    I've been around a 550 that had a conversion from leaf to air. Worked great!

    Yeah I think it'd be the best for comfort and still having a great payload.

    I got air helpers on both Dodges and love them. Factory install and no leafs is just sweet!

    Great idea for sure. Be interesting to see what it adds to the price tag though. I was never a fan of coil springs in the rear but air seems like it would be nice especially for those who use a 3/4 ton for things other than just work. I love how my Dodge rides with 10k lbs behind it but the trip to the dump can be rough!

    This is BIG! Dodge needs to get this to market NOW! Air bags at all 4 corners ... for towing, plowing, hwy cruising, smoother ride, no more wheel hop, better fuel econnomy, etc, etc. A fully adjustable air suspension is a win win for everyone in every circumstance.
    It's a no-brainer and hard to believe one of the manufacturers haven't done this long ago. Even as an option.
