Today I was using the bed of the truck to help me get some height so I could hang the Christmas lights. After my fat ass jumped up on the bed, I heard the air suspension starting to activate and low and behold, the truck started lifting up. I don't know if I should be happy that it really works, or depressed that I'm so fat that my weight required it to auto level o_O

In any case, it was great to see that it worked!

I had the same experience while loading the bed for a hunting trip after Thanksgiving. When I jumped in it adjusted and when I was unloading it adjusted again. Kinda cool!

Just curious, what setting were you on and did you install the cover with the engine running switched off?
I'll be installing a cover soon

The engine was off and I think the height setting was aero.
Well good may be I am lighter than I thought...mine didn't adjust when I was sitting in the bed last week doing the swingcase install

I took a hammer out of the back and it levelled in aero mode.

I often park in a spot in my driveway that has about a low grade to it. Everytime I do that, lock the truck and walk away, I hear the autoleveling kick on. Takes it about 10-20 seconds from the time I end up on the grade.

Loading and unloading lumber, mulch, and other things in the backend will kick it on, too. Had friends ask what that noise was when we all climbed in one day.

Dad had a big old Buick Electra about 20 years ago. It would randomly autolevel in the driveway even after being parked for hours with no one near it. One time I was riding one of our horses, a rather skittish one, in the driveway when the car did its thing. Even though we were 10 feet from it, the horse still shied and it always gave me trouble when that car was near again.

I took out a case of water ... 15lbs? And I heard the truck re-level itself. Curious how sturdy the air suspension systems are? I have been doing so much in-town driving that the suspension is constantly moving around. Normally it is smooth, but sometimes it will bump around a bit. Anyone have any issues? I want to level it, but am afraid it will void warranty?

Leveling seems like a pain. And if you've ever driven around in Off Road mode, it's stiff as can be. Just my opinion.

My plan is to wait until the air suspension breaks out of warranty, and put a coil over 6" lift on it.

Leveling with air suspension is simple, and inexpensive. You simply need to change the length of either the front or rear links in order to level the truck. You can buy adjustable links like these and set the front height where you want. If you're worried about warranty, simply swap the stock links back on if you need to go to the dealership and they'll never know. Only $85...
