Advice on Timbrens

I had the firestone airbags, but over this nasty winter, I spaced out checking and blew them out from low air. So, either I can replace or get timbrens. Reason I may go this route is:

1) Never needed more than 10 to 15 psi to level.
2) Hoping to get new TV within a year (keeping the Libby though)
3) I tossed out the stock bump stops, so I need some anyways
4) No maintenance involved

Any hints or advice, that would be great.

I used Timbrens on my Ram 1500 and I was quite happy with the ease of installation and maintenance free aspect. It helped with truck swag and also provided a fairly stable ride. i upgraded my truck to a Ford F250 and added Airlift 5000 airbags. The cost was twice as much with about 5 times the difficulty and length of time to install. The airbags also helped with truck swag and also provided a fairly stable ride. I think if I was going to do it again, I would use Timbrens. You get the same result with less expense. At least I did.

Thank you. I may just order them. I notice the tow wasn't as good without the air bags. Maybe because the Reese DC was out of adjustment due to the slightly more squat.
