Build was completed in April of this year by God Speed Rides in Sarasota and taken to a few Jeep events in the southeastern United States. Vehicle is garage kept, adult owned and driven, non-smoking and no kids. Vehicle is meticulously maintained and adored. I'm selling so we can start our next project.

This Jeep was a steel spring car converted to air springs, this is NOT a Quadra-Lift equipped vehicle. Our air suspension provides 6"-7" of range and 2"-5" of lift over a stock Grand Cherokee.

Please feel free to contact me direct with any questions or to schedule an inspection.

There are a couple of options but I'm keeping it tight 'til we decide.

Like it's on A I R.

When the system (accuair) is in program mode it determines what the suspension's physical limitations are then uses 80% of that to preset (3) ride height settings...
  • setting 1-10% from the bottom
  • setting 2-50%
  • setting 3-10% from the top
That's just the start...the system is infinitely adjustable and manually programmable to personal preference.

Hope that helps.

Re: White Rhino a 2014 EcoDiesel on 35's

I was referring to how it rode as in stiff, bouncy, soft, rough, etc. The factory front struts are already under-dampened with factory tires/wheels so I would expect it to be bouncy in rebound with heavy 35's. The rear with bilsteins will be stiffer than factory shocks.


With a factory air setup, the ride is super stiff at OR2 and it's almost maxing out the upper control arms. But you have aftermarket so it may ride a little better.

Re: White Rhino a 2014 EcoDiesel on 35's

We are far from factory...

Factory QL is a closed loop system, ours is open.
Factory front air struts are charged with nitrogen to 220psi, were using them as a traditional air strut with maximum pressures of 200psi.
Factory stamped UCA were replaced with RRO UCA increasing suspension range.
Bilsteins in the rear are a perfect match for the Accuair system settings.

Settings 1 and 3 are (naturally) tighter but not bouncy.

The GENIUS behind this setup is the INFINITE adjustment available to fine tune the suspension on the FLY.

Driving is believing my friend!

Re: White Rhino a 2014 EcoDiesel on 35's

That makes no difference, the factory nitrogen setup is a closed system that transfers pressure from the tank to the struts/bags in a much faster fashion because it's high pressure and doesn't have to wait for a compressor to pump up. The struts still need the same pressure to sit at the same height regardless if it's air or nitrogen. The suspension would ride the exact same from an open to closed system.
