I love my airbags and onboard air system. They help keep the rig level, although it didn't need much help in that regard. The headlights are like driving normally, but I love having air to air up floats, tires etc wherever the truck is. I also like the fact that I can adjust on the fly and take some of the 'jolt' out of some of the interstate expansion joints.

Hey guys

What does everyone have for pin boxes? I have a SRW F350 Long Bed with no airbags. I have a 2013 365saq. I find the ride very nice towing. I do have the Trail Air Rotoflex pin box which was installed at the factory. Although not a higher dollar air bag box it does the job well. My good friend, and very experienced 5th wheel tower, rode with me on the 450 mile round trip to my dealer to get my axles done recently and commented on how smooth the tow was and how you'd barely know the camper was back there. He has a 3500 single with Firestone bags installed for his 40' 5er with a standard pin box. I have no doubt the bags would make things even better again but just curious about the pin boxes.

I have the Trail Air Rotoflex on mine as well and I think it rides pretty good. Not sure if its the pinbox or not, but I'm sure it can't hurt.

I'm not sure if it's a Ford thing or not, but I really didn't care for the air bags on my '11 2500 Chevy. I thought the ride was bouncy and anything more than 35 pounds would raise it and make the ride harsh. They did help some on the hard bounce of a bridge approach, but under normal driving conditions I didn't care for them. I definitely don't need them on the 3500. Neither truck was squatted in the rear when hooked up, both dropped less than 2".
