In my old '15 Silverado, I had Firestone Ride Rite bags and Air Lift wireless one. So you can mix and match.
Just ordered a set of new bags for my '16 (Amazon), and received the Air Lift wireless one yesterday (Amazon).
Biggest problem I had with the install is locating a good place to install the compressor to keep it, somewhat, out of the elements.
I also DO NOT install the wire from the compressor directly to a 15A ign circuit fuse. I install another relay that is switched via the ignition circuit, but the voltage for the compressor comes directly off the battery.

Thanks for your input.....we bought them on we are trying to figure out the right amount of air for a smooth ride. Trial and error I guess.

I had airbags on my last truck. I just put a set of Timbrens on this one. No air to mess with. I don't notice them when empty and they seem to firm up my ride when I'm towing just the right amount. Took all of 15 minutes to install. Some don't like them but I think they're if I don't like them they will take them back..

I installed air bags to improve ride quality.

Before air bags the truck would rest on the overload springs causing a rough, jarring ride. Rolling bumps were not uncomfortable, but uneven expansion joints and sharp bumps would shake your innards!

After installing air bags and inflating to 55 psi the ride has improve tremendously. The truck no longer rest on the rough leaf overloads but instead the weight is carried by the air bags.

The ride is night and day different. After installing the bags, I do not want to drive without them.
