Can you remove speed limits on ride height?

Is there a way to do this? When at the beach and in knee deep sand sometimes I'd rather have the wheels spinning instead of lowering down. I've found my front has scooped the ground a few times and was almost torn off.

Re: Can you remove speed limits on ride height?

Are you saying that you are going fast enough in knee deep sand for the Jeep to drop down out of OR 1or2?

2 I believe. Cruising down the beach it's rock hard in some places then basically white powder sand that you sink into. Sometimes you just need all the power and speed you can get to make it through a 100yrd stretch of it. Not uncommon to see F-350's bottomed out over there.

See link below. This is the only way and is an aussie invention. The link only says for land rover discovery but does them for Jeeps too. I have one sitting at home but haven't had time to fit it yet. All plug and way installation. Can give you a bit more lift too depending on how you program it.

Re: Can you remove speed limits on ride height?

Well it's not the "only" way. It IS the only electronic way to change the ride height. You can do it mechanically if you make/buy custom suspension links. It's the same thing the Llams kit is doing, but you fool the sensor into thinking the suspension is at a different height, rather than tricking the computer into thinking the sensor is at a different height. Same concept, but ones mechanical, ones electronic.

Here's a link to a thread on it. Custom link thread.
The thread was started by people who were lowering their Jeeps, but same concept applies in reverse to lift it. I did mine (see posts #208, and #237 for specifics). My Jeep sits at OR1 height, when the computer/sensors show me at Normal height. So for your beach situations you can be at any speed and the suspension stays at OR1 height. If you press the button to air up to OR1, it goes up to the actual height of OR2. The up side here is that now you can run up to 50 mph at OR2 height, instead of having it lower back to Normal when you hit 20 mph.

Here's a shot of mine in "Normal" mode. As noted it actually is at OR1, but the Jeep thinks this is 1" lower than it actually is so it displays Normal height and won't lower when I speed up.



And in case you're wondering, the tires are 255/70/18, which is 2" bigger than the OEM tires, but still narrow enough to fit the spare under the floor in the cargo area.

Good information with adjusting the ride height speed setting and links.


I was taught that you were supposed to air the tires down in pressure while in sand. I know it can be a pain when you have to air them back up. However, it works and can keep you from getting stuck in the sand...just my 2 cents
