I would be curious to find out if the air lift works with 4" lifts. If that was the case then when you go highway mode that drops 2" that would put you at around a 2" lift which would be like having a leveling kit lol. Then again if you go off road mode you would add 2 inches so you wouldhave 6". I think that would be pretty sweet.

If it give more payload capacity and towing capacity, then yes i would want it.

If not, then AirLift 1000 with a compressor does the job just fine.

I'm certainly waiting to test drive an 'air equipped' truck on the roads I travel daily to determine if there is enough difference to merit the $$$. Anything else is just kinda "pokin' and hopin' "

I really love the air suspension on the Buick PA but before I say 'yes' or 'no' for the same setup on the truck, I want to know what it's going to cost me to work on it and replace parts.

They must all ready be having issues with the air suspension. I ordered this as an option on my 2013 Laramie, and it is keeping the truck from being built.
Told dealer yesterday to drop option from my order and GET MY TRUCK BUILT.

Hope it's nothing like the old Lincolns you see driving around with the rear bumper scraping the ground and bouncing down the street like a basketball.

the air suspension is already on the jeep grand cherokee. if it improved the ride, although i think our trucks ride well already, i might go for it on my next truck in 7 or 8 years from now.

The air suspension in my wife's GC Overland is awesome. It will definitely be on the menu when I order my ram. Waiting for the 8 speed.... ugh.

I stopped by the dealer looking to get a new ram and tested out the laramie on the lot with the air suspension.

I was wondering if I should take a 12 on the lot with the deep discounts or get a 13 with the latest goodies....

So after testing the air suspension and seeing the other goodies, im sold on the 13s.

I am now thinking of holding out until the 6'4" beds come for the crew cabs.... but I love the air suspension.

It sits really low when at its park setting, good for loading, the dog jumping in and even just sitting on the tail gates...

when at the offroad 2 setting it is obviously up much high and creates some much needed ground clearance.

So yeah, if your thinking about the air suspension... get it.

Combine the air suspension, 6'4" crew cab box and the rear coils and dodge really has the best back section of any full size truck (whole truck in my opinion).
