The air bags only raise the ride height of the rear of the truck...it doesn't transfer some of the tongue weight to the front axle (and to the trailer axles). The front axle weight should close to the same hitched up or unhitched...can't do that without W/D bars. The sway bars are for more than windy days. What about an emergency lane change for example?

After a couple thousand miles I realized that the sway bars are a real pain to install every time I hook up, so I installed Firestone air bags with a wireless controller, so now, I just hook up (without the sway bars) level the truck with a touch of a bottom (unloaded I run 10psi, leveled up and the bed loaded with generator etc. I air up to 30 or 40psi). I found that I can now tow up to 75mph (passing, usually cruise at 65-68mph) without the load leveling anti sway bars.
You're not serious right? 75 MPH with no weight distribution or sway control
