Default towing with Mopar lift

Hello, I have a 2012 ram express QC with 3.55 gears that I tow a 27ft traval trailer. I have a reese duel cam sway and WDH hitch set up for the trailer and it seams to run real nice. I am thinking about adding the Mopar lift P/N P5155797 and some 34 or 35 inch tires to get rid of some of the rake. Has anyone towed this this set-up? anything I should watch for?
The other option and cheaper one is to just add bilstein 5100 to the front and air lift 1000 to the rear. I believe I would have to deflate the air bags when towning though? Any input would be great.

Are you looking for a leveling kit or a full lift? They're two completely different things. Your title says lift but it sounds like you're describing a leveling kit.

For leveling I would definitely recommend the Bilsteins. They're they best way to level a Ram. You could then add the Airlift bags to reduce sagging when towing. I'm not sure why you think you'd need to deflate them when towing?... That completely defeats the purpose of having them.

I'll also assume you mean level. That will lower your ball a bit. So, you'll need to readjust that. Then you'll need to readjust your wdh. If you do the hitch propely you may not need the bags. I run the bags because I set up my rig with no weight in the back. So the bags are just to make sure. $90 for peace of mind.
