Ram Rebel Ground Clearance

The Rebel provides 10.3 inches of total ground clearance with its 4-corner air suspension system that allows drivers to adjust their ride height automatically or independently.  The suspension is very active and can level the load, so your truck bed’s weight is distributed evenly.   

Included with that ground clearance you get an off road suspension, locking rear differential, and a lot of internal upgrades as well.
