First Tow with new 3500

She is squatting just a bit in the back. Should I go for Airbags?

I think it looks ok. Hard to tell from that angle but maybe the 5th is a little nose high?
I have air bags and don't use them, I think I get a nicer ride with the weight on the springs.

I wouldn't bother with airbags with that trailer and a 3500. I agree, from this angle looks like the trailer is sitting a little nose high and maybe the hitch can be adjusted down. How much space between the bed rails and trailer?

The bed is OEM ready for a hitch, but I am using the aftermarket frame so that I can use my super glide So the rails addd 3 inches to the super glide hight. I'll talk to dealer about any adjustment on the pin box

Thanks

What happened to the picture? Is my computer going bonkers? Or am I persona-non-grata on the forum?

I have air bags on my Ram 3500 SRW and am glad I have them. Truck doesn't necessarily need them, but it sure takes the porpoising effect out of the ride, especially over bridge gaps. Really calms it down. I usually only run them at 35 psi.

Nice set up you have there.

I see it now! I can see...I can see! Looks good to me. I guess you'll know if you want air bags the first time you go over a large bump and the leaf springs bottom out. Otherwise, forgetaboutit.
