On my truck the rear won't sag/drop till I get somewhere around 3,000 lbs in the bed I'd guess, but I haven't found that spot yet. My front comes up but the rear don't drop. Oh the rear drops for a couple seconds but it just comes right back up. I thought about putting the timbrens on the rear in the event I find that weight that will make it drop. I'd never tow anything that would put more than my 2700 cargo wt on the truck anyway so I won't need them. LOL

So you just tow an empty trailer around. Most everyone is within their capacity with a dry trailer too, what does it do when you load it up?

For the cost difference between Timbrens and bags the bags win out every time. I've had Air Lift bags on 3 different pick ups and also on my Jeep Wrangler. With exception of the Jeep I had a on board compressor with them as well. Never had a leak and I passed on one system to my son to put on his truck so that bag system has been leak free since 2002.
I can't install them on my current 2015 RAM 2500 as it has the auto level. So this is the first truck I've had without Air Lift bags in quit a few years.
Pretty dependable product.
