bag question
im gettin a 3500 that has bags on the rear and i know what they are for but need to know more about them. a air compressor is used to air them up manually so i do it everytime besides pushing a button or how ever else it is done. how much air is needed in them for pullin 24 ft gooseneck loaded with hay? any info on the bags is much appreciated

Its different on every truck. You'll see it level out when you begin to inflate the bags. I run and recommend running as little as possible so you dont get beat, the bags full of air can be a rough ride.
Does it have a tank valves and compressor on board or is it manual fill at the gas station?!

^^ what he said. They'll begin to level based on the weight you're hauling. My SuperDuty has the firestone bag set up and I normally get level around 38psi when hauling my bulker trailer, but it's 150psi when hauling my QC tri-axle, makes for a rough ride, but I'd rather not be squatting when I pull through the scales.

fill at the pump. well around how much usually makes them bust or how hard is it to bust them?

I'd look at a 2600# bag, and you honestly have to put a full load bottoming out at high speed to blow a bag like that. Now, the most important thing is to mount them so there's no sharp edges or shot surfaces nearby or that'll spell the end of the bag right quick.
