We never plan on towing a larger trailer. If we do, we'll get an F-250.

More than enough.

The on board compressor can be added later if you don't like filling manually. I think the compressor is the way to go if you have extra cash.

I used the road master active suspension. After my rear leaf springs started to squeak like a school bus, I tried greasing them, etc. I finally took them off and my squeak problem stopped. I won't use RMAS again.

I think you will be fine with the 2000 bags.

AS said before, Im a Timbren kind of guy myself. Once installed, you have nothing to mess with. No keeping up with air pressure, trying to find slow leaks, or worrying about puncturing a bag or damaging a line. A newer truck, you wont notice the Timbrens with no load, its only once load is applied you tell the differance.

I'm a Timbren guy also. Set it and forget is my motto. I've got enough things to do than install something that will add to my work or reduce my pocketbook. I had them on another truck.

Do the trimbrens help eliminate bouncing when towing?

I have them with an onboard air compressor on an 07 Sequoia and they help with the weight distribution hitch to leaves out the SUV it was my only option since I do not have leaf springs. Nice to be able to let the air out once we get to the destination the air back up to tow again.

I'm leaning toward the Timbrens. Much easier install and the set it and forget it aspect is very appealing.

I had both and prefer the Timbrens. I did not have the compressor on my old airbags and spent way to much time adjusting pressure from towing to not towing. The on-board compressor is a expensive addition.
