As some of you might remember from some of my old posts that last April after I picked up the Redwood, my wife insisted on me getting a new dually so she felt safer. This really broke my heart but being the good husband that I am...........I did what was requested for her safety. I now love the truck but my wife has complained about the ride both while pulling the trailer and empty. The ride did improve after adding the load helper air bags but not good enough.

Now we're planing on making several business trips between now and the end of May totaling about 11,000 miles and then vacation after that. Ginny is a good sport but she's kind of worried about the jarring over those 11,000 miles. She has requested that I take the truck to the "Kilderman" factory and have the air-ride put on the front and back of the truck giving the "Beast" total air-ride. So next week we'll pull the trailer over to the Kilderman factory and park it in their lot while they give the "Beast" a new attitude. After we get back from "Kilderman" we'll decide if we need the "Tri-glide" pin box.

I guess it pays to hit every bump you can find and being an accommodating husband.

I will John, I'm getting the 2 stage in the rear instead of the 4 link. The 4 link is the best and most costly but the money I'm saving on the rear I'm putting toward the front and Tri-glide pin box. Beside I already have helper bags in the back so I don't need the extra lifting that the 4 link system gives.

I hope it all works as well as I think it will.

mmmmmm I wonder how I can get my wife to not like the seats? I know they have some nice stuff but I think I'll have to wait for that.

The 2 stage system and the front air ride, will cost about $4500 plus tax installed. I think just the back is around $2500 installed. They said that they have a large lot for me to park in and they have electrical hook ups. They want to install the system in just about 4-5 hours but they want me to spend the night to check for air leaks.
