Default 2009 Ram 1500 Rear Air Bags

Anyone had any luck with air bags to lift. I tow a trailer several times a month looking for something to help level truck. On the fly air fill, on board compressor.
Do not want the coil spring air lifter (that fit inside coils)
I need more pick up my trailer is 9800lbs...I have a load leveling hitch now but is becoming a lot of trouble to hook up each time. Suggestions? Need ASAP

Sounds like you need a bigger truck. I have seen someone use the air bags before and they seemed to like it. I do not recall what the weight of their trailer was.

I second getting a bigger truck. You are pushing the max on the towing capacity of that 1/2T.

As for the airbags, I don't know that they make them for our trucks that don't go in the coil springs. I have been looking into them a lot lately, and that is what I keep coming across. Just out of curiosity, what do you see in them that you don't like?
