gonna get firestone ride rite kit

my question is how will it look getting a 3 inch lift kit on top of getting these bags? i would get the block kit for the rear since adding a leaf would make the ride way too stiff with bags. so anyone running this setup or have any input?

I have an AAL lift in rear with firestone airbags. My front is lifted with Toytec ultimate lift.
The bags only add lift to the rear with About 10 lbs or more of air pressure. I run about 3-5 lbs with no load which won't give much lift if any at all.

If you run 10+ without a load, your shocks won't do anything.... Only riding on a very stiff air bag which made my truck buck like a mad bronco!!!

So what I'm saying is don't count on using the air bags to achieve much lift.... Only to prevent sag.
