Keep us posted. I'm due to put money down this afternoon on my order with air suspension! The air ride is one of the main reasons I'm ordering my first Ram! Geez.

I just "talked" to a dealer in Arizona that we know on our R/T owner's page on FB and he said the option has been discontinued on entry level trucks. Going forward, Laramie and up.

Completely my opinion as why... We all know how 1st generation stuff is. I imagine that they either see a future problem with longevity or someone messed up on the math in the first place. Either way, entry level "profit" won't compliment warranty costs as a whole down the road.

Don't get air, then once you have your truck, install yourself a TLC kit, best of both worlds

So much goes on in this forum it's hard to get the truth. I have a Laramie with VIN # but is being held for parts,that could be the reason .I see a lot of comments with our group talking to dealers or sales rep's however I know many times sales rep's tell you somethings that are not true because they want you to buy inventory units not order.There's and old saying in the business"you can eat be backs"

I ordered my truck yesterday with air ride. I have yet to hear anything about this from my dealer. IMO getting the coils and then adding TLC is not the same. TLC doesn't allow the truck to be lowered 2 inches when parked. My mom is old and can't get around very well. Sometimes I have to take her places and with the truck I have now, I carry a small step for her to get in and out. The air ride was going to make it easier on her. The side steps aren't a large enough platform for her. It also would make it easier to load my dirtbike and quad. Plus it is cool!

I already own a truck so they weren't trying to sell me anything i don't know why the sales manager would right a fake email and show it to me... There were other items on the list as well, something to do with the wheel to wheel running boards and other little things.
