    I have a 2008 Tacoma access cab 4x4 w/ the TRD Off Road kit, sitting on 4 265/70-15 KO2 tires... I'm going to use this to tow a Casita 16' trailer (max weight 3500 lbs, 350 tongue), and even towing it home light (2200 lbs curb weight), the truck and trailer was bucking on road bumps and stuff. I know I need a weight distribution hitch, will likely be getting this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0024E6XBA

    but I'm also at times going to be carrying pretty much max weight in the back of the taco, and I'm thinking I need either overload springs, or an airbag kit like

    wondering what'yall suggest. I don't want to lift the truck, I don't want to do serious baja offroading, although I do want to do some easy 4x4'ing of the sort this truck is ready for as-delivered, but not concurrently with towing or hauling.
