My thought on these has always been how long would the bags last until they started wearing out just like coil springs do? Gotta think that the fill and release of air on them will wear out the material after time.

Air bags are much tougher than you think. I put 450,000 miles on a big truck in 3 years, many times grossing out pretty close to 80,000 lbs. This was on a complete air ride suspension, and never had any problems with the air bags. I don't think your going to put that kind of miles, or punishment, on your Jeep. They have been tested for years, and have done very well. Worst case scenario, you get a bag that ruptures, no big deal, you replace it.
