I can't figure it out.......and I've googled "Rebel Suspension" with no answers. Does it mean the Rebel 2500 has a Rebel "air suspension", or just offroad shocks/etc? I also know that the 2500 can have the rear leveling air suspension option also, so I'm trying to figure out what is going on. Ram should do a better job of explaining it.

Its an aesthetics thing. Looks much more like a power wagon than a normal 2500.

I can't answer your question but I can say that I am very happy with my 2023 Rebel 2500 with factory air. I haven't had a chance to put the TT on it yet but I'm looking forward to it.

Update: I talked to a dealer configuration guy, and "Rebel Suspension" just means offroad shocks. The air suspension is extra.

Good to hear. I have the air suspension on my Rebel 1500, and I think it's great....especially for towing (levels out the truck nicely, even with WDH). I'm curious...what is your payload rating on your 2500 Rebel? (the yellow/white sticker in the drivers door jam).

Just to be clear, the full air suspension like what is on your half ton is not available for the 2500/3500. The 2500 gets bags only in the rear, and the 3500 gets bags in combination with leaf springs.
