madjack wrote:Danny, think of them in two categories...air shocks and air springs...the air lifts you are linking to are air bags that replace or supplement the springs(air springs)...most of the rest of us are talking about air shocks that replace existing shock absorbers and are generally aired up manually as needed without a permanently installed compressor (at least the Monroes on my old PU were that way)...

It's a insulated 5'x10' Li’l Bear clone of sorts with a tongue box. I had it weighed at 2 different yards with quite a difference in tallies. On the axle it is 1200# and I think it's somewhere around 1500# to 1600# total. I have no problems towing it and my gas mileage dropped down to city driving and that was on back roads with hills. My guess is I should get around 18 mpg on the interstates. Danny

I'm figuring it's there to prevent my suspension from bottoming out. Would this be replaced with the air bag? If so it looks simple to do . Danny[/color]
