Lansing, Mich. – Air Lift Company has engineered two new load support solutions specifically developed for the redesigned suspension system on the 2014 Ram 2500 three-quarter-ton pickup truck chassis to improve ride quality, handling and safety when towing and hauling heavy loads
Coldwater, MI — 2013 marks the the beginning of a redesigned front suspension on the Ram 3500 4WD trucks. After a 10 year run of 4-link front suspensions on the 3/4-ton and 1-ton trucks, the 2013 1-ton models have converted to an all new radius arm front suspension. With this redesign there are a number of challenges that face aftermarket manufacturers developing new products.
BDS Suspension released a 2″ leveling kit to fit the new 2013 Ram 3500 4wd designed to eliminate the front end rake and allow for larger tires to be installed.
October 8, 2013, Auburn Hills, Mich. – It’s SEMA season. Today Chrysler Group LLC released sketches of select Mopar-modified vehicles that are headed for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The show takes place Nov. 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We developed these Mopar-modified vehicles to inspire ultimate customization,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “With catalogs full of proven, quality-tested performance parts and accessories, Mopar is a one-stop shop for factory-engineered personalization.”
MaxTrac Suspension recently added a new application to its extensive lineup of affordable 2WD lift systems. These new spindles fit the 2002-2008 Ram 2500/3500 2WD trucks, achieving 3.5 inches of lift and clearing many 35-inch-tall tire designations.
This simple bolt-on design requires no cutting or welding, keeping install time to less than 3 hours. The one-piece spindles are made from cast ductile-iron and have a black e-coat for corrosion protection. Also included are extended DOT-approved braided steel brake lines, instructions and all necessary hardware. MaxTrac backs the spindles with a limited lifetime warranty.
Ram Truck owners may now transform their truck into a Mopar-powered desert racer. Just a little more than one year after Mopar debuted its Ram Runner image vehicle to much acclaim at the 2010 Moab Jeep® Safari, the brand announced today announced details of its new Ram Runner kit for off-road enthusiasts.
“At Mopar, our image vehicles showcase potential directions that we may take and the new Ram Runner kit is a good example,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO, Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We saw the reception that Ram Runner received last year and quickly moved to offer kits that will allow off-road enthusiasts to transform their stock Ram 1500 into a desert racer.”
Today, Ram Trucks will be hosting a live chat session on at 6:00 p.m. EST. Our Ram engineers, along with our friends from Mopar, will be gathering around the table to discuss the topic of off-roading, including important details about our awesome Power Wagon and its off-road capabilities.
Mopar Performance will also be joining the conversation to answer questions about the mighty Mopar Ram Runner along with all its parts like lift kits, shocks, cold-air-intakes and other hardcore products.
These chats offer Dodge fans the opportunity to ask Ram engineers anything. You can participate in the chat in the window below:
