I would like to know from you that have an air ride hitch on their 5th or Goose, do you or would you need the air ride for the truck as well? I'm looking to put an air ride hitch on my Goose that I want to make, and just want some input on this.

You can put the air ride on the truck much cheeper than the hitch, but would both be a waste or better?

Thanks y'all!

I have only seen it done one way or the other.

Air hitch in truck or air ride pin, not both.

You can have air ride truck suspension and an air ride hitch, that works good.
