The installation paper for mine stated the bags supports 50 pounds per pound of pressure. So I keep mine at 12 pounds to take 600 pounds of the spring and still have some springs and shocks actions.

Are guys quoting pressures before the trailer is hooked up?

Hey 3/4ton drivers: What's your airbag PSI?

Then I'm between 50 - 70 psi 2200# pin
Haven't looked to see what un hitched psi is.

I have a different truck now and don't run bags, but when I had my F250 CC V10 4x4 and my Saber 34TBOK with approx 2500lb pin weight, I ran about 55psi loaded. Had them as high as 60 and as low as 30 while towing. Empty I'd shoot for 10-12psi.

I have the 2007.5 Dodge 2500 with Air Lift bags pulling a Wildcat 327re with about 1600 pound tongue weight unloaded. I have played around with the pressure a little and I have found that about 28 to 30 pounds gives me the best ride on rough roads. I leave it around 10 unloaded.

Not a 3/4T, but 15# empty and 50#-60# with 5er depending on road. Have gone as high as 75# once or twice.

2007.5 Ram 2500...Airlift bags on rear. Wildcat 327RE...I run 10 psi empty and 28 to 30 loaded just to soften the ride. Really makes a difference.
