Itís the hybrid, I get 16-20 mixed depending on if I go 80 in the express lanes or not.

If youíre considering adding an airbag kit I would very much recommend getting the daystar cradles instead of bolting the bottom of the bag to the lower mount. Makes the ride like factory since it only contacts the cradle when itís under load.
I have air ride on my current truck and I wont own another truck without it. I have the Air Lift Kit with the wireless controller. One of the best add ons for towing.

My only problem is the module that controls the compressor recently went out (covered under warranty) but due to the the chip shortage they don't have replacements at this time. Luckily, I have the manual stem in the rear where I can still use the system.

I’ll second the Firestone air spring/Daystar cradle combo. I just added the Firestone air springs with Daystar cradles and Air Lift compressor to my ‘20 Sierra 1500 Denali. With the minimum 5 PSI, the air springs are sitting in the cradles but I have not noticed any change to the smooth Denali ride when unloaded. This set-up tows the X30 so much better and the cradles allow full articulation/droop of the rear axle when off-road or on a lift.

Tow Vehicle & Rig Photos

Pulled the trigger on the 2021 GMC 2500 AT4. Actually a little over a month ago, couldnít pass up what they were giving me for my old truck. Of course now that Iíve got it I see white ones just like it everywhere. Iím not normally one to do much to a truck but I might have to put some wheels on this one to make it stand out a little.
