I have a 2011 F250 crewcab diesel that I just installed Airlift 5000 ultimate system with remote compressor plus an 5th airbourne king pin on our 2012 Silverback 31B. I love both. I liked the Airlift over the Firestone due to removal of bumper block to install, but the Airlift has a smaller bumper block inside airbag in case of pressure loss. Installation wasn't to bad installed myself in our driveway for both systems.

I have a 2012 F350 single rear wheel. I added air bags purely to bring back almost to pre trailer height. The week before Memorial Day weekend I had the Trail Air Tri Glide installed. I will have to say it was amazing. I think the combination. Of the airbags on the truck, tri glide and the Mor Ryde trailer suspension I'm all good to go. The only problem from adding the tri glide was it made the front of the 5th wheel sit higher and now I'm not level. I'm angled down to the rear. I think I'm going to get rid of the new Reese slider and replace it with the regular arms which will lower the front about 2". I have a short bed truck but have plenty of turning clearance.

Tri Glide was about $1800 installed but a huge difference. You look in your mirror and it appears the front of the trailer is just floating when going over bumps and over passes.

I have air bags on the truck to keep it level and a Hensley BD3 hitch. The BD3 has shocks and airbags. Going down the road I can watch the nose of the 5r floating up and down with the seems in the highway and bridges, can't hardly feel it in the truck. A very comfortable ride. The revolution pin box is a super addition to the Rockwood. Seems to respond a little quicker when backing. One more thing about the revolution, most of the time I can push it from side to side. If it has been in the hot sun I can't budge it. No problem hooking up.
