Default Air Lift

Well Tue evening we are going to install the air lift 1000 air bags and the Wirelessone compressor system on my 2010 Ram Big Horn. Going to do it at my buddies shop, he has a lift, I think that will make it easier then over my pit.

You shouldn't have any problems with the install, the garage lift will surely speed things up. I installed this about 3-4 months ago. Just jack up the frame and let the suspension droop, and stuff the air bags in the springs. Then route the air lines to your preferred spot.

I spent the majority of my time deciding and routing the air lines. This was the best improvement I have made so far. If you've ever hauled or towed anything that made you disappointed by the ride height when loaded, you can't go wrong for the price of these bags.

I just hauled 5k lbs of gravel on a 2300 lb trailer with the bags pumped up to 33 psi and it looked like the stock ride height. I leave the bags aired up to above 30psi all the time and the rear susp is a little stiff but I'm coming from a 3/4 ton so its no different really. With them aired up I get some axle hop at times if the potholes and my rate of acceleration are just right.

I thought about getting a level kit because i got 7/8" lift at the rear hitch with them aired up empty, but decided to leave it sit at stock height. I think a person that tows regularly with these bags could get away with a level kit though, without looking like the headlights are pointed at the sky.

That sounds simple enough.

Well it's in and all went well. It still took around 4hours. We mounted the compressor and the sensor under the back seat out of the weather.

Every winter I leave about 500 lbs of sand in the bed above the axles. Would the AL work well in my case? Or will the ride be too stiff. I do have a 2/4 lowering kit on it.
