the top of your leaf pack. Keep in mind that they will limit your travel which can make for a crappy ride when unloaded, that is why I remove mine when not towing. The Carli bags are nice because they are longtravel bags.

Air lift sells kits that work specifically with the B&W, and they also sell brackets for trucks with different sized lifts. This is the way I would go. They do not affect your unloaded ride (but you're always loaded, so it doesn't really matter), and install without drilling any holes. You would need kit# 57398 for the air bags.

For the lift brackets, I would assume you would use the 4", but I am not positive since I've never used them.

You shouldn't need any airbag spacers, you lifted your rear with a block which means the distance from upper airbag bracket to lower bracket that wraps around leaf pack should stay the same.
