My take is that Chrysler offered air suspension on their upper end models first - Laramie and Sport. Then after a few weeks they stopped offering on the Sport but added it to the Outdoorsman ( I ordered one). I would imagine this is all due to limited quantities of parts at this time and also to look at requests from dealers for this option. Nothing has been "discontinued".

This.

I can't believe anyone bought for a second that air ride would be discontinued.

I tried to order a Sport with the air suspension yesterday and the dealer could not find the option for the Sport. It was there for the Express though.

I'm looking to change my 2009 sport for a 2013, went to the dealer last week here in quebec pronvince, canada, and they have receive a brand new sport crew cab with the air suspension just the week before, so i'm guessing it's still available,.

however i forgot to check if it had the 8speed or the old one,..

I've been trying to order a Sport with air suspension and 8 speed and have been unsuccessful for a month now. Hopefully the parts constraint clears up soon.

If it is on the dealers lot it would be a 6 speed. 8 speed have not started production as of yet to my knowledge. I believe they start production 1st week in March.

I just ordered a Big Horn on Jan. 30. Was told by the dealer that the air suspension couldn't be added to the truck because it was on back order.

Which was fine for me because I was unsure whether I wanted it or not.

I guess I got lucky when I ordered my Outdoorsman. Initially the air suspension was not available when I first tried to order on the 18th of January. I was considering the Sport or Laramie but was having trouble reconciling the price difference. Then we looked again and the Sport did not have the option but then the Outdoorsman did. We ordered the Outdoorsman with air suspension and 8 speed transmission/Hemi on 1/26/2013. The order confirmation went through as a sold vehicle of priority 1. I have not received a VIN as of yet.
