    I think I have the Firestone bags. 300 or so but I didn't do onboard air. Probably would if I did it again

    I had air bags on my last 3 trucks but this time I am going to go with Roadmaster Active Suspension.

    With up to 40% over load I shouldn't get any squat.
    I've been waiting for a friend with an almost exact same truck but a 21 Malibu to install his so I can compare. The more and more I research on this system though the more and more I like it.

    Here are a couple of old threads on this topic. Most of us love them.

    What do you like about it?
    You really think it's better than air bags?

    For one you are sopposed to have better handling when loaded.
    It also helps with axle wrap and wheel hopping under heavy acceleration. Air bags dont help this.
    When your unloaded you have a quality factory style ride. Air bags will always make the rear end feel slightly harder over bumps
    When I load the boat and truck I don't have to adjust the RAS. Its a set it and forget it system.

    Not that I don't like air bags, as I do, just want something I don't have to fool with.

    Thanks for all of the details guys, sorry to hijack the thread though!

    Anyone with experience on weight distributing hitches?

    I've read on the f150 forums that it lifts the back 1" but don't see any mention of this on any you tube videos or on the RAS website. What's Vince say?
    And did he measure drop from his boat before and after install?

    Your truck shows the drop more since you did the leveling kit, mine sits so ass high it would probably be close to level with my boat. Just trying to get an idea about this RAS before I pull the trigger on bags.
    My plan now is to do a lift, put an add-a-leaf in the back along with blocks and add bags so I can level it no matter how much weight I have. I just want it level lol!

    Vince is who I'm waiting on but hes waiting for good weather on a Saturday. That could be months here LOL.

    Yes I think my leveling kit in the front makes the back look much more saggy then it really is.
    Only thing I have read from the <Chevy forum> was it raised a guys truck 1/2 inch but after a few hundred miles it rested to 1/4 inch. He was concerned because he lowered his truck and this was raising it slightly.

    Vince said he gets a 2inch drop on his truck with the boat. This makes since as I know the Mojo is more nose heavy then his boat.
