I'm not sure its something like that as its been fine for years, and the first month I had the car. One day the battery was dead and its been doing it ever since. My father in law and I unhooked the alternator entirely, the draw remained. I believe its rooted on the circuit (under the hood fusebox) labeled w.lift/CDL/something else.

I don't have air shocks, but I do think my problem might be similar to this. Possibly an accessory or electrical system that I no longer have, but the brain is there.... spider maybe?
Dropped it off with Trevor at British 4x4 service (b4x4s.com) today.
