WK2 air suspension

I want to lift my 2017 WK2 TH with air suspension. How can this be accomplished and not void my lifetime warranty?

Re: WK2 air suspension

Push the suspension level button to the off road 2 setting. No need for a lift kit when you are a big baller driving a new WK.

This is exactly the kind of response I knew I would get. And why I am so against this expansion to other platforms.

What will you guys say to the poor guy who wants to lift his FWD KL? I can already see the replies that it isn't a real Jeep and they are ugly. Blah, Blah, Blah.

Re: WK2 air suspension

As far as I am informed there is no lift you can buy for the QL system. This is a little dated but has some good information.

some more here

Re: WK2 air suspension

I will admit I know the answer to my question but I want to see what kind of information will be googled and spit out here. There is a way to lock out the suspension at any speed and to control it with a knob.

This was more to prove my point that this new expansion is not needed. The tech is out there for all these Jeeps.

Re: WK2 air suspension

You know you're laying it on thick there Bo, knock it off.

You have to expect sarcastic responses to a sarcastic thread, it was easy to see what your goal was from the get go.

Knowing nothing about Trailhawks other than in my opinion they are butt ugly,
I found the answer informative amd had no idea whatsoever they had air suspension.

Knowing that you are attempting to facetious and malicious i need to google the lifetime warranty part.

Re: WK2 air suspension

Build your own adjustable links to lower or raise normal ride height.
http://www.jeepgarage.org/f109/diy-h...ics-94371.html

Off-road 2 is only allowed up to 25MPH, then it auto lowers to ride height but you can fool it with adjustable links so normal ride height is taller.

Our eco diesel grand Cherokee rides terrible on the tall off road 2 height. The shocks are almost fully extended and top out on every small bump.

I like the air suspension, It rides good and is great for my wife towing but lame off road and needs more rebound.
