My friend has the Fifth Airborne on his 30.5 and I have the Mor Ryde. The difference is that the Mor Ryde cushions from stops, starts and all but eliminates the chucking. The 5th AB is more of a up and down cushioning with the air bag and shock. They both work nicely and both have their advantages it's just a matter of preference in the end. I installed mine afterwards due to not knowing any better when I ordered my unit and would not order another unit without one.
