I had to take the coils out, remove the bolts for the spacers and then put the spacers back in without bolts, much the same as the original rubber isolaters were, they were a pain to hold there and keep lined up while the coils went back in (used to double sided tape) but it seems like the bolts are more for convenience than anything else. I did consider running the bags upside down but then the air lines would be a lot more exposed, it would have worked though.
Good to know. Thanks for the reply!!

Really impressive build, very nice mods. Im thinking of getting my very first Jeep next year and like following these mod threads. (I always thought Australia was the land of Toyota Land Cruisers or Land Rovers. Nice to see a Jeep there.)
The Japanese makes are by the far most popular here but Jeep has a great following with specific offroad Jeep events and clubs, realistically 90% of my wheelin' is done with other Jeeps :)

Now the Jeep has the airbags for the trailer and this little addon turning up today I just need our Sydney lockdown to finish so I can test it all out with some remote travel :)

Got the Jeep branded Spot X, can't buy it in Australia and Spot don't ship here so ended up getting it to go to my US -> AUS forwarding address and saves a $100 or so in the process. Will grab a ram mount for it locally.

So worked out it sits nicely in the Bulletpoint phone mount so ordered another arm and mount to mount it alongside my phone (which gets mounted in landscape for offroad mapping etc), saves sticking a ram mount to the windscreen. Will use the second ball on the dash mount and have it over near the steering wheel, wont worry about power since they have a pretty long battery life (days) and I can charge up at night in the camper etc.

All ready for some remote travel, just need us to get out of lockdown now, best I could do was the local fish and chip shop for some dinner, didn't really need the Spot X or Gaia Maps on Android auto for it or the check on the second battery setup.... but hey.... going a little stir crazy I guess.
