if I may jump in here without stepping on toes, but before I bought my new travel trailer I contacted the trailer manufacturer - Keystone directly to ensure I had the correct trailer weights, and then I called Dodge and spoke to a suspension specialist and gave him all the specs. Bottom line, I was within the GCWR with about 700lbs to spare, not quite the 1000lbs I wanted as a buffer.
Now, I did haul a members car with a trailer a month back and with a combined weight of about 4000lbs, the truck did saga very minor amount, and with the new trailer being heavier, the sag was more present. I purchased TLC's kit based on 2 reasons:

1. they are VERY knowledgable with their products and ensure NO one exceeds the safest limits of there rig. Which means their product isn't going to raise the weight capacity, it isn't going to increase GCWR and they state that. Their bags are designed to level a vehicle if there is sag present, it also adds a stability to the truck.

2. Their equipment is completely free of the springs and sits right on the axle. Not a bag in the spring type setup which here in my city, no one wants to touch or install just due to issues with the bags ripping, or being over inflated. the TLC bags are a bigger stronger donut style bag that sits away from any component which is a great idea.

I didn't buy my kit to increase GCWR, I bought it to tighten up the back end of my truck, and level it safely so I can pull my travel trailer safely and level to reduce any excessive strain on the truck.
