Since you have an LX470 (assuming the suspension is original) those are not conventional shocks, but rather hydraulic rams that push fluid into the globes that dampen the AHC system.

Casual 3 year old thread bump here but better than making more threads I guess?
What are the general thoughts on running a "power station" in line between the car and the fridge as an alternative to a second car battery?
I'm thinking a fridge like this:
and a power station like this:
