To me, it just sort of looks like a bracket that was made to go above the shock tower and it uses the same bolt pattern as the coilover does...basically sandwiching them together.

I would imagine you could make a similar bracket and place it on our coil bucket the same spot (using the single main bolt).

However, I believe on our trucks the remote reservoir would have to mount below the coil bucket rather than above like your picture shows due to clearance issues above it. Also, I'm not sure how much clearance there is for it to stick out in front of the coilover spring with the upper control arm already pretty close to making contract during suspension travel.

Really just comes down to verifying clearances and then designing/making a bracket…

are there any other options to mount the reservoir? i was thinking on the frame just outside of the upper control arm vertically, but i wasnt sure if it would interfere with my wheel when turning at full lock
