It appears as if the front shocks are built into the front airbag assembly. Is this true or am I not seeing something. And two. Are there any current aftermarket upgraded shocks for the air suspension models? I figure since it sits at multiple heights you can't just throw any old shock on the truck.

I was under the impression they were just regular coils? Have you tried contacting your local dealers parts dept, they can probabaly give a definitive answer on specifics of the shock..

The rebel only has the air suspension . and I would but they are idiots. I have found out more info in forums than my dealer has ever known. When I called a couple weeks back he didn't even know what a rebel was.

yea, yea, my mistake typed coils instead of shocks, was reading a thread on the diesel forum about coils vs shocks LOL

The only concrete piece of info I've been able to find is that their hi-po Bilstein monotubes... no one seems to have legit info yet.

dealers might have it but it could be just some internal document they're not allowed to send out, its possible!
its possible the information is available sure, I mean thats how forums get it. Problem is the care level in the salesmen, they often don't care enough to get into the nitty gritty, which is unfortunate when you're dealing with an enthusiast product. The guys coming to see you are going to be ABSOLUTE product geeks and they better be on point. I'm really surprised this hasn't been focused on more, or even salesmen who have demonstrated passion are the only ones allowed to sell the enthusiast models. They already restrict certain models by dealer volume, why not limit the sales people as well. Let the guys who can really connect with the madmen be the ones who sell to the madmen, bet they would cut down on bad experiences significantly...

(of course this is a dream)

Horrible sales reps in dealers are all too common, rare to see one that is passionate about the product or even for selling and moving units which in turn would make them passionate about the product.

Rare.

How true. I remember when I picked up my 2009 Power Wagon at the Dodge dealership salesmen were looking at it wondering what is was. And I will never forget when I brought it in for service and the service writer asked me what kind of lift and mods I have made to the truck. 100% factory I told him and then I had to explain what a Powerwagon was to him.

when i was in college i used to work at a local bmws dealer, a few of our service advisors were ex techs or just general car guys, the real enthusiast owners loved these guys because they would chat about the car, maybe some internal stuff about the cars or whatever. it really goes a long way to making feel comfortable... IMO
