Default 2013 Ram 1500 6" Lift Towing questions

Hey guys I have a 2013 Ram 1500 and I have been looking at getting some timbren bump stops. I have heard that they are supposed to help with the sag when towing and was curious if anyone has used them. I am hauling a 20' V Nose enclosed which with 2 bikes in it weighs roughly 4200 lbs. And also if you guys have a good way of getting an accurate tongue weight without have a tongue scale. I do not want to have to purchase one.

When I had a 6" lift on my 1500 I used Airlift 1000's with the Airlift Lift n Lock spacers. Worked out very well and is a much better system than timbren bump stops IMO. I'd look into that setup if I was you.

I have a 6" lift with the Airlift Wireless one compressor with bags and tow my 24' travel trailer with it no problems. Never used the timbrens but I can recommend the Airlift system! I just set what pressure I want in the bags on my remote, listen for the compressor to fill em up and I'm good to go with zero sag at all!

How much did it cost you for the wireless compressor system? And do you guys have tow mirrors or regular mirrors? I have the regular mirrors on my truck and I have a hard time seeing around the trailer. Just curious the best place to buy some tow mirrors.

I currently have the regular mirrors. It's definitely hard to see around the trailer. I found this website that I'm looking at buying a set from. Prices aren't too bad.

The wireless one I bought from here, the bags are separate

I have a Zone 6" with 35s and tow daily around 4500. I use weight distribution hitch and have zero sag in rear even with the bed of truck loaded and towing. weight distribution cost was $380 Installed. I was also considering timbren bumpstop and Airlift system. I'm sure as others have mentioned that the Airlift would work but i prefer the stability of the weight distribution hitch.
