Check out the new front suspension control arms. Air suspension? Are those 19.5" tires?

Wow that rear is high off the ground. Not good for fifthwheel towing.

I was predicting the fish gills on the hood were going to be removed on the next refresh, but I guess I was wrong.

It's clear that RAM will go to a large one piece swing arm like Ford, but I'm not sure I see an air spring. Kinda looks like it may on the front suspension but again it could be the limited view.

Very nice! Cann't wait. Those are the same wheels and tires as my 2011 has, 17'' black steel rims (without the covers on).

I agree. My '05 Hemi powered HD didn't have a resonator all cockeyed in there like that. Had a sweet sound too. The long arm suspension out front looks like a good thing.

Looks to me like they've narrowed the wheels to about 5", on that black dually. Stupid not to use more. Back in the '70s, you could get dually wheels that were 6.75" wide.
