Anyone remember the air suspension XJ, early 00s?

Way back around 2002, there was a company founded by a couple dot-com boomers that made air suspension systems for the XJ, TJ, etc. I'm not talking about an addon air spring, but an automated, self-leveling, air suspension. To my knowledge, no steel springs in the system at all. I am trying to recall their name - any old folks remember them?

Re: Anyone remember the air suspension XJ, early 00s?

I answered my own question- for some reason I was thinking AIResearch, which is of course a manufacturer of turbo systems.

It's actually Airock. Quite interesting, and if all goes well it's what I'll be adapting for my S10. Certainly, it should be adaptable from the TJ to the XJ world as well.

I have never seen that before. I only remember that Craig(?) of C-Rok had a custom air bag setup on his rig that made for some incredible displays of articulation.

I believe you mean this one -

I remember seeing the build thread on it many years ago, and talking with the owner about this and some of his products.
