I cannot speak to how the QL system rides or operates since our Jeep was a steel spring car. I can speak to how our Jeep rides and how the system operates and what you say here doesn't apply to our setup...

We don't have 220psi available and we're getting more lift than a QL Jeep. I'm no engineer or expert air suspension guru...I only know about our Jeep.

Likely because even though the system is pressurized to 220psi, it is not sending the full 220 to each strut/bag. At 'full height' it is probably at 150psi lets say. There needs to be a safety factor calculated into the system. If it would reach equilibrium from tank to strut, the compressor would never stop running. The compressor moves just enough pressure to get the vehicle to a specified height, via the feedback from the height sensors.


Hence why I say to sit at a certain height, the strut/bag needs the same pressure whether its oxygen or nitrogen. That's how air springs work. Obviously the more weight you apply, the higher the pressure needs to be to maintain the same height. This is why when you load a trailer down, the Jeep will automatically transfer more pressure to the springs to maintain the height in the factory setup.


Nitrogen is used instead of oxygen because it doesn't expand/contract with change in temperature as much (which would undesirably change the pressure and increase/decrease spring rate) which is advantageous in a closed system.


Not trying to argue, just giving readers food for thought.

Neither am I and realize it can be difficult to discern tone in text.

I also can appreciate you're knowledgeable about air suspension systems but I have to think you must know you're comparing apples to oranges when you're comparing the QL system to our Accuair system...if that is what you are trying to do?

Did you paint the wheels? If so what color did you use? Any info is appreciated bc I love the way those wheels look.

Painted an accent color used on the Hellcat wheel option...brass monkey.

These wheels have -12 offset, they will stick out quite a bit on a stock body flare....FYI

Behind there is a 10,000lb Smittybilt X20 with wireless remote...although to use the remote you have to toggle a switch on the solenoid, which is hidden behind the bumper...I'll be working on this...for now the controller is tucked in next to the master cylinder.



Is the fog light trim your own fabrication ?

If you're asking about the black...yes, but it's just vinyl.

Is that something someone could do themselves at home or do you need a special something for cutting ?
