Air-suspension controller with the self-leveling feature for the Land Rover® Discovery 3 and 4 (LR3 and LR4 in the USA) & Range Rover® Sport L320 vehicles.
XLifter is an advanced air-suspension controller for the Land Rover® vehicles. XLifter allows you to take the air suspension capabilities of your Land Rover to the maximum, making your off-roading or expedition traveling greater experience.
XLifter is an electronic “lift kit” that lets you adjust the height of the vehicle according to your needs, by the touch of a button. In addition, the XLifter can automatically self-level the vehicle, so you no longer have to look for a flat spot while overlanding.
- Body height adjustment in seven pre-defined programs: -35 mm, -25 mm, -15 mm, 0 mm, +15 mm, +25 mm, +55 mm, +75 mm.
- Precise height adjustment from -40 mm to +75 mm in +-5 mm step in „free“ mode.
- Automatic self-leveling from up to 4.5° slope for comfortable camping.
- Intuitive controls, graphics OLED display.
- Easy „Plug&Play” installation without in-vehicle changes, wireless technology.
- XLifter mobile app ready for download from Apple Store / Play Market.
- Compatible with the Land Rover Discovery 3, 4, a Range Rover Sport L320. Range Rover L322 in development.
- Dimensions: controller 40 × 71 × 15 mm, EAS unit: 70 × 110 × 29 mm

How does XLifter work?
Imagine the XLifter as an electronic equivalent of lift rods (i.e. the Johnson rods), but with the length of each rod is adjusted electronically according to the current setting.
The signals from the wheel height sensors are transferred to the XLifter EAS unit via the “Y” wire loom. The EAS unit’s main task is to adjust these signals accordingly. In real-time, a thousand times per second. Viewed this way, the EAS units are “muscles” that carry hard work.
By contrast, the control module is the “brain” of the system. It contains all of the intelligence and translates user inputs into specific instructions for the EAS unit.
What is the XLifter capable of?
The XLifter offers two main options for height adjustment: the preprogramed “Lifter” mode for easy use and the “Lifter-free” mode for unrestricted manual height adjustment in 5 mm steps.
Maximum lift with XLifter is 125 mm above Standard ROAD height.
Excellent ground clearance 330 mm with 32″ tyres.
In the „Lifter“ mode, 7 pre-set programs are available:
|Program name||∆ Height||Description|
|Sky Rocket||+75 mm||Extra high clearance, for technical terrain. Equivalent to the “extended” mode. Use temporarily and with caution.|
|Off Road||+55 mm||Standard off road. Equivalent to the original “Off Road” setting, but without speed restriction. Permanent use.|
|OneInch Lift||+25 mm||Light off road. Permanent use.|
|Aesthetic Lift||+15 mm||Aesthetics. Permanent use.|
|Disengaged||+0 mm||No-change. XLifter is invisible for the vehicle.|
|Highway Drop||-15 mm||Aesthetics. Permanent use.|
|OneInch Drop||-25 mm||Better aerodynamics & fuel consumption. Smaller cornering rolls. Permanent use.|
|Super Drop||-35 mm||Extra low mode for low-clearance spaces / loading the vehicle. Air springs almost deflated. Temporary use.|
The selected height changes are always added / subtracted to the original Land Rover position selected on the centre console (“Access”, “Standard”, “Off Road”). Thus, the maximum height that can be reached from the “Standard” position is +12.5 cm (5″).
Please note that the Skyrocket program is disabled when in original “Off Road” position due to wheel articulation limits. You can use the “Lifter-free” mode for such a extreme lifts.
The height adjustment done by the XLifter are not limited by the vehicle speed.
The XLifter is the world’s first and only kit that allows the Land Rover vehicle self-level automatically, up to from 4.5° degrees slope.
The XLifter contains high-precision tilt sensor. It is calibrated once, when the vehicle is at even surface. When at camping spot, just press the button and the XLifter levels the vehicle automatically by adjusting height of each wheel accordingly.
This feature has been specially developed for all over-landers or expedition travelers. Roof tent or “in car” sleeping setup? Don’t bother finding flat spot anymore!
Plug & play installation
Installation is easy. It takes about 20 minutes and you can totally do it yourself. Not rocket science. There are only two screws to unscrew and Wireless communication between the units eliminates difficult in-vehicle wiring.
The EAS unit is fixed with Velcro fasteners and is connected by the Y cable loom.
The Control unit can be placed anywhere in the vehicle and it is powered from the 12 V cigarette lighter socket (or any other suitable 12 V point).
There are no changes in the vehicle. No drilling, cutting, or soldering. This means that XLifter can be easily removed if necessary.
Still not sure? We’ve made the installation video guide for you. See it here on YouTube. It’s based on L3/Discovery3, but D4 and RRS are very similar. And a word of warning – it’s a special edition. The current COVID-19 situation is serious, but we are still allowed to smile, aren’t we?
Built for reliability
The XLifter is designed and built for reliability from the beginning. The Control unit and the EAS unit are intentionally separated. This “split” design allows the EAS unit to be as simple as possible. And what is simple is reliable. In addition, robust protection circuitry is built-in. All inputs and outputs are protected for overvoltage, polarity reverse and radio interference… The XLifter has passed thousands of hours of testing in several vehicles without any major issues. You can just depend on it.
As safe as possible
Though the XLifter is not officially certified device, safety comes first. The EAS has several layers of protection both on hardware and software level.
The software algorithm intelligently limits wheel adjustments to stay within allowed limits. The control module senses the original vehicle height and automatically restricts incompatible pre-set programs in the original “Access” or “Off Road” position heights. This means that the original vehicle system is less prone to throw non-fatal “yellow” warnings.
The control module has the keylock feature. This safety measure is designed to allow for when the vehicle is driven by a 3rd party and you want to prevent them from changing the air suspension settings.
The XLifter is portable between all compatible cars. Have you installed the XLifter into Discovery 3 and upgrading to Discovery 4? Take XLifter with you. It’s just a matter of settings. You are not locked to one specific vehicle type.
And there is a Wi-Fi firmware upload facility. When new firmware is ready, perhaps with new features, you upload it from your cell phone, notebook etc. Simply, wirelessly.
Mobile APP support
Ok, a moment of honesty. The XLifter is intentionally designed in a way that a mobile APP is not needed. The logic is simple. The XLifter is tuned to make things easy while Off-roading. Working with a mobile touchscreen while negotiating bumpy rough technical terrain is hard. There is a good reason for the simple layout of physical keys on the control module.
But, we understand the world’s love affair with mobile apps and kept all this in mind while building our ours. The result is a no-nonsense, simplistic yet clever, and ultimately helpful app. So if you prefer – use your cell phone to level, adjust, select presets and check compressor temperature, or any other of the remaining several features, some of which are unique to the app. It’s a highly functional remote control for your unit you will love to mess with.
