how did you do a U-turn in aero mode?... it only engages that mode at speeds of 62mph or greater...

It's excellent. Above reviews reminded me of the towing/loading advantage which is why I wanted it in the first place. I like how it stiffens up a little in Aero mode. It handles very well on the highway (like a corvette compared to my old Chev). Really nice for the parking structures as it is very, very close in most of them! As said above, funny looks when it is raised and lowered... Looks like people are second guessing their eye's when they see it! It raises to surprisingly high as well, particularly when it is raised from entry mode all the way up to off road 2.

I searched for months to find a Ram 1500 Sport with the 8spd and Air Ride suspension.
So far I do not regret the decision at all. I absolutely love the adjustability and how the truck feels and handles.
My only wish is that an aftermarket tuner, will allow more control over the settings. Id like to get 10km/h (6mph) more speed out of offroad level 1.

I think there is not a huge difference in ride quality, the air is slightly more soft in handling to me. Is very handy with getting in and out of the truck, plus load leveling rocks.

Here is my suspension in action. I could only do it from Normal to Off-Road 1 because someone has to push the button again and I was the one filming. Off Road 2 raised it off blocks. I did notice the suspension will stop if there is resistance but resets and goes up anyway.



Truck bed was loaded with wood and there was a fair amount of tongue weight. Truck was smooth going down the road.

I have a little over one cord so that is about 4,000 pounds. I would say the truck bed had 700 pounds and the tongue weight another 700 pounds then add weight of trailer.
