    Anyone on here installed these on a Tacoma and want to provide some feedback?

    I tow a fair amount (4K-5K lbs) but I want to avoid airbags on this truck since I also off-road any chance I get.

    Also I'm running the OME Dakar leaf springs

    I have the same question. Anyone have experience with these?

    Hate to bump an old thread, but did either of you go the stableload route?

    I did not. In the long run, I decided the popup camper I had on the truck was just too heavy for it, even with airbags and an OME heavy duty suspension upgrade. Most of the time it was fine, but the sway in strong winds was unnerving. Instead of piling on more upgrades, I ended up selling the camper and going with a topper instead.

    Good to know. I added sumo springs and it helped with the truck/trailer porpoising for sure but there's still some "floating" feeling when on flat highways towing at freeway speeds (never more than 65.) I find the truck has plenty of power and stopping ability and there's very little if any sway coming from the trailer, but I feel like the truck can do better.

    That is really interesting. Actually engaging the overloads before hitting the bump stops seems like a good idea.

    I had timbren SES bumpstops (or whatever they’re called) on Dakar leaf pack and the Tacoma handled my slide-in camper beautifully. Great ride. No swaying in cross-winds.

    I had airbags in the past. Didn’t like them. Haven’t tried these quick-connect rigs.

    On my f350 I swapped out the stock rear sway bay with an upgraded extremely heavy one. That’s another great option if your camper sways in the wind.

    The real problem is improving towing without taking a huge hit to off road ability. Airbags always bugged me because for all the compression help they give there isn't any increase in rebound damping so they can induce their own problems.

    That’s why I love the timbrens. They compress and have a firm squishy feel like you’re squeezing a foam stress ball. They don’t store energy like airbags the more they compress, so they don’t get bouncy. I find airbags have a sharp rebound. Timbrens gradually compress then decompress if weight is removed.

    Interesting about the air bags. I used those to level my camper. Maybe that was part of the problem.
