I think you're just reaching for reasons not to like this mod but at the end of the day some mods aren't pleasing to others... And that's OK.
Yeah...I have not had a spare in any vehicle for....ummmm.....11 years.

The airride system is awesome and very practical. If Roadwarrior doesnt believe me....look at the suspension of 90% of the big rigs driving millions of miles each day or Cadi's and lincolns...the list goes on. Rv's.....harleys...etc

Re: well she's on air.

Figures Cali would get to it first lol. I may have to wait it out till more kits become available, unless I plan a cross-country road trip. Damn that looks sick, love the hood too. Thanks for the info and pics. @clstech thanks for the IG breadcrumbs.

Question, is it the way you have it set or thats as far as it goes in the rear? Because the front looks like it tucks more, just want to know before I move forward.

Re: well she's on air.

I think it's cool if for no other reason than to show it can be done. The workmanship looks nice. Please update us with your thoughts as you ride around longer.

That's as low as the rear will go. We even removed the bump stops. I'm going to have to do some modding to the the rear to go down as far as the front.

Saudi.SRT8 is a name known to all
Two thumbs up (Y)

The Car looks sick.

Its the one thing we are missing in our SRT ... no Air Ride.

Guys who drive there cars like I do, would appreciate the functionality of raising the car while driving off road (plz no bullshit about our cars R for on-road use only )

Again ... Congrats on the new install .

Its on my bucket list now.
