Default Rear bags for towing

Anyone have aftermarket rear bags for towing/hauling? Don't think I'd need an auto compressor or anything. Just load up all my stuff, adjust, and go!

I'm getting ready to make a 1900 mile move back to Illinois. I'll have a trailer, but IDK what all I'll have on the trailer vs. in the bed of the truck. I just don't want it to sag all the way back. I'll have between the trailer and truck: 850 lb. gun safe, Harley Davidson Street Glide, bed, bed frame, washer and dryer, computer chair and desk, clothes, 60" TV, TV stand, guns, dresser, tools, kitchen plates/pots/pans etc, and other small misc. junk.

Kind of looking at this one:

Those will help for sure, get in touch with Discount Auto performance, they are a sponsor here at the site, get in touch with either FastNugly (andrew) or Jinkle (Jeremiah) they will get you great prices. You can also look at the TLC unit (total load control) but might be over kill for you. Most install this with the filler valve right next to the hitch.

Air Lift 1000. Slip them in the rear coils & run the airlines away from the exhaust & anything sharp. I put in 20 pounds when towing a trailer.

Airlift 1000 was easy to install and works great on my RCSB Express.

I have the Air Lift 1000 kit as well. Took about 1 hr to install and work great while towing or putting heavy loads in the bed.

Also agree, airlift 1000 is all you need. Easy install, less then $100, you can't go wrong. Lead the air valve just to the right of the license plate, drill a small hole through the plastic plate, looks like factory install. They work great. Installs in about 40 min.

Another vote for the Airlift 1000. I considered the TLC system but it was more than I felt I needed so I couldn't justify the price. Airlift is definitely the biggest bang for the buck.

Just throwing another option out. When I was looking for bags for my F-250 I looked at the Airlift and I looked at the Firestone Ride-Right. I chose the Firestone kit can't explain it just seemed better put together. I am sure the AIRLIFT is the same the basic kit comes with everything you need and if you don't have a compressor it has the fittings you can run as well.
