Default Roadmaster Active Suspension Feedback

Installed the Roadmaster Active Suspension on my 2017 F150 Super Crew the other day. Drove from Cleveland to Chicago this weekend to drop off a load of furniture. Wow. Super impressed with the ride there loaded and the ride back unloaded. Felt like a caddy. The back and front of the truck felt like one. Super smooth handling. Way more stable around sharp curves. No push feeling when semis passed me. I read good things about the product and thought my ride would be better but it surpassed my expectations. Also truck did not sag an inch. Worth every penny.

Installed a set on my 2017 F150 4X4 Supercab. These things are worth it. Got rid of the hopping and sway. Best works with a set of AT tires instead of those Highway tires.

Just ordered a pair. I've been pulling a camper for a few years but now I'm getting ready to move the family - will load up the truck and pull the camper a few thousand miles. On principle I like the Roadmaster solution better than airbags. I'll post up again on this thread after my travels are completed.

Interested how they work for you. I bet you will see a difference with all driving.

Had the RAS on my 2001 Excursion, it made a tremendous improvement in drivability and handling. This upgrade is on my shortlist for sure.

Got some in the garage waiting for warm weather to install before camping season. Was kind of hoping for a set of factory rear blocks to pop up since Iím leveled and itís already a little high in the rear. Did you see any more height unloaded once they were installed?

I did. Maybe an inch with the first setting. Using the second setting I would assume maybe a little more. I started with the first setting to see how they do and I am happy with it.

Default Before After

Not the best angle but pic with the long box is without suspension installed and pic with moving boxes is with it installed. When I look from side into the wheel well I can see more open space as the bed is a little higher.
