Best Air Bags & Compressor For 2013 Ford F-250 Towing Trailer


Hello, Looking to add rear airbags to my 2013 Ford F250 with a compressor to better support towing of a travel trailer. I have a one inch lift on the rear. Could you help point me in the right direction for what I need ? Thanks

Yes, we can get your 2013 Ford F-250 set up with air bags and a compressor to give it the best possible support for when you are towing your trailer. A one inch lift won't require the use of any spacers (in fact, the smallest spacer is 1-1/4"), and the best options for air bags are from Firestone, with the correct fit for your F-250 being the following:

- Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2597

The Ride-Rite air bags are easily the best because they are the most well-constructed air bags available; they are made with four layers of reinforced rubber, which is a thicker, more reliable construction than other air bags that are made with just two layers of rubber. The quality of their build means not only are they going to provide your F-250 with the best support, they are also the most dependable air bags you can get.

During the installation of these air bags, you are going to want to ensure your air lines are cut perfectly straight, and the best way to do this is by using the Air Hose Cutter # AL10530. To connect the air lines you'll also need Union Tee # AL21838.

As for a compatible compressor, the most convenient option to pair with the Ride-Rite air bags is a wireless one so you won't have to have lines run up into the cab of your F-250 The best option for this is the Air Command Compressor System w/ Light Duty Compressor - Wireless # F2610.

You can mount this compressor to your F-250 without drilling by using the No-Drill Mount Kit # F2612.
