    If you go down this route, would you mind doing a JT writeup? Lol. Iím thinking Iím gonna need to do something to keep the rear end from sagging when loaded down for longer trips... especially with so much cargo space in the bed. I was looking into some kind of air bag that I can level the rig once loaded up but canít really find anything that I know would work for sure, and is something that I can install myself.

    Will do. When we recently added on the room to our house, with drywall or wood in the bed, it visibly had some sag as well as the ride felt different. Hopefully these things will solve that.

    What tongue weight you plan on towing ? The spring helper bags work but they're gonna firm up the ride a lot.

    Don't know yet but probably a 20 foot boat or so. Air Ride says to leave 5 psi in these all the time so hopefully with no load there won't be a noticeable difference in ride comfort. I'm just hoping to level it out.

    I pulled a 6100 pound wakeboard boat behind mine and the EVO springs hardly noticed it. I thought for sure air bags wouldíve been necessary. Iíd say youíre fine without them.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
