Recomended Rear Air Bags for 2019 Ram 2500 for Towing 5th Wheel Trailer


Hey there. Have a 2019 Ram 2500 that I use to tow my 5th wheel trailer. Looking for rear air bags to help with support. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

For your 2019 Ram 2500 I highly recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Air Helper Springs # F2706.

These air springs are confirmed to fit the rear axle of your Ram and are compatible with the frame brackets from 5th wheel hitch base rails. These feature a robust 7,500 pound weight capacity that will work great to support the pin weight from your trailer or the weight of any cargo you might have loaded into the bed when you aren't towing. The adjustability of the springs allow for a smooth ride regardless of what you're pulling or carrying.

All of the needed hardware for installation is included. I have attached an installation video on the 2017 Ram 2500 that you can use for reference.

I do also recommend considering adding a compressor kit like the Firestone Air Command II # F2219. Installing this will prevent you from having to track down a compressor when you need to add air to the springs and allow you to adjust the air pressure from inside the comfort of your cab. This particular kit is a dual path system which means it will let you adjust air bags individually to help with off center loads.
