Certainly not mine thing, but I wouldn't call it stupid. Obviously somebody like the look. To each their own.

Hope this helps. It got my 2011 about 1.5 inches of lift and also leveled it out. Over 1000 miles and no issues and still has a great ride.
Also notice on the fronts the ends face the same and they face opposite on the rears.
ARWK2OL, how long did you make the rod for the fronts and back? I don't have the tools to cut them myself so i'll need the hardware store to do it for me.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Hey guys can I know where can I find these links for summit 2014, and what about the air suspension will it work normally ?

My understanding that the normal mode drive will be similar to the entry/exit ... and the entry/exit will be lower right ?

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

malshaali, this thread is about making the links, but the OP may be willing to make them for you. Changing the links basically changes what is "normal", either slightly lower or slightly higher. While some folks have "slammed" using this technique, practically, about an inch up or an inch down is the target and raising things doesn't change the upper limit for OR-II...it's a hard stop. So if you use replacement sensor links to lower about an inch, all modes will be able an inch down from OEM standard. That's how I have mine setup.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

So what you mean basically I can make my OR-II like the OR-I and OR-I and the normal as entry/exit ?

That's what I understood

@Shots , @overlanding was not saying the lowered Jeep was stupid...he was calling me stupid.
