Nice setup but my issue is , if that is a metal plate wrapped around those tanks to protect it against rode debris ( if so why not cover the ends of the tank also ) & theres NO protection against anything striking the AIR connections at the end of the tank , if something strike those fitting while driving , wont air escape and the slinghot will slowly lower ( or either slam down )..........
The plate is 16 gauge cold rolled steel and is made to support the tanks. It will offer some protection but is not intended to be a skit plate for big things hitting them. The middle that is open to the road is covered by it and the ends of the tanks and air lines are covered by the slingshots front end. Honestly if you hit something big enough to cause a leak you are going to have much bigger problems to worry about than an air leak in the system.
Ok, I'm picking up what you are putting down. Yes, the digital system is quite nifty.... the $1,000 price hike though... I'm not so sure it's worth $1,000. I may wait until they have a more "integrated look" rather than just Velcroing a wireless controller onto your dashboard.
Both systems are great. Like wraith said, the analog is basically manual. If you want to raise all three shocks at the same time you just press and hold three buttons. Just like the windows in a car. If someone gets in you adjust the air pressure with the switch to compensate if needed. We had that on our fist custom and it works great. The digital has saveable presets for height and is very very accurate. When you turn the key on it automatically comes up to ride height and self levels, to change the height you press one button, etc...We have a full video going over some of the highlights.
As far as the controller, it can be mounted basically anywhere and there are pre tapped screw holes for it to be permanently mounted. The velcro works great because you can take it off easily for rain/washing the ss and once the ss is lowered and there is no controller its going to be much harder the steal the ss. The velcro is simple and works great but there are other options for mounting.
That would be great if you mounted it somewhere else but there is zero extra room around the controller were we normally mount it (pic for reference). For the 2018s we have a new mount we are including as the start button is right there.
