Comfort, Control, Confidence with Rebellion™ XD Cushion Hitch


The Rebellion™ XD adjustable cushion hitch ball mount #45949 is proven to reduce jerking, jarring and road noise at the coupling point, making it an investment for the long haul. With ShockDrop™ technology, its integrated, dynamic, cushioned isolator absorbs bumps, potholes and rattling to help provide a more comfortable towing experience and better control over your vehicle and trailer.

Unlike other shock-absorbing hitch options, Rebellion™ XD is simple and virtually maintenance-free. It’s also highly tested for thousands of cycles to ensure dependable longevity. It has no airbags or bearings to service – an integrated grease zerk fitting allows for continuous lubrication.

Rebellion™ XD improves the comfort of your ride, enhances your control over the towing setup and ultimately promotes confidence for the road ahead.

Rebellion™ XD Cushion Hitch Review | Kustom Construction Testimonial


Pat Lee of Kustom Construction reviews the CURT Rebellion™ XD cushion hitch ball mount #45949. With ShockDrop™ technology, the Rebellion™ XD is designed to provide a more comfortable towing experience, improved driving control and increased longevity for your vehicle and equipment. “It’s a night-and-day difference,” Lee says.

Kustom Construction is a general contracting company based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pat and his crew have used the Rebellion™ XD for about a month, on all their trailers – flatbed trailers, dump trailers, enclosed trailers and more. Pat discusses what makes this cushion hitch a “phenomenal product” and the advantages that it offers for regular, heavy-duty towing.

The Rebellion™ XD has a large cushion – an integrated isolator – so that when the trailer moves while towing, the truck doesn’t. This is the Rebellion™ XD’s ShockDrop™ technology. It provides a more comfortable ride, less strain on the tow vehicle and more control for the driver.

As a general contractor, the Kustom Construction crew hauls their tools, machinery, scrap materials and other heavy loads. The Rebellion™ XD offers a night-and-day difference for comfort, control and longevity, compared to a traditional ball mount hitch. “It’s almost like having air ride suspension without having it,” Lee says.

The Rebellion™ XD cushion hitch ball mount is great for lowered trucks and lifted trucks because it easily adjusts up or down as needed, leveling out the trailer and promoting a smooth ride.

Air Lift - Diego Ranch - Featuring WirelessOne™ - #LifeOnAir


Down in Arkansas, there’s a very special place called Diego Ranch. Owned and managed by Michael Jackson, Diego Ranch Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c) that provides equine assisted services to children and adults with mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. The team at Diego Ranch also serves local schools, churches, retirement homes, and everything in between, offering riding lessons and instruction for proper safety around horses.

In order to make all of this happen, Michael has to be able to get his equine therapists to his clients in need. The ranch has three trailers – a 23-foot long, bumper-pull, three horse trailer; a 28-foot long, bumper-pull, flatbed cargo trailer; and a 28-foot long, gooseneck flatbed trailer. When you’re towing and hauling stuff that big, and assets as priceless as their equine therapists, you want to feel safe and secure when on the road.

In 2019, Michael added a set of our LoadLifter 7500XL air springs and the WirelessOne on-board air compressor system to his 2017 Ford F-250 in an effort to get the vehicle level and driving comfortably. The system was installed quickly and professionally by DNW Truck Accessories in Jonesboro, Arkansas (along with a new set of tires), and Michael was back on the road in only a few hours.

“Not only is it safer for us, but oncoming traffic doesn’t flash bright lights at us anymore. We feel more confident in less wear and tear on the tires and suspension of the truck and trailers. So far, it looks like our fuel mileage has increased, which is a huge savings as well.”

At Air Lift, we are honored to play a small role in helping Diego Ranch to create better lives and create true and lasting change within their community. Special thanks to Michael Jackson, the team at Diego Ranch, and all of the clients for sharing their #lifeonair with us!

Tested. Proven. Safe | Always On Liberty | Full-Time RVers | TRAILER


After watching a GoRVing commercial, Dan and Lisa Brown entertained the adventurous idea of permanent RV living. Now, five years later, they travel the country in their heavy-duty Ram truck, towing their full-time home behind them.

Always On Liberty began after Dan and Lisa retired from the U.S. Coast Guard to pursue their passion for RVing. They loved taking extended trips but always had to return home to care for their house and pets.

Finally, they decided to sell everything, pack up their cats and motorcycles and make RVing their full-time lifestyle. The name “Always On Liberty” came from their Coast Guard days. Time off was called “liberty.” Jealous of their ship comrades who always seemed to be on liberty, Dan and Lisa thought the name was a perfect fit for their new lifestyle – taking permanent time off: Always On Liberty.

Their RV home is a 41-foot 2016 Heartland Landmark Ashland 5th wheel that weighs roughly 18,000 pounds. It is completely self-contained and self-sustainable with solar panels and a clean water supply. To ensure quality and safety for the long-term, Dan and Lisa chose the CURT Q24 5th wheel hitch to tow their 5th wheel trailer.

Tongue Weight Safety Demonstration


Proper trailer tongue weight improves the vehicle and trailer towing experience by improving performance. Not enough tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball causes an increase in trailer sway from side to side, making it difficult to control. Conversely, too much tongue weight or force on the hitch/tow ball could overload the rear tires of the towing vehicle, pushing the rear end of the vehicle around. This could also negatively affect the vehicle handling. Performance is impaired as you might not be able to go around corners and curves properly, and your vehicle may not stop quickly enough when you press the brake pedal.

The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch effectively measures the tongue weight of your towing load, improving the vehicle tow load balance and performance.

It easily plugs into your vehicle and wirelessly connects to your smartphone, allowing you to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from your own device. It comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android phones, a portable design to easily switch between vehicles and a potted enclosure for lasting weather resistance.

Most things in this day and age can be accessed or controlled from a smartphone. With the Echo™ that includes your trailer brakes! It features a Bluetooth-enabled system that connects right to your device. There is no need for extra modules, controls, buttons or knobs. Your smartphone becomes the brake control monitoring unit in the cab of your vehicle.

The Echo™ brake control has one of the easiest installations in the industry. Very simply, it plugs into the standard 7-way RV blade socket at the rear of your vehicle and provides a socket to plug in the trailer harness.

Because the Echo™ trailer brake controller is made to be outside the vehicle, we engineered it for maximum weather resistance. It is constructed with a potted enclosure, meaning the inside of the unit is filled with an epoxy resin that seals off the internal components from moisture and the elements. This ensures long-lasting operation in spite of rain, snow, dirt, mud and more. The Echo™ also has silicone-coated ports for connecting to the 7-way RV blade plugs.

Most Pickups Need Better Passenger-Side Protection


Most pickups need better passenger-side protection

ARLINGTON, Va. — The majority of pickups recently put through the passenger-side small overlap front test struggled to maintain their structure, but two trucks — the Ford F-150 and the Nissan Titan — earn a good rating.

The F-150 and the Titan join the Ram 1500, whose good rating in the test was released late last year.

The Honda Ridgeline, which earns an acceptable rating in the passenger-side test, is the only pickup so far to qualify for the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK award, thanks to available good-rated headlights, which the other models all lack, and available superior-rated front crash prevention. The Ridgeline qualifies for the award only when equipped with those features.

The Toyota Tacoma also earns an acceptable rating in the passenger-side test, but it falls short of an award because of headlights.

In total, IIHS has rated 11 crew cab pickups in the passenger-side test — four small and seven large. The Toyota Tundra, a large pickup, earns the only poor rating, while five of the trucks rate marginal.
