    I put those same bags on my F-350 in november. I have a truckcraft dump insert, this winter i put about 6000lbs. of salt in the bed and the truck didn't go down in the back at all:weightlifter:

    Thats good to know the most ill be putting in it will be 2 yards of top soil. A majority of the time ill have my enclosed trailer on the back with a load of grass or mulch.

    The bags themselves cost me $325 then it was $60 and hr to install them, i dont know how much it cost to do just that because i have some other work done while i was there so im not sure how long it took for that i want to say around 2 hrs so your looking at a little over $450. With a van tho it might be a different type of bag so... contact a dealer and talk to them about it .

    I hear a lot of guys around here are blowing their bags out.

    I don't know how accurate that statement was, just what I have been hearing.

    Let us know how they hold up though.

    I have air bags on my 1990 Ford F150 2wd and they are awesome. I haven't put a lot of weight in the back yet because I just got the truck this winter. They will sure raise the backend up ALOT with no weight back there.LOL. Good Luck with them, I hope they work great for you.
