Air Bags On F350, Yes or No

Just got a new TV, 2014 Ford F350 with a haul weight of 3460, we have a CC 36RE, 15,000 / pin weight around 2,500 to 3,000 loaded. That does not leave a lot if I am looking at this right.
Question is should I add air bags to level out TV? Know it does not increase my haul level at all, just wondering about leveling TV.
Anyone have them on there F350?

Don't have any experience with them on the truck, but watching this thread to see who does and what the results are. I've never saw the need for them, but, some do. Our truck squats a fair amount with the QB4 (Pin weight around 2600), but not enough for me to panic figuring out how to level it. It'd have to be a drastic improvement in ride for me to add them, but then again, I already have an onboard compressor for other stuff, so it'd be an easy addition.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Yes..I have them on my dually! I've had them on 2 of my 3 duallies and would prefer not to tow heavy without them again. My pin weight is around 3100 pounds, well within the F350 DRW capabilities, but it smooths out the ride especially on badly maintained interstates. Plus I keep the truck perfectly level with them. I also have an onboard Viair air system that enables me to adjust on the fly. They are well worth it in my opinion.

X2Here! My vengeance 39r12 5er is 13k empty 18k gross. I pulled the camper home from dealer, about 40 miles without them and all was fine. First trip out, we were pretty heavily loaded, and the squat was just barely enough to be noticeable. It still pulled well on the 500 mile trip. I put Air Ride bags on the rear, and inflated to 55 lbs to level it out for the next trip, and the ride is much improved.

Worth it ? I certainly think so.
