    Found this kit from Torque....seems to be a Firestone kit clone and it’s $100 less expensive than the Firestone kit. Anyone try it out yet for feedback? It’s shipped from Amazon so I figure if it sucks....I could return it but looks like the same exact kit to me.....

    I love a good deal, but at that price difference, and the PITA to remove if I don't like it, I am going with Firestone and be done.

    I am running Summit Racing’s airbag kit which is the Torque kit you are showing. I had fiestones on my 08 and build quality is close enough that I cant tell the difference between the airbags. I have 5k and a cross country trip on the Summit/Torque kit with no issues while carrying a 1k lb cabover camper.

    50% chance they come out of the same factory as firestone

    kparrow, what did you decide? Did you go with the 'Torque' bags? I am about to "Add to Cart" myself. The reviews look good with the exception of some of the bolts missing or wrong but... the customer service seems to be legit with making things right quickly!

    I saw these when searching for a kit, very interested in seeing how they work out for you.

    I've been running this kit for a year or two with no issues. The only problem I has is they sent the wrong airbags in the kit, but I called them and they shipped the correct ones that day. I recommend checking that you got all the correct parts before you go tearing into your truck just in case.

    Received the Torque bags yesterday. Did an inventory of all the items. All good with the exception of a broken zip Tie (no Biggie) and they state in the directions that there should be two (2) fuel pump extension brackets but only came with one. Again no biggie...just a typo because it seems you only need one for install. Quality wise they seem great...no different than other products I have had in the past. I'll update after install!

    I ended up going with a Firestone kit. NIB local for $200, couldn’t pass it up
