I don't think there is a kit that will work with it lowered. I build a set of mounts for my truck as it has 3in shackle with the overload removed. I'll see if I can get some pics

The bag will have to be mounted outside the frame rail instead of under it. Kits for a 1500 that mounts on the outside of the frame is all you will find that is bolt on but won't be the same as what is offered for a 2500

The ford bags Mount like that. Shouldn't be too hard to retrofit

Built this for mine, it's on two leaves now not sure how much lower than stock. Works good for what I do.

Get a kit for an 99-02 dodge 3500.. have to drill holes but it'll work. As long as your wheels have stock offset at least..

I ran a set on my lowered Zf6

The ones that lbz1991 built would most likely work with a fifth wheel.

Mine mount off the rear of the axle. Still requires welding and drilling but clears the bed hitch and my 5in exhaust. Think I have some extra brackets if you're intrested

There is a company called Timbren that makes a HD rubber bump stop for towing, I talked to them on the phone awhile back and they told me they didn't make a kit for lowered trucks but I could pull measurements and they could make something work. If you don't have to have airbags it's another option.

Doesn't air lift make a kit for lowered trucks?

These are exactly what he needs.

I have a set I've never installed
