Service 4×4’s emergency kit provides peace of mind to owners of overlanding 4×4 running on factory air suspension. Aimed primarily towards Discovery 3, 4 and 5 plus Range Rovers and Range Rover Sport, it works with other models and brands air suspensions.

Although the current generation of air springs are far more reliable than previous ones, should an incident happen to the airbag, to the electronic management or to the air compressor while on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, this device, along with an onboard compressor, will get you back on track.

 

The kit allows blowing up each airbag independently, by connecting the provided air pipes to the suspension then running air in using industrial strength air valves.

The kit’s main asset is that it doesn’t need to be fitted beforehand, allowing owners not to risk avoiding Land Rover’s warranty.

Multilingual fitting instructions are included. Service 4×4 is a French Land Rover independent specialist lead by Dakar Rally driver and team captain Dominique Totain.

Verdict: Easy to use, so why chance it?

Price: £140
