Air Bags That Work with 5th Wheel Hitch on 2017 Ford F-150


Planning on putting RP56034-53 hitch in 2017 F150..but I want air bags also..which air bag system will work??


Expert Reply:

The air bag system that will work with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP56034-53 on your 2017 Ford F-150 are the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs # AL57385 because as you can see by the accompanying photo these air bags mount under the frame of the truck to avoid interference with the brackets of the base rail kit.

The Air Lift # AL57385 can be adjusted individually from 5 psi to 100 psi to help compensate for off-center loads and have a 5,000 lb load-leveling capacity. These air bags are going to improve your F-150's handling and reduce tire wear by helping keep your front tires on the ground and will benefit your truck's rear suspension by preventing sagging.

I also strongly recommend installing the Air Lift WirelessONE Compressor System # AL25980 with the helper springs because it has a wireless remote control which allows you to adjust the air pressure in each bag from the comfort of your truck's cab. This system also has the ability to maintain a pre-set air pressure if you find that perfect setting that gets your truck level. I have added a link to a video of this system being installed for you to check out.
