    Does anyone have any recommendations on rear airbags for a 2500. I am planning on using firestone ride right bags. These are for a customers daily driver with a utility body and needs a little help. I didn't want to do springs or timbrens.

    I have bags on my 05. They are great. I got the compressor setup also. I put a sander in the truck, even being 3K overweight the truck sets level with 60psi in the bags. The kit is nice and easy to install. Worth every penny. If you do not load and unload your truck often then you can get by without the compressor and just use the shradder valves.

    i have them in my truck and love them i have an 04 hemi and i overload it alot and the rear end never squats. i would recomend getting the compressor i have a manual fill but its a pain filling them and emptying them and you do not want to drive around with them at anything over 40 psi if the truck is empty.

    I've got the firestones, no on board air. Great investment.

    If I did go with on board air, I would get train horns too!

    hey guys, can you post a picture of where you mounted the compressor? I'm thinking about getting airbags with the interior control. Doesn't seem hard at all to do it but I will like an idea of where to mount the parts.

    Also, for front ends... has anyone used these? http://www.truckspring.com/air-lift-1000-kit-front-80765.html
