No.

The airbags help you handle the payload better, but it doesn't increase the payload. Now if your bed is overloaded it will probably handle better with airbags than without but it's still overloaded.

I don't use a compressor; I have a portable in the bed as part of a jump box I already carry. When I installed the bags I thought I would eventually add the compressor. After living with them for a few months I didn't find myself inflating and deflating often enough to warrant an onboard compressor.

Default Variable rate rear springs

Maybe I should have started a different thread. Do they make variable rate springs for the rear of our trucks?

If that was your first thought, then probably yes

I dont have a compressor either. I dont have any need to inflate and deflate the bags enough to warrent a compressor. IF I am going to need to add to them i just carry a 5 gallon air tank to inflate if need be.

Of course my truck is lowered and the main reason I got the air bags was to help with ride quality during every day driving due to the drop springs in the rear being too soft.
