New Seismic 4113 owner question

looking at the dry hitch weight, around 3800 lbs, wondering if I will need to put air bags in my truck? Truck is a 2018 F350 dually, rated payload is 5340 lbs. Quick number run shows I will have about 1k lbs capacity left after family is in the truck, as I haven't towed with much/anything in the tanks for prior trailers.

Also, where is the fresh tank in this model?

Thanks,
James

I had a 2016 F350 Dually with my 3914, i think its around 3500 hitch weight, i put bags in my truck. That trailers made it squat pretty good. Fords are kinda known for that. I have a 2017 F-450 now and im even debating it in the new truck. I also like the ride it gives


Cheers

I have a 2017 4311 with a 2015 GMC 3500 4 door dually. Based on how mine sits and rides I highly doubt you will need to bag yours.

I tow a north point 377 with my 14 F350 dually and I have air bags on it. Fords do squat more.

thanks all for the feedback. First FW trailer for us, trying to make sure I have the truck prepared correctly. Hoping it doesn't need the bags, but based on the feedback from the ford guys, seems like I better plan on it...

This 4113 better be worth it!

I got the Air Lift 5000 bags from Summit Racing in McDonough, Ga. not far from you. I payed $250.00 for the kit but that was 6 years ago I think their around $300.00 now

that is good info! I just poked around, suspension connection has many kits. Now to figure out if Air Lift or Hellwig are the way to go....

Air bags help. My F350 did squat more than my Chevy does now but I don't think they are a must. Just might be a little more comforting. It is one more thing to deal with though so get one you can control from inside the cab.

It was sitting on the overload springs constantly, so got some Hellwig bags delivered. Now for the install...

I have Airlift 5000 bags on the rear of my 03 F350SD 4x4. I love them. They keep the truck perfectly level.
