So I orderd a 2016 Ram 1500 crew short box eco diesel with 4 corner air and every other option available. So does anyone hear have a ram 1500 witha plow and the 4 corner air? the plow is going to weigh about 750lbs total. Will the air suspension work with this much weight is the question?

have you confirmed there are mounts available?

Are you sure they will deliver, after all Snofarmer says they don't make it and who are we to doubt him.:laughing::laughing:

Not sure what your going to put in that short box,
but it's your truck.
Here I thought you were getting a truck,
"trucks" dont have active air....
jmo,
yes its a option on a SB

I've but lost all respect for no~way plows as they should not be making a plow for the 1500...
but we know basher will still sell ya one, even tho the MFG says differently, but basher knows best....

now, back to reality.
have you actually looked at the front end?
gfwr?
From your 2016 1500 owners manual.
http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/owners/manuals/

SNOWPLOW
1500 Models Only
NOTE: Do not use this model vehicle for snowplow
applications.
warning,Snowplows and other aftermarket equipment should
not be added to the front end of your vehicle. The
airbag crash sensors may be affected by the change in
the front end structure. The airbags could deploy
unexpectedly or could fail to deploy during a collision
resulting in serious injury or death.
CAUTION!
Using this vehicle for snowplow applications can
cause damage to the vehicle.
WARNING!
Attaching a snowplow to this vehicle could adversely
affect performance of the airbag system in a collision.
p710

2500/3500 Models Only
Snowplow Prep Packages are available as a factory
installed option. These packages include components
necessary to equip your vehicle with a snowplow.
p711

PS the days of service managers truing a blind eye to things like this are all but a thing of the past, expect warranty denial issues down the road after you install a plow on your 1500, happy plowing.

There is no spring,so a shock is not needed.
A shock dampenes the rebound / bouncing of the spring.

The air would also be like a air shock that can support weight...

See pic, maybe you can find the shock?
And the pics in post 25 just above this......

I am running a Model 26 Sno Way for 2nd year.

Bought it barely used from Dealer.

So far plow pushes snow for my Residential
Use.

Put it on before storm and take it right off afterwards.

They do this to prevent damage to the Trans or transfer case. Slow shifting because of the torque in 4L

I know this thread is old but only one I could find. I was interested in plowing with my air suspension but want sure. Well I have been with a 26R plow with no problems.
