As light-truck segment sales in the U.S. continue to exceed industry expectations, climbing toward a six-year high in market share and increasing 18.8% from a year ago, Air Lift Co. is keeping pace, adding six new applications for half-ton pickups to its growing line of suspension solutions.
According to a press release, Air Lift’s newest kits for half-ton trucks are part of its LoadLifter 5000 series kit line, which works with the vehicle’s existing suspension, delivering up to 5,000 pounds of load leveling capacity, eliminating sway and squat, and increasing safety and comfort when towing or hauling heavy loads.
“We’ve engineered these applications in direct response to customer demand as smaller tow vehicles gain in popularity, in-part because of rising gas prices,” said Kevin Mehigh, president, Air Lift. “Half-ton trucks are also in greater demand because RV makers have created more half-ton towing fifth wheels and sliding hitches. Our ongoing goal is to deliver the high-quality, easily installed suspension systems our customers want.”
Further improving on its suspension line, Air Lift’s air spring kits will feature Goodyear Engineered Products air springs for optimum performance. Half-ton pickup owners can add an Air Lift WirelessAIR compressor system to gain independent control of air springs with convenient one-touch inflation and deflation from inside or outside the vehicle.
Air Lift’s new adjustable suspension solutions for half-ton applications are available for the following vehicles:
• 2007-2014 Chevy/GMC Silverado/Sierra 1500 GMT 900, 2WD and 4WD
• 2002-2008 Dodge Ram 1500, half-ton pickup 2WD & 4WD
• 2004-2014 Ford F-150, half-ton pickup (new body) 2WD & 4WD
