My truck with WD hitch drops no more than an inch, and I only noticed that when I measured before and after. No air bags or blocks.

But, at the end of the day, it's your truck and trailer.. do as you wish. Your doing the right thing by asking those who are already doing it with similar setups.
Thank you I'm hoping to sort it out this weekend. I'm not going to be loading any water but just with the Batteries & Gas Tanks i think maybe another 200lbs.

Of course the WDH is the required equipment, but air bags are a very nice supplement. I am not saying they should compensate for a poorly set up WDH, but they do add stability and you can fine tune the ride. Don't write them off is all Im saying, they are great to have.
