    What Air Bags?

    What air bag setup you guys running? Ive got a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 CCSB with 5.9L Cummins. Running 35" Ridge Graps with Don Thuren leveling kit, track bar, and Thuren house shocks. Before I put the level kit on it set it down to a little past level. Now it sits it down too far. Just need some help back there. What are you guys running? Been looking at the Air Lift 5000 89295 Ultimate Plus with jounce bumper. Probably just air it up thru air lines as I need it for now and then go back and add compressor later. I know to plumb the lines seperate so they dont just swap air back and forth. Anything else I should look at? TIA

    We've run a few on our pickups at work to help out when hauling a trailer. I don't remember the specific kits though. One thing is to get good stover lock nuts. We had one kit kept loosening with nylocks and split washers. I'm not sure of the reasoning. It may have been because the kit had brackets that mounted on the outboard side of the frame instead of directly under it. Additionally I'm not sure if you're talking about the rear sitting low when towing or not towing. I'd advise against using airbags to level your truck out if not towing. It'll ride like shit. We forgot to bleed the air out after unhooking a couple times. After the first bump you immediately realize this..haha

    I used to install the Firestone Ride Rite kits. Great feedback from customers. Drilling through the frame is a bitch, but the kits are nice.

    I have always run Firestones.

    The 2003+ kits don't require any drilling.

    I picked up a set in 2003 for my 2003 Dodge 3500. Before I sold it I removed them. I then installed the same bags on my 2007. They were still holding air when I sold that truck last year. 15 years!

    I installed the Firestone Red Label bags on my 2016 Ram 3500. They hold more pressure and handle more weight.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
