Default Air Assist for 2500 not available yet

I went to price out a 2014 Laramie 2500 at the dealership. They told me the air assist is not available for the 2500 yet and will not be until first quarter of 2014. Does this sound correct?

I was hoping to get the air assist in the rear as I will be towing a 8,000# RV travel trailer with almost 1,000# tongue weight. The air bags should help the coils from sagging I would think.

That sounds right. Production doesn't start till Q1. Still in calibration testing I think.

Here is the latest I've seen on the rear air suspension availability on the 2500.

Default Air suspension ?

Could the air ride suspension option be installed after you bought your truck

Hopefully Firestone releases a Ride-Rite air bag kit for the new 2500 Rams. I've installed them on my last couple trucks, and they work great when hauling/towing heavy loads.

bertburch, the Donlen website reads that they start production of 2500 Rams with air suspension on February 3rd, ( 11 days from now )

By the time that you make a list of things you need or want on your next 2500 Ram, those 11 days will be past & you can make a Factory Special Order
Being as it will be built in Saltillo Mexico, you could be driving it in 8 weeks from now

Haven't some people on this board been stating they have ORDERED the air suspension option on the 2500s already? If so, what is the stated MSRP on the option? I haven't seen it anywhere nor is it available on the Build portion of the Ram site (the RamBox doesn't show up to build either on the 1500 but we know you can).
