Now to travel trailers moving up from pop ups. Added Timbrens to my 2014 F-150 super crew and I am super happy with how the truck handles now. No experience with the other systems.

But to the original question I am partial to timbrens. I had them on 3 trucks now. I always look at cost/benefit and the possibility for failure. Timbrens have really no parts that can fail.
Ok...GAWR on rear axle on my is 2012 GMC 2500HD diesel is listed at 6200 lbs.....on a 2012 GMC 3500HD diesel, I believe, it's listed at 7050 lbs....the reason for the extra 850 lbs is in the leaf springs, i.e. more springs?...No other differences in the two trucks? Is it possible to change out the leaf springs on a 2500HD to a set of leaf springs from a 3500HD and gain that extra 850lbs?
