MrPiper will become famous soon enough

I have Airlift 1000 and have been very pleased for over a year and over 8,000 miles towing a trailer that weighs around 7,000 lbs. I ran the air nipple through the hole that is already there beside the hitch and air it up with a cheap $20.00 cigarette lighter emergency pump that I keep in the truck anyway just in case of a flat.

I run 5 lbs. when not towing and the ride is, in fact, the same as before the install.

I am NOT a mechanic by any stretch and this install took less than 2 hours in my driveway.

Finally, the payload for my 2012 Bighorn 1500 crew is 1630 lbs. To buy a air bag system that can accommodate 3 to 5,000 lbs. seems like significant overkill to me and the $90.00 price tag is unbeatable.
