Here is what I know. Off road mode is meant to be a creeper mode only. The air suspension is maxed out in off road mode and the ride is extremely stiff so go I g much faster than 25 mph isn't go I g to be a very nice ride anyways. I'm learning exit/entry and off road aren't very useful 95% of the time in this vehicle.

so off road mode is just a waste of air pressure, so what does the vehicle drive in most of the time.
and enter and exit mode, does it lower itself to this, or can you keep it higher up in the aero mode?

How many modes are there?

you activate entry/exit mode. either in cab or key fob. when and if key fob will let you. sometimes it doesn't do it.

you drive in normal mode, then when you hit 62 mph you go BACK TO THE FUTURE....I mean aero mode to save gas.

just a guess, but what if you went to off road mode, then unplug the compressor? will that leave it in which mode you want to try driving in? Unplug the compressor on passenger side by the rear bumper.

I only use entry mode for the wife. I use aero on highway. Normal everywhere else and used off-road one time while going over a washed out road

Can you switch from aero to normal mode while driving? is it true once the truck breaks 62 mph it goes down to aero mode?

BCT, what do you mean? aero mode burns more gas ?
Jokingly speaking... Overall the Rebel's gas mileage (for me) has not been the greatest. Although I do admit I have a heavy foot and love to hit the HEMI pretty hard. I didn't buy the truck for mileage purposes anyway.

I do like the look of normal mode and especially off road mode. I wish we could select the level we wanted and it would stay. Entry/Exit mode is cool for loading and unloading as well.
If I had my choice I would leave it in Off Road mode all the time

So basically. The vehicle has four settings it can raise or lower itself to. But you can lock t in any one setting? Maybe they should if not put in an air suspension system and just lifted it high up like the power wagon has it so basically drive in off road mode all the time.

If you don't have aero mode selected on in settings it'll stay locked into any mode you manually press in the center console except off road which lowers no matter what when you hit 26mph

Anyone come up with any mods to lock in off road mode over 25mph? Off road mode is so useless in this truck, who goes off roading under 25mph

Really? I don't know what kind of off roading you do, but where I'm at, there is no way you could go 25MPH unless you have a death wish, or hate your truck. I can't imagine any situation where you can be going 25+ and actually need the extra height of off road mode, but that's just me.

I shut my aero mode off 3 days after picking up the truck. I was fooling around with the settings and found out you can shut aero mode off.
