I can't confirm or deny having moved a now cat into or out of that part of the country. But i can say I was glad to have tied it to the trailer tightly. and I am glad the trailer was securely hooked to the truck..... Just make sure your pilot car has good review mirrors on it......

+ 1 on the craftsmanship, enjoy the cat.
After driving there, I now get it!

Not sure if all of theirs are the same, and never have looked at their promo stuff.. That being said, it works great.

Just looked at their site. What I have is a 2 Stage Air Suspension

The springs/overloads are used the same as in your application, so the stock springs are utilized. Difference being that the springs are mounted to a floating carriage, so they have more room to move (The other difference, my 2002 F450 springs are substantially bigger). The beauty is that you can adjust the rear height for different trailers at the push of a button. More air-taller, less air -shorter, or (when empty) run low pressure for the Cadillac touch. The truck still rides hard when empty (compared to a car or 1/2 ton truck), but I think it rides softer than a stock single tire 1 ton. Weighted, it rides nice! Hauling a huge travel trailer, with 1800lbs of smoker and camp kitchen on the back, no tail sag, comfy, and only 80psi in the bags (I could go much higher; they are big truck bags).
Thanks for the information (and the drawing)! I went to their website and was pleasantly surprised at the multiple offerings still available for my truck (also a 2002). When I bought it, the truck was my daily driver, but for the last ten years or so, only gets used when I need to tow something big or haul something big. At the rate it's (not) piling up miles, it will last the rest of my life. (I'm not sure if that's a sad commentary on me or the truck's usage.)

Did you pick any full sized trees or garbage cans out out your load when you hit the highway?
