    6" Procomp Stage 1 Lift. 35's, and a GoRhino Bumper
    New to the forum, Im sorry if this has been asked a bajillion times. I tried a search, and didnt find what I was looking for...

    I have a 6" procomp stage 1 lift on my truck.

    We just bought some property, and more than likely I will have to start towing regularly to transport tractors/building supplies/dirt... the normal stuff you would do on acreage.

    I REALLY dont want to trade in my truck for a diesel. I've had them before, and just don't want to deal with the "diesel tax" for everything.

    I know the basics, like getting a good stiff compound tire, and a WDH. But this truck sags BAD in the rear with any kind of weight on the hitch or in the bed. And I'm a little worried about axle wrap with those lift blocks in the rear. Should I just buy bags for the rear, and call it good? Or do I need to dump cubic cash on the rear suspension for an anti-wrap bar, and arched springs to eliminate the blocks?

    Bags. Cheap and super easy to install. Plus you can adjust them. If you offroad, get the airbag cradles.

    7 inch lift
    I have a 2018 with a 7 inch pro comp lift. I tow my boat every weekend easily with airbags and compressor. Like you said. My truck sagged bad when I would hook up my boat. Now. The bags fixed the problem.

    I wouldn’t want to be towing with tall blocks. I use shackles which I know won’t get you the height you need.

    I’ve got the icon expansion spring pack which I really dig.

    Air bags would be great

    That first pic looks like Lone Rock Beach to me, any difficulty towing over the sand there?
