I plan to install this system first thing when I get the 350 delivered. I will probably have it here waiting depending on what I see here. So thanks for your thoughts or experience. Will these bags be able to handle the articulation of a Tremor? That is the simplest form of the question I can think of to start a conversation.

Mr Truck has it on his normal super duty and seems very pleased. You can even look up his youtube videos about it.
 
I think probably some limit straps will be needed but I'm not sure. I plan to talk with auto flex but I'm very curious if anyone is already running the system
 
Just curious... why even bother with the "Tremor package" if you want to do this modification??? There is no special articulation with the F-350 other than the lack of the rear trac bar... not sure what you gain or not gain in the rear. Seems like any F350 would be fine with this.

Mostly because I want the payload for a large amount of overland gear and I also plan to have it hitched to a black series off road trailer. I like the idea of the larger axle tubes to handle that weight bouncing around. I hope that answer makes sense.

...and the air ride is so my daughter and I don't hear riding in it "unladen"

I meant hate not hear. Sorry don't know how to edit at this point. I think the air ride might require track bar, I'm not sure yet. The leveling, softer ride, and potential to control the bags independently with a micro controller (pipe dreaming) without seeming to lose any capability is why I'm interested.
 
Since when does the Tremor have larger axle tubes??
 
My understanding, I might have read it wrong, the 350 uses larger and thicker axle tubes.
 
Kelderman also makes a full air ride system
 
I'm still not sure if the truck will be able to articulate with these air systems. I'm not sure if either set of links are designed for twisting. I do like the kelderman because of the four link design but the heavy sway bar might be a problem. It is possible to potentially integrate a microcontroller that can be used to tell the bags to try and keep the cab level instead of the frame level with the axle but I'm not sure. It can be difficult trying to gather all this info from a phone. I'm disabled and immune deficient so it isn't always easy to just go look at things, but I own a self built rock crawling jeep on 35s so I am familiar with off roading and am not building a street queen with this truck.
 
For all that trouble, I would simply invest in a full Carli system complete with long travel airbags. (4" lift)

I had experience with Kelderman in a 2008 SD. Nice system, not knocking it in any way, but it isn't off road friendly for best articulation (although it's pretty good for just rutted fireroads). It's a pretty complicated system as well. I have no knowledge of the autoflex.

That said, it isn't out of the realm of possibility either. I had a Range Rover (first gen) that flexed extremely well on air suspension.

Just so youre aware,

While adding air bags may improve how the truck handles weight, it is not going to increase your payload.

The number on your door plate is your payload, and if anything its going to go down with mods not up.

If youre not worried about legality issues then sure this may help improve your squat when loaded, but your payload isnt changing....
