I will be eagerly watching what more videos and info you put out about this, I’ve been contemplating a lift but haven’t figured out what I want yet. I love the versatility of this option and am definitely intrigued. I love rock crawling but am nowhere near the level of Cindy & Ed so I will be curious to see how this kit stands up to the kind of wheelin you guys do. If it stands up to that I will definitely consider going with this kit but I will not try installing it myself 🤣
Well, I hope we're able to demonstrate and show how it performs in all kinds of conditions and well enough that it helps you to experience it virtually and make a decision based on it.

Very cool. My parents have an LR3 and a new Discovery, both with the air suspensions and I love them both. LR3 has 215k on it, air suspension still works like new so I love the tech. I'm curious how the flex is on the JT one. Do you know if it's cross linked side to side so that as one wheel compresses the air from that bag releases to the other side to help push it down? With solid axles there's probably not a need to push it to the other side, but releasing the pressure should help. The LR3 is cross linked to help the IFS/IRS mimic solid axles (onside goes up forces the opposite down), does it very well. The WK2 air suspension is not cross linked and that's why their flex is terrible.

From what I understand, they just act like springs and there is no need to push air to one side or the other. I hope you check back to see our testing of it off road. We'll try to cover what we can to help demonstrate what it can and can't do.

Great video. This company really did a good job of rolling this out. Each corner is adjustable with your phone. The kits comes with stuff to air up your tires. All made in the USA with a very fair price. Sounds like a very long warranty life. Dude seems passionate about this.

Hope it sells well, I know this setup will work great for a lot of different wheelers out there.
Glad you enjoyed the video and yes, Mark wouldn't have gotten back into the industry if he weren't genuinely excited about a product like this. Certainly, he doesn't need the job. And, I do think it will work great for a lot of people out there.

Okay, I looked into this and I'm told that setting #1 and #2 are locked at the factory. Only #3 is programmable. On a JT, the kit is intended for a 37" tire but in talking to ACCUAIR, they seem very open to the idea of different options being made available. I will pass on your desire to run 35's to them.

I'm at stock height on my Rubi and running 35's. If I go to this I'll step up to 37"- 39", haven't decided yet.

Unlike most of you lucky people, I don't live close to anything difficult or technical. There is Jeep badge trail in Indiana that they claim to be a 5, yeah not so much. If you're there while it's raining or just after a heavy rain, then it gets difficult because it's so slick.

You guys have Red Bird. That'd be pretty tough in the rain and in a JT though.

Okay, just learned a couple of things that might interest some of you.

1. There is a JK kit already being made and they are just waiting on FMVSS 126 compliant handling certification. They are expecting to get it in February.
2. You can actually make a 5% adjustment to all the settings and have them saved in the presets.

I will share more as I learn them :)

I for sure will be waiting to see how it does in your testing. Love the YouTube channel, I'll be waiting!

One question I had was, do you lose anything when installing this? Meaning do you have to cut or make major modifications to metal brackets, ect? Maybe I missed it in the video

Any issues with factory (including extended) warranty when adding this??
Warranties and whether or not they honored are ALWAYS dependent on your dealership. The single best thing you can do to help ensure you'll get covered for whatever, is to become a CUSTOMER. As in, do regular oil changes and such at your dealership. This alone will make your dealership fight for you instead of telling you that your warranty has been voided.
