Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

27,000kms and QL is performing perfectly. Did a half way round Australia trip, lots of off road stuff.... OR2 Is awesome in sand. The wife loves carpark entry level. Vehicle self levels for towing. It is a worth while asset for me. Cheers

Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

I have an Overland on order.

I assume to raise to Off Road 2, your in low range on the t-case?

also what tires are you using, the Goodyear FOrteras or Michelins or did you buy dedicated snow tires?

Good to hear you wife likes it, always a good endorsement.

Now to present date there is 15,000 miles on it and no major problems. The air system has worked flawlessly. For us the air suspension works great. We at times get slot of snow here in WI and we live in the country and my wife who primarily drives the jeep travels into the twin cities for work. We do not get plowed out until late late day or more like the next day. Without the ability to lift the vehicle and the advanced 4x4 system of the jeep this would be dificult to leave home. Our neighbor has a limited without air and has gotten stuck in the deep snow pretty much built up under it. The air suspension is nice as you get a couple more inches of clearance. This vehicle is the best winter driving vehicle I have ever owed. I have yet to get stuck and can drive around large trucks and other suv's with ease.

Pulled out 5 vehicles near and in my neighborhood during a huge snow storm. Even a lifted 2500 with some good tires. Very happy with this vehicle.

You can go into OR2 at any point when your speed is less than ~25 MPH. You can go into OR1 at any point up to ~45 MPH. There are buttons on the center console to let you control the ride height. If you go over those speeds when you're in one of those modes, it will automatically kick you down to the next lowest mode. At ~60 MPH it will drop you down into AERO mode, which is between park and normal ride height (NRH)

You dont have to be in low gear for off road 2 but it will start lowering if you go over a certain speed, i dont remember the speed though

It is speed dependent in that it will lower when you reach a certain speed.
It is not dependent on the transfer case setting.
Changing the terrain mode may also lower it.
If you are at NRH (normal road height) just press the up button twice.

Ha, unless you're in Sport mode, which breaks the rules and forces Aero mode at all times (regardless of whether you wanted that or what you try to command it to do via ride height selector buttons).

Sport mode laughs at your preferences and then goes off and kicks a puppy.

Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

I really like the QL on ours. One question, though. I had the hood open for about 20 minutes trying to jerry-rig the spray nozzle. After about 10 minutes, the front end lowered some. Is this an automatic thing with the hood open, or just a normal operation that I had never noticed?

I put it in OR2 when I crawled underneath to find something that I had dropped. I'm not a slender guy, and it was really helpful!

Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

QL will auto-level the vehicle when off at the strangest times. It scared the crap out of me once when I was poking around in the garage 20 minutes after I turned the vehicle off.

I do this too, and it is quite convenient. However, it is incredibly important to ensure that if you do this that you put it in Jack Mode so that the QL system doesn't decide to lower while you're under the vehicle. There are cases documented of QL changing height while the vehicle is off, and while you may fit comfortably under OR2 that might not be the case in Entry/Exit or Normal.

I throw a pair of jack stands under the front jack points just for extra insurance.

On my '13, holding both the up and down buttons for 5-10 seconds disables the QL/autoleveling feature.

Eh? I can put it in sport mode, and it will try to go to aero mode right away, but if I push the buttons to raise or lower manually, it'll listen to those as well. I cruise around in sport mode in OR1 all the time
