    if you got them how do you like them...i kicked it around last year but i think i would do it this year for preventative reasons...

    where's the best deal on them?

    any pics on install or how-to's..i have 5 extra leafs under the stock 2 so it doesn't sag but i want to keep it that way

    If you already have added 5 leafs then why would you want Timbrens?

    lol 5! I have one extra, and it doesn't sag hardly at all. Just put in firestone air bags and be done with it. They are cheap. Google Firestone Ride Rite air bags.

    Cheers

    Only problem with those is that you can't run a gooseneck hitch because the bags mount right where the hitch does, on the outside of the frame.

    ok.......

    the 5 leafs were a add a leaf 2.5" lift kit from summit....not even full length...and i want to keep my ride height where it is so that's why i want the timbrens..so i don't sag out the OE leafs...i am hooked up to a PRO PLUS WITH WINGS AND BACKDRAG......VERY HEAVY


    also......about the gooseneck...we are talking about the front here right?...not the rear....

    I figured you were only concerned with the front, but when I saw someone mention firestone air bags, it rung a bell with me that you can't run firestones with a gooseneck hitch

    I figured I'd just mentioned it if you were thinking about the bags and run a gooseneck.

    i have a set on my 2003 f350. should still fit. they HAVE NEVER been used. I put them on with my boos 9.2 v and even lowered with the plow on the ground, they still were touching.

    so i bought f550 springs. now the truck doesnt move an inch when i lift the plow.

    email me at messiershydro@hotmail.com if ya want them

    So where did you get the F-550 springs and how much did they go for? You must have seen a little stiffer ride

    it's just a plow with wings..and a back drag blade...and a slater and a load of salt...

    besides...my truck will never go up for sale...i have too much in it already...

    Oh my bad. I thought that "Pro Backdrag" was one of those rear plows that you put on the ass end of your truck. My fault.
