Anybody running Kelderman Air-Ride???

Just wondering if anyone is using a Kelderman Air-Ride on their trucks. I like what I see, but am thinking it may be too cost prohibitive. All said and done, how does the cost compair to the nicer (normal) lift kits out there? (Eg- Donahoe and Fabtek) :shrug: I would be doing the work myself...:

I don't have it.....I helped a good friend put it on his 2001 Dodge 3500, front and rear lift, holy PITA! There was 4 of us, 2 full time big rig mechanics and me and the owner. All said and done, the instructions were very poor, few peices fit right, most had to be trimmed here, or the truck had to be notched there type of thing. Tim wishes he would have never done it.:

This was one problem we had, there was an adjustable bar that went from the hanger on the left, to something, can't remember on the right. Tell me, how dose it go through the rear diff? BTW Tim asked to make sure that it was compatible with the Mag cover before he ordered. Turns out after waiting for 2 days for a phone call returned we had to notch out about 4 inches of the frame to make it fit

i dont have one myself but they had one up here at Waldoch, i checked it out <didnt get to see it in action> but it looked like a very good setup, quality parts, good finish, and im sure the ride is really nice as with most air ride applications....ive heard nothing but praise from my grandpa's business partner that has his 5th wheel tralier with air ride on it..they said nothing moves....

but thats all word of mouth.
