Air Bag's

Thanks for looking...looking for input/company's yall like dealing with air bag suspension/over loads. Also another issue I'm finding in my searches is cab chassis (F350 4wd drw) aint listed. I'm not trying to re-invent the wheel or do a bunch of fab work just to make it happen....Have/had a landscape company and hauled 4+ tons in the bed and was only 2-3 inches off the bump stops, truck handled it fine but I'd like to feel "safer" with that much weight in the bed. Thanks for looking/imput

Any F-350 drw bags should work. I've got them on my F-350 drw and won't own a truck without them.

You hauled 8,000 pounds in the BED OF YOUR TRUCK?...You, sir, are an idiot.

I have Firestones on my 08 and also on my 04. They're good.

I am not going to get in a pissing match... But my truck is a cab chassis (with proper bed for doing so) and I didn't exceed any weight limits (either the truck or cdl wise). I could do this day in day out if I needed to, long story short didn't have a choice. And thank you both for the responses. I have found that they will work but have to fab up a different mount for the top of it cause the frames are different than the "normal" F350.

E99.... And trying to find a Firestone dealer local so I can get them that way, but not in a huge rush as $300-400 ain't cheap.

I put a set of Firestone Bags on my 08 a few months back and I absolutely love them. Pulling the fifth wheel and tractors is so much nicer now!!!
