Are you ready to transform your Ram 1500 into one of the exclusive AEV Recruits for enhanced offroad prowess without degrading the on-road ride like some other suspension systems deliver? You can now build your own utilizing this DualSport SC Suspension System.

That's right, where the crew at AEV have long been known for their Jeep lineup followed closely by their Ram 2500 and 3500 kits, after arduous testing, now have a system specifically for Ram 1500's that simply annihilates the competition in regards to the level of engineering and kit components.

AEV's 4" DualSport Suspension for Rebel and Air Ride equipped Rams maintains the outstanding features and function of the stock Air Ride suspension for Ram 1500 all while increasing ground clearance off-road, preserving excellent handling on pavement, and making room for larger tires. As with every AEV DualSport Suspension, AEV has invested countless hours of development time and OE-level testing to innovate the highest quality aftermarket lift kit for Ram 1500's Air Ride IFS suspension.

AEV components seamlessly integrate with the high-performance IFS Air Ride found on Ram 1500/Rebel models, retaining the OE front air struts and rear airbags to preserve factory ride quality and automatic/manual height adjustment functionality. Suspension steering and geometry are maintained and enhanced on the lifted vehicle with AEV's innovative military grade A206 T4 aluminum tall steering knuckle and CNC aluminum front driveshaft spacer, rear geometry correction and upper control arm brackets, and custom-tuned Bilstein 5100 rear shocks. Vital undercarriage protection on rocky trails comes from a 4mm-thick contoured stamped steel skid plate.

For maximum performance, AEV recommends 35" tires and aftermarket wheels (see specs below) for this suspension system. Add the optional AEV ProCal Module, which adjusts the vehicle's speedometer when running larger-than-stock tires.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
  • Is it okay to lift a truck with electric steering? Yes, if it is done right. AEV's suspension system maintains OE steering geometry to ensure that there is no additional stress on the electric steering box.
  • If I want to lease a truck, is this suspension something that can be taken off prior to the truck being turned in? Yes! AEV designed this suspension system to minimize the amount of permanent modifications being done to the truck. Only one hole is lost during the installation process.
  • What is the purpose of the front skid plate? AEV designed the front skid plate to not only provide protection, but to also serve as an integral part of the suspension system. On 2013+ Ram 1500 trucks, the front differential is mounted to the engine mounts. While this is perfectly acceptable in stock form, this is not ideal for a lifted application. AEV relocates the front differential from the engine mounts to the chassis by way of the skid plate, allowing for much more favorable CV angles. Additionally, AEV's skid plate is stamped out of 4mm thick steel. The stamping process not only strengthens the steel but also allows for a more precise fit without hard angles, maximizing front axle ground clearance.
  • Why does AEV retain the factory air struts and air springs? AEV retains the factory air struts and air springs to provide the best possible ride quality and payload capacity for your specific truck.
  • Many other aftermarket suspension systems use steel or iron steering knuckles. Why does AEV use an aluminum steering knuckle? The factory steering knuckles are aluminum for a reason - to limit unsprung weight. AEV utilizes A206 T4 aluminum steering knuckles which are a much higher grade than the OE steering knuckles but do not add all the extra weight of steel or iron steering knuckles. This weight reduction translates into better ride quality and handling.
  • Will my speedometer be off after I install larger tires? Yes, but don't worry - AEV's optional ProCal Module will properly calibrate your speedometer after installing larger tires
  • How long does it take to install this suspension system? An experienced shop or mechanic should be able to install this suspension in 10-12 hours.
  • Does this suspension system require any exhaust or driveline modifications? No, the AEV DualSport Suspension does not require any exhaust or driveline modifications.
  • Can I reuse my factory 20" wheels? No, this suspension system is not compatible with ANY Ram 1500 OE wheel.
  • What is the biggest tire I can install with this suspension system? We recommend a 35x12.50 (or metric equivalent) tire, mounted on 18" or larger aftermarket wheels
  • Why does the AEV 4" DualSport Suspension System only lift my truck 2.75" in the rear? The rear is lifted 2.75" to remove some of the Ram 1500's factory rake, which makes the rear sit considerably higher than the front

Will the factory air ride still work with the lift that I am able to additionally raise and lower the truck on top of the 4 inches I get from the lift??

This kit will retain all factory height adjustment functionality. Any adjustments you can make now on the truck in regards to height will be retained when this lift is installed.- TL
