They work great. I put a set on my 2011 last year. I have a Leer shell and tow a Casita 17SD. I usually carry quite a bit of work related stuff in the Toyota, saws, rigging, lots of gas and oil in 5 gallon cans and other misc. heavy stuff.
I usually stay in the woods all week while I'm working so the trailer leaves home with a full water tank and lots of groceries.
I've never weighed it...kinda scared to...but it's a big load. The most air I've ever put in the bags to level the back of the pickup was 25 lbs. That's with the Casita hooked on. The bags don't seem to add any sway for feeling of back-end "walk". They're very stable.
I had the rear spring tsb done....mostly because it was free...but I really think that the air bags make it unnecessary. I installed them myself and the only major problem was cutting the bump stops off with a damn dull hack saw...I should have known better.
