Which Air Bag Suspension Enhancement Kit Fits 2016 Ford F-150 That Can Also Fit 5th Wheel Rail Kit

Question:

I have Firestone air bags installed on my 2016 Ford F150 Super Crew 5 1/2 bed truck. Will there be a problem with the air bag brackets being in the way of fitting up the quick install brackets?

Air Lift makes air bag suspension enhancement that fits your 2016 Ford F-150 short bed with the part # AL57268 and allows an in-bed rail kit/hitch to fit like the Curt # C16442-204 you referenced but the Firestone kit you have now will not work since it installs on the wrong side of the frame rails.

Question:

The reason I ask about this was that from looking at the Curt brackets it wasn’t too hopeful that they would work with Firestone brackets. Now that we’ve established this, Is there another brand that have brackets that will work with the Firestones? Will the Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit # HT32858-686 work?

If you went with a universal style rail kit that uses L-brackets like the # RP30035-31 you'd have the brackets of the rail kit far enough outside of where the Firestone brackets are located that the two would be compatible.
