Pin Box upgrade question

We recently purchased a Columbus 386fk and it has a flexair lippert pin box. We would like to upgrade that to an air ride pin box. Has anyone else made this upgrade? If so, which one was the right one?

Thanks

Jason

Why? This is all ready a air ride pin box with an air bladder and shock absorb installed along with a pivoting head.


I have added a link so you can see how this works. https://www.lci1.com/flex-air-pin-box ,watch the video at the bottom of the link.

Agreed. You have what some would upgrade *to*.

Though, I switched to an air ride hitch- TrailerSaver TS3 and I absolutely love it. Better ride than any combination Iíve had before.

Perhaps I misprinted the pin box I have. Mine only has a pivoting head. It is without the air bladder and shock absorber. Thatís what Iím looking at upgrading to.

Thank you for the replies.

I have one of the flex air with cushion. It made a world of difference on the trip. 5th wheel totaled and kept the pin box. PM if interested.

Tap the member's avatar or member name. That should bring up the member's profile page on which you should see an orange (on mine) block which says "MESSAGE". Click that.

Well... I'm out then. On mine I have a blue FOLLOW block and an orange MESSAGE block on the line between the member name and the FOLLOWERS / POSTS line.
You either have Tapatalk settings that prevent that line from displaying OR the member you want to PM has set profile options to prevent these options from being available.
Take a look at my profile. What do you see there?
