With my camper on my CC really squats. I want to put on some airbags and it seems there are two major choices the firestone airbags and the LoadLifter 5000. For some reason the LoadLifter 7500XL won't work with diesels. Anyone have experience with either system. Pros and cons of each?

I had the Firestones on my two previous trucks and never had any issues. They were on my 2011 for 7 years before the engine crapped on me. Can't speak for the Airlift, though I did have their 72000 Wireless Compressor, which I love. I had to get a new compressor once in those 7 years, but otherwise no problem. So far, I don't need the bags on this new truck, but I've only been out camping once. Still need to get a couple of more trips to say for sure.

I have Firestone's on my truck and love them. I didn't get the compressor at first. *big mistake) Now I have the onboard compressor. I thought about the wireless one but then you would have another remote. I mounted the gauge switch to the lower left side by the door. Not to many places to mount the gauge but after looking foe a few hours I decided on a place.
I was going to post pictures but cant find them. Mine is a 15

Air Lift has a lifetime warranty. There are models with and without in bed hitches but I’ve never heard of a diesel version vs. gas.

Ya weird from their website

"Does not fit 2018-2019 diesel models. Will fit ALL models without a fifth-wheel hitch and will also fit most side mount fifth wheel hitch applications. Does not fit cab & chassis applications. Fits factory in-bed hitch system."

I added the bags after I installed the B&W hitch. Bad news is I had to loosen the side plates because there is one bolt that went under the plate.Then I had to re-torque the dolts again.
Air bags have been under there for 3 years now and I love them. Helps with the ride quality. I run 20# unloaded and loaded 60#
