You must have been in entry mode (the lowest setting), not aero mode. Aero mode is disabled when you drop below 45 mph.. Since it only rubs at full lock when turning left, you couldn't possibly have done that in aero mode without rolling over several times.

Yes, I have it, I love it and I would buy it again.

My next truck will have this option and a few others did not come on mine this time around.

I love the air ride so far - I installed base plates for towing (removing tow hooks etc) working under front bumper with vehicle in top off road setting without jacking - nice.

I would buy it again even if it was twice the price for the option

I specifically chose not to get the air option. My dealer let me test drive both trucks, one with air and one without. I actually driven them both for about 50 miles each on the same day. I didn't feel much difference and couldnt justify the price for the option. I am since very happy with my RAM even without the air suspension, they are solid trucks.

Besides a great ride, it has some interesting utility. In OR-2, the highest level, it's great for cleaning out the wheel well area, and it sure makes it easier when you need to get under the truck for any reason.

Love it. Work had a long dirty driveway, lifting it up limits the amount of gunk splashing up on the body. Entry/exit is a breeze. Hitting the keyfob button twice to lower it all the way down before entering is a nice feature. Just did my first oil change, lifting it made it a piece of cake w/o any jacks or ramps. I'm sure the trucks ride fine w/o it too, but in the short time I've had the truck I've seen it's well worth the additional cost. Of course that's subjective lol.

I have had my 13 laramie Longhorn 4x4 for just over 3 weeks now and LOVE the Air Suspension, may not ever go back to conventional suspension ever.

I might be one of the only naysayers lol. I personally feel it rides rougher than my old Sport. Since buying it I've gone back and driven my Sport again, and I still swear it rides smoother.

Other than that, I do love the versatility of the raise and lowering options. Washing the truck is a heck of a lot easier when you can throw it in exit mode.

I'm 50/50 on whether I'd order another one with it.
