Yea-it's a brick!It did better when I disconnected the heavy duty rear sway bar.And yea it's still a brick.Sorry that many people can only look at the video and tell me all the things that it can't do
Of course it does have it's limitations,BUT it has gotten me just about anywhere that I wanted to go.As with any 4x4 YOU need to pay attention to what you can and can't do.So much depends on how you approach things.So far I've had it on the beach,in snow,off road at Hollister hills and the Jeep trails in Sedona And have yet to be towed out.So while I'm out there having a blast offroad-You can sit there in your chair and dis it all you want
We can still get the parts from MB-Not from the OEM.That situation tripled the cost!So John set off on his own and developed a system that is very similar to what Mantra has done.You can see the new setup on the site.I actually think his design is better than what I have.No black box,No pumps,No switches.It is a completely manual system.All you do is pull a lever(on the fly).The suspension is fully
adjustable on the fly
.AND it's going to cost a bit over 20k.Please NO whining about the price!It is what it is and no one is going to get rich doing it.
you want a 9"lift and a straight Ford axle,divorced transfer case,wheels with spacers.Go see Whitefeather!
