Question 2013 RAM 1500 Air Ride

I have a 2013 RAM 1500 crew cab Laramie 4x4 with the optional 4 corner auto leveling air ride suspension. Does anyone know of a lift that is now or ever will be available with the air ride suspension? Everywhere I look it is nothing but Springs or conversion from springs to air bags. Even if anyone knows of a spacer that can be used it would help!!!

Everyone I talk to loves the air ride suspension, but thought it would be an issue if I ever wanted to lift the truck. From what I hear, most remove the air rise suspension to lift their trucks. Seems like a waste of money at that point, so I ordered mine without it.

Right now the Air Ride must be removed if you want to lift and it has to be with some sort of front coil over lift, BDS for example.

I love having it since it lowers at highway speeds and I can tell that it gets 1-2 more MPG because of it. I tested that when I disabled the Aero Mode in the system for one trip. so it's great for that, and the auto leveling makes it nice when I load the bed up. I was just hoping that in a few years when I'm not doing so much highway driving I could lift it and put some 35's or even 37.5's on it.

Maybe in a few years they will have a system, but as of right now. You have the choice of stock and air ride, or rip it all out for a lift system and tires.

As said the only way you could lift is to remove the air and replace it with a coil over kit. That said I don't know if it's true, but a few weeks ago I read that someone is going to release a spacer sometime soon for a little bit of height for use with the air ride suspension.

The factory air-ride has rods of specific length on the heightsensors to determine the ride height... does procomp include new (longer) rods with the package? they will be needed...
