Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

Ben, I'm not interested in the slammed look, but I am interested in being able to select at least one position lower than Normal driving height. Without seeing a vehicle this way, I guess I'd like it lower c. 1/2" in front and 3/4 to 1" in the rear, at the flip of the proverbial switch.

That I already have setup. Ill take a picture and load it up tomorrow.
I have 3 settings so far-
Extreme low (still developing)
Super sport (approx 20mm lower than sport mode)
Or1+ (basically or1 but can drive at any speed)

Cheers
Ben

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

That's fantastic Ben!
My '14 limited with QL is due end Oct, do you think your kit will be available by then?
Will it be easily installed by owner or will it take an electrician/jeep mechanic?
Does it work through existing QL buttons and digital readouts?
Cheers

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

BTW I've recently discovered that the Sport mode lowers the vehicle maybe a half-inch, but that's still maybe a half-inch too high in the rear.

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

I would love to keep my wk2 in OR1 height at any speed
If I just wanted this option plus the stock ability to go into OR2, do you think you can make a kit available?

Would it be a plug and play install?

That can be done. But you would still get 3 settings in the kit.
I'm thinking the 3 settings might be
Extra extra low

Sport low (slightly lower than sport mode (even the rear also)

And OR1 - drivable at any speed (at own risk)


Cheers ben

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

The thing is... I have big tires and any lower than normal ride height and aero would start scraping the inside of the tires..

So I guess I would just make sure not to go into the lower modes..

I would be the first to PayPal you for a kit that can keep OR1 at any speed and also still be able to use OR2 when needed..

Please let me know! I wouldn't mind even paypaling you to receive a functional but not pretty beta..

What size tyres do you have. I have now got falken wildpeak a/t 275/55/20 and on the extra extra low mode. The guard just covers the tyre. The switch has 3 positions so you will just not use that mode.
Here's a pic of mine in extra extra low

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

Looks nice

Same size tires nitto terra grapplers 275/55/20
When I look at the inside of the front wheel well there is like a quarter of an inch between some metal knuckle? Bolt? Looking like thing attached to suspension.. And the top/side of the inside of the tire..

I assumed the lower it gets the closer that knuckle gets to the tire so I didn't even want to attempt park mode thinking it would really mess up my tires...

Anyways I could be wrong and maybe the metal knuckle bolt doesn't get closer or further from the tire the lower or higher the vehicle gets..

Regardless, I live in the panhandle of tx and EVERYONE has a lifted SUV or truck..
Most I am at equal seat height? Shoulder height? with when in OR2, but OR1 will suffice but oh boy am I tired of being surrounded by cars taller than mine )

When can you have a unit for me? It doesn't have to look pretty some wiring diagram and instructions would probably be all I need

Thanks!!

It is still in development. Should have final parameters that I'm happy with in the next 2 weeks. I can have or2 setup so that you can drive on it, I could even test and see how much higher it will go before you get suspension fault then bring it back a little. I wouldn't recommend driving on anything higher than or2 though.
I might setup or2 also as I like driving at that height with the tyres I have now.
Next project is making some rock sliders

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

Hello Simmo,

Like the look of the extra, extra low height, how much lower is it from normal ride height if that has 8.1 inches of ground clearance.

Also, at this ride height, do you have much suspension travel or has it been limited in some way. I would imagine to get it to this helight you would have had to make some mechanical changes and not just let the air out of the Air Jacks as this would give a very sloppy ride and possibly cause some damage to the Air Jacks.

Interested to hear your comments and looking forward to seeing the price of your kit and what it involves.

Regards.......JosephR
