That is good to hear thanks for the info... And I am with you better to be able to more than not especially when life, limb, or house is on the line lol! I'm looking forward to bagging my truck as I am always hauling heavy payloadsI just traded my 08 f150 for my 'boost. The '08 had 3.73 and a 6.5' box. I had the firestone ride rite airbags in it and loved them. I live in North Dakota and they were on the rig in temps from -45 to +100 degrees and for 3 years. It took a bit for the connections to stop leaking air (about 2 months). After they quit leaking they were great. The biggest benefit was seen when we had the flooding issues in Bismarck. I was able to run 80lbs in my tires (E-rated Yokahamas) and 80 lbs in the bags. Two of the super dutys on the block had 35 to 40 sand bags in the box and were squatted HARD! I had 60 to 65 sandbags in my half ton and wasnt squatted as hard. Both the super duties now have bags. I know for all the people out there that say I was over the payload.......yada...........yada. Well when your house is on the line you do what it takes. Great product in the bags, and damn I miss that truck. Wish I could have afforded em both.
Yake, I went the Roadmaster Active Suspension instead of air bags. I didn't want to have to mess with a pressure adjustments all the time. I still have not had a chance to really give the RAS a good test yet. Yes, I have traveled that strech of I-94 on my way to son's place near Minneapolis. I have only done it once while pulling the trailer and that was with my F-350 (prior to the Boostie) I don't remember it being any roughier than any other part of the highway.Guys, can you comment on any change / improvement in trailer bounce wiht the air rides? I am making another big pull to SD this summer and had a few stretches of concrete highway that really bounced bad due to harmonics. Wondering if the air rides can dampen that? Also would like to know how the air rides affect the ride quality when you are not loaded? How much pressure do you run in the bags without a trailer load?
If any of you are familiar with Hwy 29 between Wausau and Chippewa Falls WI that is about as bad of a bounce as I have ever dealt with. Also had a few bouncy spots on Hwy 94 between Menominie and St Paul.
