I got a set of firestone Ride Rite air bags in exchange for a few loads of firewood. Thought I'd share some pics. I really like these bags and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. Cant wait to get a real good load on the truck and trailer.

Those are really nice. I know the ride must have improved, hows the weight handling?

Very nice. I have been thinking about adding the firestone bags to our truck. When we get a full load of garden tractors on the trailer it does squat the truck pretty good and it would be nice to put more stuff in the bed of the truck but we don't due to the squatting.

That's a great idea! Did the brackets come with them, or are they something you have to buy separately?

They came with them. I had to drill 4 holes on each side. I dont think you have to do that if you buy the ones specific for your brand, but I got these from a buddy of mine that had them on a Dodge.
