Recommendation for rear axle air bags for leveling

I have a 2014 Ram 3500 DRW and am looking for an air bag system for the rear. I get a couple inches of sag in the rear from level with the front end. It's a 4wd so front is higher. Need to raise the bed to level out.

What systems are you using that work well and do I really need an on board air pump if I carry a compressor and tank on board the 5er? (6 RV tires at 120psi, plus 6 on the TV I carry it on board for my own tire pressure maintenance) I realize it will take longer to level than just pressing a button but I'm fine with that.

Firestone air bags on mine. No compressor required. Get a low pressure hand pump (Harley Davidson makes a nice one) and save a few hundred bucks. I only have to top off the air a couple of times a season.

I have the Air Lift with an onboard compressor. Set me back about $1000 installed but they're worth every bit. Easy to adjust the lift while driving. You can soften or stiffen the ride with the touch of a button. They're so much easier than having to use a manual pump or compressor. They self adjust with temperature as well. When it's cold out they inflate to the preset pressure as soon as I unlock my doors with the key fob and also release some air when the temp gets warmer. Gotta love them!

I'm using Air Lift on my Bronco and have never had a problem.
