    Rich, I have the lower StableLoads and am a fan. Airbags leak and onboard compressors wear out. Yes, Timbrens serve the same purpose. I would suggest hooking up and going camping as is. If you feel you need some additional support, you have options. Many do it just for the aesthetic look of being level. I added StableLoads to keep the rear end of the truck from bouncing so much over uneven highways...

    Hi Rich,
    Do you have the high capacity tow package on your 6.7 250? If so, you have an identical truck to a SRW 350 but for one leaf spring in the rear pack. If needed, this can easily be supplemented by air bags, StableLoads, or a SuperSpring. As to RAWR, no matter what 250 you get, your rear axle rating will be 6340# which is a de-rate just like the 10k GVWR. Both the Sterling 10.5 that comes on the gasser and standard capacity 6.7 250 as well as the DANA M275 that comes on the high capacity tow package 250 are capable of more for sure... just like your entire truck is. What I always figure is that you have at least the same capacity as a SRW 350. One thing to remember though is that the 250's often have lower tire pressure ratings due to their de-rated payload. So, if running at the 350's ratings, you'll need to run its tire pressure too. 60 in the front and 80 in the rear. You can always go back to OE pressure when not towing. Anyways, that's my take on it.
    Regards,
    Rodney
