what are you looking to do - add helper bags or replace the leafs?? found a couple of places that replace the leafs with a 18 wheeler style setup; looks and works good just a bit $$$$ for me. i'll probably change over when i get the need on a regular basis

I have the exact same truck, but with a 6" lift. I have had the Firestone air bags from day one. I tow a 30' Toyhauler. I haven't had any problems. Tow's much better and level's the ride, especially with the lift.

I don't have an onboard compressor. I fill them up when I tow and deflate to 10psi when done. No problems, not a hassle.

Charlie - post up some pics of your truck and trailer. We all like to see lifted trucks towing trailers!

I installed the Firestone RideRite as well. I have the single gauge, single switch mounted on the front of the drivers seat, and compressor mounted on the frame rail, with the filter ran up under the hood to try and keep it dry. I ran the air lines in the the grommet in the floor under the driverside floor. Only problem I had was with the stock barbed fittings for the air lines on the gauge/switch leaking. I ended up changing out as much as I could to compression type fittings and then using super glue on the remaining barbed fittings to get them to quit leaking. I went with the front of the seat so its out of the way and I didn't have to drill any holes or cut anything, so if I ever have to take it out (who knows why I'd ever do that!) nothings wreaked.

I ran the Air-lift Co. helper bags over the leafs before I swapped to full air-ride. It's surprising how much weight that they can level, but the ride quality was horrible compared to the full air setup.

I removed my Timbrens and went with Airlift air bags and thier wireless air control and compressor. Does the job for my 30' fifthwheel.
Had some issues with the wireless control as it was a new product but Airlift customer service was great and all issues are resolved.
I have nothing but good to say about product & Co.
