I think it's clear that there are zero potential issues with this setup.

I was surprised when he said the base kit (without the Kings) was around $14,500. I would have guessed more.

Well, the hydraulic portion really is just used to adjust the ride height. It is not the actual suspension. The suspension is the coilovers.

Yep, looks idiot proof to me. There is no way your 5 year old kid would get a hold of your phone and start playing with buttons while you are under the truck looking at something.

The concept is crazy cool, but I just seems like there are WAY too many parts and pieces that could relatively easily fail, which could be catastrophic with this type of setup.

I give the guy props for getting as far as he has with it so far. Will be interesting to see how he makes out in the long run.
