Recommended Air Bags for Towing a 5th Wheel with a 2019 Ram 2500


I can't make up my mind on what air bags I should get for my 2019 Ram 2500. Can you help? I have a 5th wheel and need them for leveling.

The air bag help springs I recommend for a 2019 Ram 2500 are the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2706 which fit both 4x2 and 4x4 models. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs have a 7,500 lb weight capacity so they will hold up to anything you put them up against such as a heavy fifth wheel. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs are also a bolt-on option with no drilling required and there won't be any issues with a factory or aftermarket in-bed hitch. I personally like Firestone systems because they use a much more durable crimp rolled seal whereas others use a band clamp that does not hold up as well.

I have attached a sample install video on the air bags for you. If you will be using the air bags daily then you are also going to want an air compressor kit so you can make adjustments on the fly. The Air Command F3 Compressor System part # F2590 is what I recommend because the wireless design means you don't have to run any line or wires into the cab and the heavy-duty compressor will hold up much better than other lesser options.
