It's great that there is this range of adjustment with the RAM Rebel, I can bet that a good portion of Rebel owners will be doing these adjustment themselves rather than going to the dealer.
The functional changes are Bilstein front and rear shocks; a different steering and stability-control calibration; a softer rear stabilizer bar; 33-inch (LT285/70R17E) Toyo Open Country A/T all-terrain tires; and a one-inch raised ride height, increasing the off-road approach, departure, and breakover angles. These are all changes made not only by owners, but also by dealers — which would normally void the warranty. With the Rebel, such “customizations” not only do not void the warranty, but also make service calls less likely than if done by owners or dealers (since the lift and larger tires both change the suspension geometry).
The whole point of the Rebel was to eliminate the adjustments to 1500s at the dealer level. This is a factory package that will replace dealer level improvements.It's great that there is this range of adjustment with the RAM Rebel, I can bet that a good portion of Rebel owners will be doing these adjustment themselves rather than going to the dealer.
Rebound of air bags won't be nearly as quick as with metal. Not sure how I feel about it, but I can imagine RAM being the brand they are have went with a wise enough choice here.I am wondering how this air suspension does in the off road? Guess I could research it.
We already got a good look at a test mule spotted out in the wild, signaling at what stage they're at. And the differences from what we originally seen to that is clear too. Hope you've seen them.Also something about new aluminum control arms if I remember the article right. There are some good things on the truck. It's probably all I would ever need in a truck but for the price they might be asking a person really wants a very capable truck. It's getting closer to June or when ever they release the price and final package. Keeping my eyes open:nerd:
I guess we wont be seeing much of you around after that postNot really buying into this new Ram Rebel. The changes are so subtle. 1'' ride height over the sport is not saying much. Why pay more? It just seems like an over inflated marketing gimmick in my opinion.
It's actually 2 inches higher.Well the rise in ride height does seem like it could be achieved with a simple lift. I imagine that it would be cheaper than paying for the Rebel, though the Rebel does offer more than just a 1" boost in ride height.
