Wheels, Tires, and Suspension
Wheels and Tires
Every XV-LTS is outfitted with our standard 41 inch diameter, 12 inch wide, 22 ply Continental military-duty tires which dramatically increase both traction and ground clearance. The 41 inch military tire is designed to carry very heavy loads even when aired down and is mounted on an aluminum military grade bead-lock wheel. This tire and wheel combination boosts the XV-LTS minimum ground clearance to a massive 12.5 inches. This wheel/tire combination eliminates the factory dual rear wheels and solves the common problems of tracking poorly and getting flats when rocks become lodged in between the tires.
Air ride suspension is standard on every XV-LTS. Air bags at each corner provide the ability to raise and lower each wheel or axle independently with the touch of a button. This greatly improves ground clearance and approach/departure angles and allows easy in camp leveling. The suspension is outfitted with adjustable King remote reservoir shocks which are custom designed to work cohesively with the air ride suspension. Heavy duty sway bars are added front and rear to improve on road handling characteristics. This combination provides excellent handling both on and off road.
Compressed Air System
A standard on-board air system combines a high capacity DC air compressor with an air storage tank, multiple quick connect outlets and even an air horn! This makes it easy to air tires up, run air tools or inflate your raft or kayak.
