Air Bags???

I just went from an F250 / Cyclone 3010 combo to a 2012 Ram 3500 DRW / Voltage 3600. The F250 required air bags as there was no getting away from it. My question is does anyone have this or a similar set up and did you need to add the air bags to the Ram 3500? I just got both and I am in the process of getting a hitch bought and installed so I haven't hooked it up yet. I would like to order the bags with the hitch if needed. Thank you in advance for your help.

With an '08 F250 pulling a Torque 321 I had a 3 to 4 inch sag and HAD to have airbags...
My F350 DRW only sagged an inch or two hooked up to the Voltage 3895. I didn't feel like the airbags were required but I added them anyhow.

I had a 2" sag. Didnt want airbags so went with the Timbren System. Sag is eliminated with a more stable ride. Actuall had to lower the nose of trailer slightly for a level ride. Cost less than $200 and took me 20 minutes to install.

I went with bags on my 3500 and am very happy - removed all but three leafs in the process and have the remote wireless controller.

I have a 2013 F350 and tried to put Firestone Bags on it. The passenger side installed fine but the driver side would not fit because of the DEF tank bracket was totally in the way.

I installed Timbrens and they are working well for me.
