Is anybody running an air ride assist on there new truck? I’m thinking about putting one on our 2020 f250 super duty. Looking for pros and cons.

I have "Air Lift" on my 1500. They were easy to install.
But make sure you get the ones with an internal bump stop (as you remove the OEM ones during the initial).
Instructions state you must maintain a minimum 5 psi or you may damage the air bags.(a pain to remember)
Ones with the internal bump stop don't have thush5 waning!

I run the Airlift 72000 wireless ,and it automatically maintains whatever air pressure its set at , I do have the internal bump stops ,but the system still maintains 5 psi, its the minimum I can set it for.

Ok, so generic answer to totally generic question.
Pros, they will handle more weight than stock without squatting the truck.
Cons, they will lighten your wallet respectively.
Need? Again not enough info to determine need, or if you just got a great idea for no specific reason.
And not enough info to determine, even if something was needed, whether bags would be the best option.

I have Firestone air bags on the rear axle and an Airlift compressor.

Empty, the PSI is 5. With the fifth wheel, I run at 38 PSI. The ride is much smoother.
