What Goose-Hitch Friendly Air Bags????

Well I changed my mind to get away from the add-a-leaf for the rear and go ahead and buy a set of bags before I leave this next trip. Springs are nice and soft from the goose pounding away all spring, so I wanted to ask you all what you suggest. I do not need some crazy set of high end bags and it would be nice to push up 1000-1500 lbs of pin weight an inch or two to level it out. I went on to firestones website and they have the 2071 rear bags. I have no need for a compressor. I assume these will fit just fine, considering I have not measured for the 7.5Ē of clearance.

My dilemma is my Drop in lock Goose hitch wraps around the frame rail on the outside similar to a B&W. Who has a kit that works with a goose hitch? Do you have a part number? I really donít want to fab my own set since I have very limited time, but It would be very easy to do a cutout for the goose and simply weld a few beads to it, not the frameÖ However if Iím buying a kit Iíd rather not cut it up. Anybody who typically needs to run bags is probably more than likely have a goose hitch in the truck, and I couldnít imagine Firestone not making a kit that isnít goose friendlyÖ.

Anyways Iím asking you all what you suggest??? Come on I know there is a grip of you running them on hereÖ.
