I have them. The bags are easy to install. The onboard compresser and hose routing takes a little bit more effort and is time consuming. Took me about 7 hours from start to finish. Go to Ride-Rite Website Redirect or Air Lift Company to find them.

I got bags on the back of mine and LOVE them but it's kinda custom install right now. I got an on board tank (no compressor) feeding a delayed leveling valve. That way I can air up the tank with the trailer empty, then when I load a car it airs up the bags til the truck is level again. Unload and it dropps the pressure back down.

Helper bag kits are a pretty easy job with the right tools. Air Lift and Firestone are both nice kits that come with all the hardware you need. Also Air Lift has some nice auto leveling compressor set up's.
