I have wanted an air ride kit since day one. I saw a couple done before that were one off custom setups. So of course it is possible. I'm looking for a better ride than I have now and a better stance when parked. Although some of you would argue that air ride would sacrifice handling and driveability. This is not the case at all with a proper setup. I've had many adjustable suspension rides,and they have came a long way. So any input on getting someone to step up and make this happen for us? I volunteer my Jeep as a donor vehicle for a prototype or whatever,if that helps at all.
Please don't turn this thread into a pissing contest about pros and cons. If you don't like the idea,please don't post here.I appreciate that ahead of time.

The rear is the one to bag, the hard part is the front. I was talking to guys at ridetech and they were willing to develop and install a full setup on my Jeep. I didn't have the time to leave my Jeep at the time and when I had the time, I didn't have the coin. They told me around $8k at time, installed it broke down almost 50/50 split for parts labor. It was a 4 corner leveling system with their top digital controller

Great idea. subscribed...

If only someone could design a kit that is not crazy expensive. I know they would sell lots of air ride kits for the Jeep srt-8`s.
I personally love the idea of riding in the snow with an extra 2 inches of clearance, and when at the track drop it down to get the lowest center of gravity possible.

I have wanted this for a long long time.

It has never been a topic of discussion around here. We do have universal struts available if you would like to build your own kit.

This topic has come up a couple times...seems like it always gets back-burnered due to the time and finance aspects.

Would be cool if a company just did it, or a customer with some knowledge put together their own kit.

Hell even if if was 2" of difference. Up / down. So it doesn't damage anything or hurt performance. Normal ride height with eibachs and 2" lower.
