5 of 5 Well sorted kit May 4, 2022
Reviewer: Billy S. from Okc, OK United States  
I purchased my rear air ride kit from the pros at Airkewld because after spending months searching I couldnt find a nicer better sorted kit anywhere. There are a few kit from bolt on to weld on out in the world. But this kit from Airkewld was the most complete for the money that I could find. Once I received my kit I made a simple unboxing video to show the kit as you receive it. I must say that the kit is very well packaged and all the components look great. I was expecting the gauge of the steel on the mounts to be thicker, but give the H beam design after you weld the three parts together that would be overkill. Everything in this kit looks awesome and well designed. Sadly I am a few weeks away from staring the install process but I believe that this kit will work awesome. I am very pleased with the quality of the components in this kit and will recommend it to anyone.

Reviewer: Allen from Iowa  
The only thing that could be better with this kit is if the metal pieces were powder coated (cosmetic is all).  Other than that.  Top notch.

4 of 5 Great quality product! July 30, 2019
Reviewer: Sam Donohoo from Pittsfield, IL United States  
got the kit in a few short weeks, great quality metal and hardware. only down side was the instructions included, very difficult to understand with little pictures. I suggest downloading the pdf file so you can see the pictures in color. Brackets did need some notching and fabricating because all bodies are different and it is required. all in all great product, bug officially lays frame and easily goes up around 6 inches in travel.
