To be fair to Harpaal, other people (including me) have posted details of his Hydro suspension Jeep in the 4x4 section. He has never stated it is for off road use and more than likely it is mainly used on road.

So why keep harping on about it being useless for off road use when quite possibly it was never mean for off road use ?

Harpaal please clarify whether you use the vehicle offroad and if you hydro system was put in place for cosmetic reasons (like the low riders in the USA) or to try and enhance off road ability off the jeep.

Id like to chip in too and say that i dont think harpaal intended to do the hydraulic suspension for offroad purposes and neither has he ever stated the same, im sure it was done up on the line of american lowriders and to do something new on a platform that doesnt have too many takers. Lets be appreciative of that fact. It would have been a different story had he said that his car is more capable going off the road than you big truckers out here

thanks bro.. this is what i meant . i never said that my jeep is for offroad purpose.. i made this jeep just bcoz nobody has done this before.i made each nd every part with my hands (not a single part imported). so instead of appriciating some members criticize only on the base of offroad ability. pl consider other aspects also.

Thanks bigman.. i have no hard feeling for anyone. but i just wanted to clear my point.. jeep can do offroad but it was not made for this. its a lowrider only for city drive..
i dont wanted to be rude but it hurts u know.

Hi,
is the suspension really Hydro or it is pneumatic?
Quite a lot of difference! Please describe what kind of shock absorber did you use and springs...

Ciao

hi.
Yes it has hydro suspension not pneumatic. you are right pneumatic suspension is much different from hydro.
i use industrial hydraulic shocks made many modifications ,and i made 3 accumulators to observe shocks (2 for front 1 for Rear). it has custom made electric controled hydraulic pump run by its toyota 3.0lt turbo charged engine.. it has total suspension lift of 0" to 13".. i am going to start new thread with complete detail and pictures.
..
Regards
Harpal Gill

Read though thread, din't see the need to start a new thread on lift kits or lifting a pick-up/bakkie,
Ya i guess most of you figured what's hit me off lately, ya I am looking at lifting the Xenon and was looking for some info or feedback from the knowledgeable in the 4x4 section. I did like the pics of the safari and the TL posted earlier, so looking forward for all the help I could get on the same and pull this project together soon and have a lifted Xenon.
