Air bags can help level the truck but WILL NOT add carrying capacity to the vehicle.

Carrying capacity between 250/2500 and 350/3500 is on paper only. Ford allows more spring travel on the 350 therefore it has higher setup and so does Ram. My 2500 had more spring capacity then my neighbour dually. Now figure. And his truck drops further then mine with his lighter and smaller 5th wheel.
My truck is an XL and his is a Lauriat.
