He had no WD hitch & no sway control & the kicker was....he was using a Wal-Mart hitch, the kind that are only rated at 5-6000 lbs MAX. The tongue where the ball was bolted on, was bent down so far, that the trailers ball mount lip was touching the hitch as well. I mentioned it to him. He immediately dropped the F bomb & told me to mind my own GD business, blah, blah, blah. People are awesome & many have zero regard for you or your families safety. Gotta be on high alert, especially when towing.

edit: Sounds like the bags will replace the bump stops so it may be a good idea to run the kit with the internal jounce bumper to reduce change of damage to air bags on bottom out conditions (which the truck will seldom if ever see).
