Pretty pricey. Will you get that much benefit from it, or will it just be something to play with? I saw one posting on this board a few weeks ago with picture on Jeep with this type of equipment and it looked great for off-camber stuff. Just don't know how practical it would be at that price.

1. Yep, it's pricey,
2. But it maybe a cure for one problem I can think of on a TJ..
3. Wheel hop...
4. Wheel hop's often caused by rapid transfer of weight front to back.
5. This is due to the spring settings allowing the front to "flex"...
6. So the off camber, on hills, etc... the Jeep does just that...
7. And a weigh imbalance is set up,
8. Causing axle wrap and wheel hop.
9. But is the "cure" worth it?
10. Not for me... it's too priecy...
11. Would I install one if it were given to me?
12. YES... [*] Free is good [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [*] A man can't have too many gadgets [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: AirRock Kits what do ya\'ll think?

I think it would be pretty cool. You could adjust your center of gravity and ground clearence with the push of a buttom. But the only thing that I think would cause a problem is that if your offroading you want more ground clearence so you fill up the airbags. Since the airbags are filled up the wouldnt compress very well which i think would severly limit articulation. Im not sure if im right on that but it makes sense. As far as the cost goes i dont know if it would be worth it.
