    I'm running with a permanent minimum payload of over 1K;
    Me; 210, Decked Drawers: 210, Snugtop: 200, Transfer 46g tank: 100, Sliders:100, winch and mount: 140, wife: not saying, miscellaneous tools: 100.
    I figure the suspension is always about 50% compressed. I absolutely love the Pro ride. Smoothest I've ever experienced and I've had a lot of trucks. Most all of them would only run smooth with some serious weight. I suspect an add-a-leaf would help bring things back close to stock. Possibly the Deavers are the best choice. I'm towing a 5k trailer occasionally and get the squat mostly fixed w/WDH. I would appreciate some feedback from tundra brothers that have some solid suspension knowledge. If you're going to make a recommendation please explain why you feel it's the best decision. Thanks!

    Thanks for that, I've never had air bags but I thought they would be useful mostly while towing and have the occasional heavy load. If I had bags, and ran 'em aired up all the time, wouldn't that destroy the sweet cushy Pro ride? Am thinking they're a good addition for when I tow but not sure they relieve the day to day problem of running with the constant load. Please 'splain why airbags are the best solution.
