Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch And Air Springs Recommendation For 2006 Dodge 3500 Truck


I will be getting a 2006 Dodge dually 4x4 in the near future. I will install a turnover ball gooseneck hitch and air bag helpers. Dodge Ram 3500 8' bed dual wheel. Which brands of these products are compatible with each other?

I do have a couple of recommendations for you that will work for your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually.

I recommend the B and W Gooseneck, part # BWGNRK1313. This is a 30,000 lb gooseneck hitch with a turnoverball, and a custom installation kit. The ball can be inserted into the hitch upside down when you are not towing, giving you more bed access. I have attached an installation video you can check out.

The suspension system I recommend for your Ram is the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2299. the load-leveling capacity for this system is 5,000 lbs. This system is intended to help level the load and absorb the shock to give you a smoother ride. This system will not increase the weight capacity of your truck. The adjustable air pressure is 5 to 100 psi. I have attached a link to an installation video for this suspension system you may want to take a look at.

To be able to control the air pressure in your springs from the comfort of your truck cab I recommend the Firestone Dual Electric Air Command, part # F2178. This allows you to control the pressure in the air bags independently with a switch, and has a dual-gauge control panel that mounts under the dashboard in your truck cab.
