Every once in awhile I save a little extra to spend on my truck.I have been thinking of a couple more mods and would like a little input. I have a 1 ton but feel it is still a little lacking in the rear springs.I was thinking of airbags, a hellwig bar and bilstiens.What would you order first?

BTW I found a new supplier that will match or do better on any price out there, Len-Rich RV supply

I put on some of the most primo shocks i could find. Expensive and good.
I should have just donated that money to Mother Theresa instead.

I then paid a couple hundred lousy bucks for airbags. Worth their weight in gold. Easy to install. Makes a lot of difference in towing. I let out the air for when i drive around town empty, and fill 'em up for when i have 14,000 pounds on the hitch.
That would be my choice at any rate.

Firestone ride rites were my first mod after my toy box purchase.Truck ride difference nite and day. After several other projects I installed the compressor with the incab dual pressure adjustment. I used one side for the rear truck bags and the other for my air ride hitch works great. An easy install just I would not try and run/hide the coiled air hose myself again under the truck it was a little tuff, it coiled after every cross member and obstacle.Money well spent for the bags.The compressor is a luxury my home research and development department slipped in on the accounting and acquisition department. One for R&D. Keep dust on ya boot.

Get some Rancho adjustable shocks. These are great for towing and then can be adjusted when empty.
Or get a set of Timbren overloads. Easy to install, guaranteed for lifetime, do not work until load is applied.
I have both. I used to tow heavy and now I just "carry" a Lance 1130.
Great stability and ride.

Err...Mikey: Mom Theresa is 6 feet under...hard to get any dough to her!!!

I second Chet's suggestion...I had Rancho RS9000X's on my old F250, and they worked absolutely great for towing...just don't try to get the remote kit to adjust them from inside the cab- there isn't a dealer out there that will install it because they all say it's junk.

I'll be putting them on my new F350KR here shortly...
