Oh okay. Well honestly I would rule out going to the new OEM air suspension option. I can definitely see it being very costly and not worth it for what you are looking for.

I have the Airlift 1000's and know many people who do as well and haven't heard of anyone having problems with them wearing out from grit/road conditions. The benefit to them is that they are very cheap and easy to install. Airlift does have a lifetime warranty as well so if they do wear out for reasons like that they should provide you with new ones.

The TLC kit is definitely a good option as well. Just a little more pricey. They are capable of handling more PSI and therefore more weight handling though. So that's definitely an upside. The one downside I've heard with them is that even with the lowest recommended air pressure in them they are lifting the back end of the truck giving you more rake.

I installed my bags with a WirelessOne compressor which makes them super easy to use. I can inflate or deflate them with a push of a button whenever I need to. I'd definitely recommend the on board compressor no matter what bags you go with.
