I was going to go with the Airbar, but almost all the guys here have the KP Components 6-link and love it and say it rides great .. plus it's cheaper and it will get you more lift and go lower since the bag isnt over the axle.

Both are good quality kits. The thing about the Air Bar is that it was not designed to lay out and provides it's own notch making the installer modify several things before you can lay. The KP components cantilever kit does not provide a notch, but you can add a step notch to lay out. The KP also adds the capability of more lift.
From what I've heard about the air bar, both ride good (I would expect that from Air Ride Technologies).
The advantage about the Air Bar is that you have the capability to tow more than a stock truck can and the KP is limited to a stock towage capability.

Hey is my opinion. I don’t really care for the KP canti because all of them I have seen the bed are messed up on them. The gap between the bed and the cab are crooked and is a lot bigger then normal. I don’t know why this happens but I believe it has to do with that entire rear support of the truck is pretty much at the very back of the truck so the frame is able to flex a lot more cause the bed to look misaligned. To me that looks terrible. With my air bar that does not happen. Air Ride also put a lot of work and engineering into their setups.

i agree with brandon i dont like using the cantilever just do F9000 behind the axle.. now what is the point of bagging your truck if you dont want to be low.. if you dont like that dont bag your truck.. isnt that the point of air suspension.. and ive seen the gaps along with brandon at car shows its funny every truck that had the KP setup had that nice gap!

With these shit-ass frames on these NBS trucks that gap is gonna happen more often than not. I would still choose the KP kit over the ART kit ANYDAY.
