    Hi there, new to the site. My question is I have a Ram 2500 crew now with a vplow by boss. I am selling this combo becasue I dont need this much truck for what I plow. I have about 3/4acre to plow. Im am going to trade it in on a 2015 ram 1500 limited with air suspension and the eco diesel. Does anyone know how much weight the air suspension can handle up front? I am going to get a 7'6 boss poly with wings and the weight is 706lbs plus mount weight. Will the air suspension handle this weight?

    LOL. The bad news is Boss doesn't even list a plow for a 2015 1500. It won't go past 4wd but it will for a 2500. Looking forward to the warranty stories for this one.

    Snoway offers a 7.6 blade for that truck.

    I swear, I think Snoway offers a plow for everything.

    What little I do know about the factory air is that it's self leveling, I'm sure a plow work give it a work out.

    Not all 1500's can be built with the air suspention...
    and I don't see the HFE on the list.....
    scroll down to the "air suspension" and click
    Feature Availability
    http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/ram_1500/#ecodiesel_hfe

    it says something about the type of shocks it uses for the diesel, no shocks are used on the air suspension.

    The simplicity of the system, it's weight and lack of sacrificial draws make them acceptable where others are not.

    Do you know or are you a assumed becuse of the advertising ?
    Ram is known for misleading adds,
    Go try to build one.

    You can't get all models for a 1500 with active air how will a diesel have it?
    And as I posted active air doesn't use shock , but the diesel is using shocks.

    as for plows don't fret if no~way makes a plow I'm sure the rest will get their info up soon,

    It's not a option. It's a standard feature.

    Try ordering leather interior with crank windows....you can't do it.... why because it's part of the package

    package smackage.....

    and it's not standard on all 1500,models only on 1 or 2 models the rest have it listed as or a option or not available at all.
    Did you actually go and look or are you just talking?

    It looks like your just talking....

    lets see if it's even offered on all of the gas 1500's

    lets start with a 1500 long box & reg cab?
    nope

    how about the 6.4 box red cab
    nope..

    it looks to be offered or standard with a crewcab and a gas engine....

    this shows it as a option for all crewcab with the 6.4 box in 4x4 but the limited gas it's standard.

    ^^^^ you have 2x4 selected

    Okay....once again, lets stay to the OP question.

    1500 LIMITED.

    Air ride is STANDARD.

    The ECODIESEL is an option.

    What is so hard about this?

    your reading comprehension is on the frits....

    It's not available on all 1500 models like you said it was,not even a option on some no matter how you optioned it out.
    And yes your "lied" to often in their adds for a 1500's of the picks will be of 2500's and 3500's with a gimps
    of a 1500.

    as I have shown it's only available on the short box gassers with the lower capabilities.
    (see my posts above)
    at one time I believe a couple of diesels had a rear active air offered on the 1500 and it was a idea for the 2500 also but they recanted on them..
    it seems to be a good fit for those who want a boulevard cruiser.

    I haven't found any thing saying the 1500 Diesel,
    in any configuration has active air as a option???
    but i'm willing to learn....
