I bet it's going to be a little tougher to put air ride on the rear of the 712. After all they put rear air ride on Dave's ride, from the factory and never put it on the 718. The center pendulum going to make it tuff

Congrats on the new "Sweetish" toy! What condition is it in? what are your plans? Going to add an AC unit, or cage, like the 712?

Mechanically it,s quite good,some rust issues but no big deal.The big issue is it is painted a pea green metallic :( and a poor job at that.
looking to make a camper,a/c ,generator,water tank,etc...make a mini motorhome! Trying to make things more comfy for my bride..Now I need to build her laundry room the way she wants it. She originally said no more trucks until I finished that job. I used my usual charm and presto! I have a Volvo! She is way too nice to me..... 8) 8)

This suspension system wasn't designed to be able to make the Pinz Jump... you'd probably want hydraulic rams or something :lol: ... But we can change both of the rear tires (one at a time) without a jack. :shock: We just deflate one front side and inflate the other front, as well as inflate the opposite rear side... the result is the rear tire lifts off the ground enough to change it...

I've struggled changing tires in the middle of know were. find enough large rocks to put under the jack so that it will extend enough to put the spare on.

You could still freak people out. The Pinz draws alot of attention anyway. Imagine being at max lift at one light and bottomed out at the next light next to the same car from the previous light. Or maybe pull up with a pronounced list to the port side.

Couple big hunks of 4 X 6, or a 4 X 6 and a 2 X 4, will usually get a jack in place.

Here are two photos with a measuring tape:

Although its not the recommended method for changing a tire, the system can put a rear tire in the air. Here is a video of lifting a rear tire:
