Air bagging Comanche for LOW! Can it be done?

I just picked up my first jeep Comanche so stoked.


Was just wondering if air bagging a jeep is possible ?
Never owned a truck only Vw's. so not to smart with trucks

Of course it's possible. Do your research and get to work.

Be patient. The MJ forum isn't the most bustling page on the web. It might be a few days before someone with something to say sees your post and responds.

Maybe because nobody has done it on an MJ?

Have you ever airbagged a vehicle?

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

Like, to make a mini truck out of it? The horror.

Damn near anything can be done if you try hard enough. So you just need to figure out how much work, money, and time into it and go for it.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

If you have ever air bagged a vehicle before then you should be able to figure it out.

He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

It Wouldn't be too hard, it'd be a lot easier with two wheel drive so you dont have to worry about the front axle and clearing everything once you lower the truck. the rear would be easy to lower you'd just have to cut into the bed.

My truck is a rear wheel drive but I'm just lost at the leaf spring part.

To the other guys asking if I ever bagged a car or truck. That's a nooooo

built a frame for it out of 2x3 and did a toyota front clip so it has control arms up from lays body on 18's had to heavily modify the upper and lower control arms and had to triangulate the lower arms so i could get rid of the radious arms and did toyota drop spindles with isuzu hubs and rotors so i made it 6 lug and put a isuzu rear in it
