I like the airbags Walrus.

I have an airbag in my passenger seat. Been there 19 years.

Under the back seat, there is a shelf back there it sits on. I showed that to Walrus yesterday.

Re: Looking to add air bags. Air lift or Firestone?

I went with the Air Lift Bags on my Titan - and am very happy with the results. Install was easy and running the tubing to fill them out to the licence plate frame makes for fast and simple checking and adjustments. Hope this helps you.

I can tell you this: It rides nicely. Crappy freeway pavement is not what it used to be.

I have the airlift bags, board compressor, and gauge inside the center console. I towed 2 cords of wood even with the bed full. Truck towed fine and didn't even flinch. If anyone is interested I have pics of my install. Let me know.

Re: Looking to add air bags. Air lift or Firestone?

Gotta tell you folks: I put about 400 loaded miles on last week and never hit the bump stops.

My rebate came in the mail too!
