Default 2013 Air Suspension Override

Has anyone out there devised a way to keep the truck from lowering itself or is this just a pipe dream?

I'm sure someone could make a nice chunk of change if they designed something to prevent it.

Just wishful thinking I guess..

By lowering itself do you mean the Aero mode on the highway or the self leveling feature when it detects weight in the bed? Aero mode can be turned off but I don't recall hearing about a way to defeat the auto leveling.

I also have heard of no way to keep it from lowering itself from the off-road modes once you pass a certain speed.

Someone posted something on here awhile back about a company working on a solution for this but I never heard more about it.

Just talking about it lowering itself from the off road heights.

If you mean aero mode on highway put it in tow/haul mode that will block it from lowering

If you are asking about using the system to give you a permanent 2inch lift no.... you are better off going lvling kit. Air suspension was not meant for this also the ride gets spongy at the offroad 2 height wouldnit want to be traveling down road and have a panic manuver.

I have no problems with the height lowering at greater speeds (off road 2 -> 1, 1-> normal, and aero) I just wish they could default back to at least Off-road 1 and I think that is something completely feasible because you're not overriding any safety features you're just saving yourself hitting the button every time.

That all said, have the Jeep guys got something? If they don't by now we'll probably be waiting a while, if we get something at all.

Mine's pretty much dead on. Might be because I've been used to staring at my raked 11 for the past couple years.
