Bigdiezel79 is on a distinguished road
Default 2013 1500 options

So I went on the dodge site to price and build a new 2013 SLT crew cab 4X4. You can get 3.92 gears and a ANTI Spin differential. I do have a question on the ANTI Spin is that dodges way of saying limited slip
I also see an option for air suspension with 3 settings 1 load setting lowers the truck 2 inches a Highway setting that lowers the front and rear for areodynamics and a offroad setting that raises the truck 2 inches. In theroy this would be a good idea but I have worked on log trucks for years and airbag suspensoins are very problematic.

I would like more infomation on this ANTI spin differential anybody have any ideas??

Thats what I thought. In the 2500 and 3500's the option is called limited slip just kinda raised a question with the two being different

air bag suspension should be good in our small trucks

you won't be jarring the Ram anything like what happens to a big rig
the bags are not going to see the Suns rays, so they should not deteriorate

surely someone will come up with a way to re-valve the settings

The bags are normally not a problem. I was thinking more of air supply,valves, etc. Are they going to run a belt driven air compressor or electric. Are settings going to be preset by computer or are there going to be leveling valves. Will there be drain valves to drain moisture from the system. Not saying it a bad thing but there could be several weak points in the system. The biggest problem these trucks will have with the bags would be salt. Like i said its a good idea in theroy I just see a bunch of issues coming up with it. But hopefully Im wrong

Probably about the same as you would if you snap a spring out in the sticks. However I don't expect the bags are an option likely to be chosen by someone looking to pound trails.
