What exactly is that contraption in the trunk?

What you see in the back is just the air tank and lines down to the manifold for air ride control. Under the bamboo is a false floor frame that has the manifold, ecu, air pumps, fuses, etc. It is all controlled by a digital control pad in the center arm rest.
