I'm worried for true connoisseurs like us that in few more years the only way to get V8 power will be with a HD truck.....

I'm going devils advocate here................Nearly every semi, and lots of straight trucks run air suspension anymore. Yes, more can go wrong than leaves, but large, high end bags are reliable. The Ram setup is nothing more than factory installed air helper springs, they do load leveling, but nothing for..........or degrade ride quality. Bag volume is the key to ride quality, and all the air helpers be it factory installed or aftermarket have very little. I know the 6.7 is now in the 650/750 trucks so I'm guessing Ford already has the air compressor worked out.

The best way for Ford to get me out of this truck is to offer REAR air ride on a dually. Coils are fine up front, I don't want air up there. Seen lots of complaints about ride quality on here as of late, and my opinion is that most of them should go buy an F150 to haul their groceries. But rear air ride, would put them in 90k duallies vs 65k F150s...............I have no issues with the ride of my truck, a hell of a lot better than the 2007 Ram dually it replaced.

All that said, if I can have an even better ride, and load leveling from the factory, I'm in. Come on Ford, rear air ride please!

We have a four link suspension on all of our Freightliner ambulances and the rear sits on huge bags that dampen the ride for the patient compartment. They are extremely heavy duty as we average around one busted bag every year out of 12 units and they afford the rear of the unit to squat every time the rear doors are opened to enable us to load the stretchers at the government required height. So each one of these units squat and inflate dozens of times per day and we have units with 260k miles on them running with no problems. We occasionally have an air line that cracks, which is a two minute fix, but other than that they have been extraordinarily dependable. One thing we do have on them is a belt ran air compressor that I would LOVE to see the Ford trucks have. They are amazing with how much air they put out. However, until the "tow rating" wars are over between the Big 3, I don't think you will see additions of compressors, bags and tanks on that sized trucks due to adding a few pounds to the truck and taking away their precious tow ratings. I mean come on, with the new trucks ability to tow 35-36k pounds, I don't believe it will be long before a new class driver's license will be added to cover these trucks while towing, just so they can get more revenue!
I will say that since I put the bags on my dually, the truck ries better with 12 pounds of air in them. You can lower them to the lowest recommended 5psi, and the truck rides a bit more harshly as it is just riding on the truck springs, but inflate to 12psi and the truck rides remarkably well. I too realize that this entire thing is subjective. Also, my '10 F350 rode better with the same amount of air in them.I also work part time at a service that uses only F350s without bags and the ride in the rear of those units actually hurts!! For the attendant to sit directly above the rear duals on the benchseat and hit a bump in the road is actually painful for healthy individuals, not to mention those of use with spinal problems.

Actually, Her kind is the biggest gift to the Republican party and the conservative mind-set. She needs to keep spewing her swill right up until 2020!

Of course AOC's "Green New Deal" is ridiculous but the problem I see is that she is getting a lot of air time and a lot of people, mostly younger, like her. She's certainly naive to the way of Washington politics, but she is persistent and determined, and seemingly pretty confident.

Frankly, I don't think she should be underestimated. Right now, she's a bigger threat to her own party than to Republicans but I think in time the traditional Democrats are in trouble when the new wave of younger, much more radical socialists attempt to take over the party.

It bothers me that no democratic women would stand during the SOTU address when the President wanted a bill to prevent 3rd trimester abortions. Any woman who could kill their child during that period is truly heartless, let alone at any time during pregnancy in my opinion. It bothers me that most democrats stayed sitting when Trump announced the US would "never be socialist." The fact that they remained seated tells me there are a fair number of persons in Congress that would be OK with a socialist government in the US. This really sickens me and concerns me with the future of our great nation. I'm no radical, but there may come a day when Americans who think alike and value freedom and liberty may have to stand together...

While not everyone will want this, I think it's an amazing mod! $200 all in and no splicing according to what I'm told. Waiting for the details on part numbers etc.

I think so too Tyler. The price seems very reasonable too. I don't know the details. Perhaps it's a used shifter? IDK. For 2 bills, I think is a worthwhile swap.

If you find a remote Forward/Reverse to put on my snowplow control, I'll take one.
