Air Suspension

I gather when people refer to EAS they mean Air suspension, I am right and what does EAS stand for - Electric Air Suspension or Enjoy Abundant Sunshine?!

Also if you lower the truck onto the bump stops can you still drive it? Say you lower it down, can you then drive into a garage (a short little drive) or will it go all day like that?

Thanks

Close - Electronic Air Suspension.

Land Rover advise a speed limit (very low - about 15-20mph, IIRC), not sure about distance. In theory you can drive it all day, but it is very much like driving a tractor (an old one without suspension on the seat...), and you'd need new bump stops afterwards.

In most cases you can manually inflate the air bladders and then drive the car as normal, which is much better option :)

Yes, you can lower the P38a on it's bumpstops and drive it into a garage or so. You do this by lowering it and then pressing the inhibit switch on the dash. A warning will appear on the message centre: EAS Manual, and if you exceed a certain speed, the suspension will re-inflate itself to standard height.

The link to Rangerovers.net is very worthwhile. ;)
