With the steel suspension you get a 1 inch lift and heavy duty springs as part of the package. If you get the air ride and the off road package, it seems like you get the regular air shocks just set to stay in off road 1 as normal. It doesn’t appear that the price of the package goes down any even though you aren’t getting the shocks and lift.

Of course not. The air ride is more expensive than coils springs. Even if the shocks are upgraded. =)

But with the air ride, you apparently don't get upgraded HD shocks and your maximum ride height is the same as a non-off road equipped air ride truck. Those other items are great though and more than pay for the package. I wonder if the skid plates are different between the off road package and the protection package?

The difference is in the package contents, the same skids would be used, but the Off Road changes the tires, suspension, HDC, E-Locker, and spare tire. It's a way to get the protection without the off road goods, both are pretty well priced IMO.
