Default 2013 ram info

Recently I have been looking for a new truck and I have been looking at the 2013 ram 2500 SLT with the 5.7 (hemi) and the 2013 ram Laramie, both 4wd. But the Laramie is catching my attention a lot, but one thing that I saw on the Laramie is that it has air ride so If I put a lift in the future what will happens to the air ride system. PLZ REPLY IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO

You can not lift a truck that has the air ride suspension. That is why I stayed away from that set-up. You can still get the Laramie with a conventional suspension that you can put a lift on.

Thanks for the reply, I did not know that but now I know. Thanks for the info because I would tried to put a lifted or leveling kit on it right away. But can you put bigger tires on it or you can only leave it stock.

I would use caution on this, as the air suspention lowers on its own as I understand it when in park and also when operating at highway speed. I would think this could cause clearance issues.

I researched this as well before I bought mine. I stayed away from the air suspension for exactly those same reasons. Can't even level them out. I also drove both before I started searching for the truck I wanted. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the two, so spending an extra $1,500 weighed in heavily here. I'm perfectly happy with the standard suspension; I pull a big bass boat but that's about it, the truck is way more than adequate for that.
