Unless they have the optioned air ride, which is usually in the higher trims, they all come with coils front and rear.So I am really digging the ram rebel and 17s, the ride is great
I crawled under the rental truck and it has coils front and back
I am not sure I'll be able to find a Rebel in my price range
What other Ram model trucks have coils front and rear?
Yep. Majority come with 5 link rear with coils and coilover front. Air suspension was the upgraded option for higher trim levels.All Ram 1500 trucks have coils? Not just specifically Rebel trucks
For sure. It's absolutely an appearance package, plus a few skids and bilstein 4600 shocks on some lucky models. Guess it all comes down to how you want the truck optioned out interior wise. There's only 1 trans, the 8spd, 3 gear sets 3.21, 3.55, 3.92, 2 suspensions, air or coil, and then all the trim packages.Good to know about the Ram suspension
Majority of the Rebel selling features just seem to be the badging and the interior coloring.......maybe some skid plates
I could get a used loaded Ram 1500, lift it 3" and have a cheaper truck than a rebel
I don’t know about Ford but FCA will not honor warranty on Canadian vehicles in the US. At least that was the case last year.Are you sure on this? I know FCA had some debacle about that. But thought it was cleared up. Maybe not. Any sources you can share?
I believe Ford’s warranty is good to and from Canada.
It's pretty much why I specifically went with the XLT. It had everything I wanted except a 36 gal tank which would have been a nice plus, but not a necessity. I liked the Lariat but push button start, leather and blind spot monitor wasn't woth an extra 5k. My only limit with towing is the 3.3L motor everything else is the same as the upgraded models. Anything above the XLT besides motor options is just trim levels..........and money.Oh, I understand that completely and it was a tradeoff I made knowingly. I think all the Lariat's I saw had leather seats which after 4 years with the Suburban, I decided I did NOT want.
Had I gone with the Ram 1500 I would have gotten the 4auto and heated cloth seats - but no rear locker. So there's always a tradeoff. I'm content with the choices I made.
And BTW I DID get the 36 gallon tank. That was one of my 'deal breakers'. No 36 gallon tank = no sale. My "must haves" were simple: 4wd, Ecoboost, 10 speed, E-locker, 36 gallon tank and heated seats. Built in trailer brake was a 'want but not a deal breaker' option, but mine came with it (also the trailer backup control which looks kind of neat but I haven't actually tried it out yet.)
I sometimes wish I had a console in the center instead of the folding bench seat but if I really want to I can swap the console in (there's a guy on the F-150 forum that did and it looks pretty clean.) I much prefer column shift to a console shifter though so I was glad to have a column shift.
Other quibble is on the backup camera. It's a little washed out. I don't know if I can increase the contrast or not (if there is a way to do that I haven't found it. Brightness, yes, but not contrast.)
One truck is from Newfoundland (got that) but which province is the other truck from?I found two nice Ram Rebel trucks that I am interested in
One is a Canadian truck and one is a New Foundland truck......both are in the US, any issues with them passing emissions or warranty related work?
Yep. Agreed. That pretty much what I was getting at. If the other vehicle is from the eastern provinces, I would probably avoid them.Obviously overly generalised...
Alberta would be OK, but I would be suspicious of anything used coming from Newfoundland. Thats a big block of salty stone facing a stormy Alantic ocean. Actually much of eastern Canada can be pretty corrosive.
