Does Adding An Air Bag Kit Increase My Towing Capacity?  


Can I raise my payload capacity with an air bag so I can tow a fifth wheel. I have the engine, transmission and axle, but I limited by weight on my payload. I have a 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab with setup option for max rv towing. See photo below…

No, you can not raise your payload capacity by adding an air bag kit. Although adding an air bag kit like the Air lift # AL88388 will go a long way to support your trucks suspension and keep you level when towing, it will not increase your weight carrying capacity. You will still be limited my the manufacturers recommended weight limit. Unfortunately there really is not a way to increase your towing capacity with any kind of aftermarket add-on.
