I have a Cap and probably 125 lbs of tools I keep with me at all times so consistently have 500 lbs in/on the bed over a stock open bed.

We had an old Expedition and decided to purchase our first Jayco which was light enough to tow. As we were waiting for delivery, my wife totaled her Edge, so that gave us the opportunity to upgrade to a real TV with an F-150. Fast forward, we eventually sold the Expo and replaced her totaled Edge. Now we're looking for an excuse to upgrade to an F-250. Ford is coming out with Sync 3.0 which will support Apple Play & Google Auto. Unfortunately, My Ford Touch is only available in the Lariat and higher models which we can't afford.

He was responding to a post I made and we got a little off topic there discussing upgrading to an F250 .

Update on my Air Lift 5000 install on my F250...

So far the Bags are holding around 12 PSI which gave me around 3/4" of lift, it has smoothed out the shudder when going over bridge/road joints and rough road and does not bounce unless Im going over a speed hump.

Pick up our new Jayco on 3/19 so will get to play with them more then.

For those currently with Air Bags and a WDH...

Do you take all the Air out of the Bags, setup up the hitch, which does not bring the truck back to full level, then use the Bags to level it out?

Will be running a 12K Equalizer.

Does this put more strain on the bars when you level with the Bags?

I know I'm late to the party but for anyone who's concerned about sag but wants to have a stock ride when not towing I strongly suggest "stable loads". They are great! I had them in my 1500 and I'm waiting to tow the trailer with my 2500 to see if they would help at all. They took away a lot of my sag and really made the rear end feel more solid. No rear side to side action that I've felt with my old airbags. Plus virtually nothing to go wrong with them.

I run mine at 10 psi empty and 20 with trailer,i opted to get the ones with internal jounce stops and I can run them at 0 but 10 helps with the bumps.I hook my trailer and WDH up first then played with PSI til I was happy the way it sat.Im level front to back with 20 psi.I also have to air mine to 0 when unhooking due to rear of truck sitting to high ad trying to un hook is a pain.

I did as well, I realized after I got them installed that I could collapse them (had to do this to get them over the axle) and thought I should have collapsed them out of the truck to see how tall the bumbers are in the bags as with the air out of them there is not much room because the brackets shrink the travel that it would take to move to contact them.

Did you happen to do this?

I am curious how tall they are, I will probably send an email to Air Lift to ask.

Thanks for the info on the Hitch / Air Bag setup...

I ordered the firestone air bags for mine today I looked at heavier springs but I think the bags will do all I want

It's my understanding that with air bags, you want to set up your hitch first without their help and then once that's dialed in, inflate the bags to bring the rear up. The danger of air bags and people who don't know what they're doing is they pump the bags up till its level so everything "looks" good but in reality the front end is far too light.
