And if you suggest to order online, shipping and duty charges will not make it worthwhile. Also, I think Timbrens is a Canadian product and I bet they are cheaper in the US as well. We do have Mayor Rob Ford though.
Come to the rally in goshen next year and I'll sell you a set !

Timbren, I highly recommend them, they are one my 2010 F250 without any problems. I like that they don't come into play until you load it. Also they are a piece of cake to install, just remove the stock rubber stops and install these in the same spot.

Anyone who has a 2011+ Super Duty knows that Ford took out a leaf in the rear to accommodate the yuppies with tender hind parts, so sag on these model years is a problem. I have had over 4000 lbs in the bed of my 2011 F250 and the Timbrens stopped the sag and controlled the load. If you load your truck to the point where it continues to sag after hitting the Timbrens, there is something terribly wrong with your truck, Timbrens, or you are fantastically over loaded. For more money, airbags do the same thing with the added convenience of adjustability.

“I still say that you should not have a sag with either system in use.”

This is true of airbags, not Timbrens. In order for the Timbrens to function as intended there is roughly and 1 1/2” gap between the Timbren itself and the bump stop perch. Ask anyone who has ordered the wrong size Timbrens about how it feels always riding on them, it sucks big time, very harsh. This is not how they were designed to work, it is in fact how airbags were designed to work, always on. The 1 1/2” gap allows for normal suspension travel without hitting the Timbren.
Wow, I never knew they took out a leaf on the 2011 and up. Glad I have a 2010.

Obviously a kink in the rule of thumb that things are cheaper in the US. I can get them here for $199. Still holding water.

In regard to pricing; the bags alone are comparable. If you add the compressor kit for on demand adjusting it more than doubles the price.

The bags: https://www.etrailer.com/Vehicle-Sus...cleid=20112702

The compressor kit: https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...one/F2097.html

Edit...I got my Timbrens from e-trailer for $199
