Default Squatty Truck

I have a boat that weighs around 5000lbs. on a trailer that weighs about 1500lbs. and that truck squats pretty bad. I realize it is because of the rear coil springs, and the tow capacity is around 7K with the 3.55 gear, but I want to help this issue a little. Has anyone tried the Air Lift bags that go inside the coil? How do you like them? I found them on multiple websites pretty reasonably priced.... here is one of the sites:

I think I may try them for the small purchase price.. Opinions?

I was also wondering this, I'd like to possibly pair them with the SST lift from Readylift.

I also saw the option for the on board compressor....do you have that or do you just fill from an external schrader valve? I thought about the compressor just for the "awe" factor....

Thanks for the input.

Get them, you won't be sorry! As for the onboard compressor, if you want to be able to air up on demand get the compressor. If you have a compressor in your garage or can wait till you drive to the gas station, save the money and skip the compressor. Just my $0.02.

Way to go MillerTime! Now that you made the announcement you have to get before and after pics going and keep us posted on how you like them.

I don't do alot of towing anymore but have been considering getting some air bags just for the ride. I have heard that they will improve the feel of the rear and help with body roll. Let us know what you think about em'!

Check out the Timbren systems if the whole compressor thing doesn't work out. A few people on a Tacoma board have used them with great success. Probably a lot less money too.
