I asked for better pricing on the air bags and cradles and auto anything took off another $20-ish off of the combo. So the air bags and cradles have been ordered, I hope to get them installed next weekend if they arrive by then.

Thanks a bunch for taking time to post this. I have the Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags and Daystar cradles installed on my 2017. I am working on the airlines now. The post was really helpful!

Heck yea!

Only thing I would do differently is start right off with a compressor and dual path auto air setup.

Right bag blew out the other day. Leaking out of the center hole in the bottom under the label. Replacement was 150-ish. Swapped out in 15 minutes. I'm going to keep at least 5lbs in them from here on out and see how it goes. Cheers.

Great thread guys!
Wondering if anyone upgraded their swaybar along with bags?

Rear sway bar? It's fine. But I would do the rear trackbar with a Thuren unit. That'll make a big impact.

One of the OG PWIM guys did a Currie AntiRock swaybar in the rear and said it was a big improvement. That rear bar sits fairly narrowly so it makes sense that adding a wider bar with adjustability is helpful. Don’t know how much that really applies to most guys unless you’re running top heavy or jamming hard in the dirt.

Has anyone experienced problems with mud and stones getting into the cradle over time?

I really don't do much mud, and will go out of my way to avoid it if possible, but I do 2-3k of desert dirt/sand a year. And it's been a year since I put mine in. I had it on my lift this past weekend eyeing available real-estate for some future mods, and I gave them a good once over. My concern was wear from abrasion where the bag settles in the cradle. So far so good.
