Did you change the shocks in the rear or are you using factory shocks still? I'm looking to upgrade to these as well as I tow up to 7000lbs too and the factory springs are garbage.

Have you towed a trailer since installing? Can you give any feedback? On the website it says they are best for trucks that are constantly loaded, how bad is the ride when empty?

I changed the shocks out later on. If you get the ones that I have you will notice a stiffer ride. I us my truck for towing and have a 20x8.5 enclosed cargo trailer on my truck all the time with up words of 930 lbs total. On my lighter loads you can't really see any sag on the truck but with bigger loads you can. I have said it before and I'll say it again. The truck should have come with something like these from the factory.

You should get their variable model if your truck wont be under a constant load. http://tuftruck.com/products/dodge/TTC-1223V.html They do a similar job but are designed for the more casual user.

A friend of mine installed the 1223's and says he can barely tell a difference in ride quality when empty, but doesn't need to rely on his Airlift 1000's anymore.
I'm leaning towards the 1223 as I want to cut them to lower 2" to match my current stance, and you can't do that with the 1223V.

I can see why you want that, but have you thought of contacting them? I was fairly sure I saw on their website that they can make special orders - maybe you'll be able to get something for the best of both worlds?
