Upgrading Suspension of 2015 Open Range 3X427BHS


I have a 2015 Open Range 3X427BHS. GVWR 14,000 lbs and hitch weight 2300 lbs. Currently has 7000 lb dual axles at 33inch spacing. Id like to upgrade to the Moryde SRE4000, X-factor cross members, wet bolt and shackle kit, new leaf springs, shock absorbers. Can you help me out? What all do I need to purchase? Do you have everything I need? Also, I currently use the Andersen hitch to pull with. Can I upgrade to an Air Ride pin box? What do you recommend?

Since your 2015 Open Range 3X427BHS has 7k axles that are spaced 33 inches apart the MORryde SRE4000 that you mentioned part # MR97ZR would work great. This comes with the X-factor brace as well.

Or if you wanted to go a slightly different route that has everything you'd need the Roadmaster Comfort Ride part # RM-2460-2570 which replaces the suspension, comes with shocks, and an equalizer system. This setup would not let you use the SRE4000 though.

But just the shock kit of this part # RM-2460 can work with the SRE4000 so to go that route you'd have to source leaf springs somewhere else since we don't carry any for a 7k axle.

To pick out a cushioned pin box I would need to know what model pin box your fifth wheel has currently.
