Which Hydraulic Leveling System would you use?

If you were going to add a hydraulic leveling system, which would you choose? Why?

If the hydraulic leveling system was factory installed option or standard then I would buy one. I would not install an aftermarket system I believe the frame of the 5er would not be sufficient to support the level system. This could also void any type of warranty that the manufacture offers on the frame.

Just my $0.02

Ditto. When the frame manufacturer states you should do nothing to the rear of the frame except add a bike rack at a max of 200# (don't dare tow anything), that tells me it's a weak frame

If your frame is made by LCI, you can talk to LCI about adding their leveling system and not voiding your warranty.
