Depends on what you are looking for. I don't think either is better per say. They just accomplish something in a different way. The digital version is automatic adjustments, the analog is not. If a big person jumps in to your ride and you have the analog system you better hit the switches to adjust the pressure.
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.

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.

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.

OMG I ALMOST CAME LOOKING AT THESE PHOTOS!! I really like the wheel setup. Do you have anything similar in 5 spoke preferably with a lip on black? Looking for a set..
Glad you like them, this one photographed really nice for me :). The wheels pictured are the Ferrada Fr4s. We have something exactly like them in a 5 spoke (Ferrada Fr3) that is super deep concave and looks really awesome as well. Here is a link to the wheel package and a few pics. I have a couple pics of them on a SS in 20" to if needed.

Are you guys offering skid blocks for the bottom of the chassis or the owners laying frame completely? Honestly curious because I’d worry about scraping the powder coat off the chassis.


The stuff looks greats. Very cool

Thanks Shane, our kit sits about 3/8" off the ground so unless you lower it all the way on rough bumpy ground you won't scrape. If you have 22" wheels there will be a little more clearance there. Another option is we have a +1" kit that will have the same 6.5" range but will give you an extra inch of ground clearance and height.
