This type of system would probably be the best for making a RL better off-road, but it's cost prohibitive for the aftermarket. Honda could design and develop such a system and intigrate it into the truck with success I think. As for what would need to be modified...nothing really. The idea of the air system you speak of is that you retain your stock ride height and suspension settings for when you're on the road, but when you're in rough terrain going slow and don't need the plush suspension and low ride heigh, you can jack the thing up a bit to gain a bit of clearance. Many, many vehicles have such a system. The Toureg and Cayenne both have it, as do all modern Land Rovers, and I think the Lexus GX470 might even have it. The Grand Cherokee might be equipped with something such as that as well...but I'm not sure (and I don't care, I can't stand the new Grand Cherokee, and I'm a Jeep guy). It could work very well if designed with care and if the computer system that controlled it was modelled after the LR3's (the only computer system in a 4x4 that actually does more good than bad on the trail).zero said:I hope someone comes out with an air suspension system for creating lift. The LandRover LR3 has a very interesting system. You 'dial in' the amount of lift that you need for the particular situation. If I am not mistaken, the LandRovers all all independent suspension. What I don't know is how the rest of the vehicle suspension would need to be modified for an air suspension system to work properly.

Hard water spots. Limeaway will take them right off. Don't get it on your paint. Wear gloves. Rinse well.DogFan said:Does anyone have water spots on the front windshield that will not go away? I have great paint but the front glass only is bad, any suggestions
Hey DF, what are doing here? What's water spots on windshield have to do with Thule Fit Kit?
