Need some help...dumb air lift on Jeep

Hey guys, my daughter BF is trying to find a TJ. He his not having much luck.

Some nut job put an air bag suspension on this and claims he can adjust the ride height from 2 to 4"s. I am calling BS.


but I am not a suspension

Expert per se.

Can a pro look at these pics and give me your thoughts? I think he should run from it. Am I right?

Anytime I have heard any comments about air ride, everyone makes fun of it. Lets not to say there is a proper way to do it.

Can you tell from these pics if this is hokie or the real deal?

What you posted in the pictures are Air support bags (bumpstops). They are commonly used in the rear of trucks to level loads. They are NOT an offroad item.

Also judging by the t-case drop, stock swaybar links, among other items. The jeep was "quickly" lifted.

Hum...makes sense. So this is hokie...like having adjustable hockey pucks?

Do you think the claim of going from a 2 to a 4" lift makes sense? I can't see how he is correcting his geometry as he moves it up and down. Let alone bring able to get all corners the same.

He appears to have them on all four corners.

What would need to be done if someone bought this to make it correct? The current owner did not do the work.

I can't imagine if the axles are even correct.

Yes it is. It also has an Airock suspension that is shown in the video.

See my previous post above about yours in question.
